If you had to name one of the things you absolutely need in your projects, what would it be? For me, for a long time, I would say it was scrapbook paper, but recently I was challenged to make layout backgrounds without using any scrapbook paper. Instead, I used watercolor paint, stamping, embossing, and texture paste to make my own unique scrapbook paper. I enjoyed making my own backgrounds so much, so I decided to make this beautiful spring/summer card using this technique as well.
The background of this card is made on watercolor paper, using watercolor paint, texture paste and stencils, stamping, and old book pages. The beautiful fence I also made myself, using chipboard and a few layers of acrylic paint. The center composition features lace, flowers, sisal, cords, and beatific elements from P13 The Four Seasons - Summer collection that inspired me to make this beautiful card. And, as a surprise, behind the fence on the front, there is a small envelope for a gift card.
