Now, as a papercrafter, doesn't that name just make you curious?! Well Patricia, the PaperTemptress, is celebrating her ONE YEAR anniversary and I was invited to help her celebrate by helping YOU have a chance to WIN!
First off, here is a card I made to highlight some of the most beautiful paper that this fabulous company offers.
I worked with the Bronze and Copper metallic papers to bring you this Thanksgiving card. I colored my image very lightly with Koh-I-Noor pencils (no OMS) as I was going for a very soft look and didn't want the image to fight with the glory of this paper. After cutting the main image with an oval nestie, while the ivory CS was still IN the nestie I lightly rubbed some copper metallic paste over the image to soften it and add some richness. I used GKD's ivory cardstock as my base, then I added a layer of the PaperTemptress Bronze metallic followed by a Copper metallic that I had run through my textile CB embosser. This metallic paper embosses SO beautifully!
Using a recent sketch from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, I put together the rest of the card, with a simple nestie mat made from the bronze metallic paper followed by my main focal image on ivory. A simple bit of organdy metallic/pearlized ribbon and a few deep brown rhinestones for some "glitz" completed the card.
Here's a close up so hopefully you can see the real beauty of the paper - it IS tricky to photograph to catch the sheen without the glare :-)
Ok - here's the scoop on the Treasure Hunt.
To celebrate the 1 year anniversary, Patricia is hosting a Treasure (Blog) Hunt starting on Saturday the 24th, the actual day PaperTemptress originally opened!!
