Karen here with the second of my Whisper projects. For this one I wanted to showcase the beautiful stamps and used them as a feature on each side of my page.
On this page I have used the reverse side of Ecru paper, a piece of the reverse side of Earthy paper, Buff paper, Kaisercard Snow Weave card, 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, Flora and Fauna acetate sheet, collectables, sticker sheet and Whisper clear stamps. I also used a brown manila tag and a white doily from my own supplies.
I started by stamping the sprigs of flowers down both sides of my card, with the Whisper clear stamps, being careful to get them as close as possible. I then added butterflies where there was available space – three on the left and four on the right.
I then used Kaisercraft Colouring Pencils (which are on sale at the moment) to colour the stamped images.
I cut a piece of Ecru paper 12 ins tall and 5 ins wide and stuck this, vertically, to the centre of my page. Next I added 4in x 9 in piece of Earthy paper (reserved from my previous page), a 5.5in x 2 in piece of paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and a 5.25 x 1 in piece, with gold butterflies, from the same pad. I used another piece from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad as my photo mount.
Onto the photo mount I added a doily at the top right and a manila tag at the bottom left. I then added my photo on foam pads. I cut the title from Buff paper and placed at the top right corner of my photo.
At the bottom of my photo I added the film strip from the collectables, with a piece of the butterfly border sticker. I also added a phrase from the sticker sheet, collectables were placed under the photo at the top right and under over the tag at the bottom left of my photo. The final touch was to fussy cut all the butterflies from the Flora and Fauna acetate sheet and scatter about my page.
I loved how this paper range worked perfectly with an old black and white photo of me. I have used a really vintage photo for my final project which I will show you later in the month.
