More Paper from Italy...

Oh, this is such beautiful paper! When I saw this sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I paired the paper with CTMH Bamboo and Indian Corn Blue cardstock. I stamped transparencies with Versamark Wheat chalk ink. In the next image, you'll see this up close. It is sometimes a dilemma on how to attach transparencies to your artwork. On this card, I used Bamboo Edge Anchors. (Other times I have used Glue Dots vellum sheets - that works well, too.) Now, I needed to highlight the beautiful paper - not hide it. That's why this sketch was perfect. I added a some flowers and a hat pin. I have someone in mind for this card, and I hope she likes it!!
