I've used this technique a few times with Christmas papers and it just looks stunning. It came to mind when I was looking at the Lap of Luxury papers so I went to town and created three cards, two featuring the Lap of Luxury DSP and one wiht the Love Letter DSP.
I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out. What do you think?
This card features the strips of Lap of Luxury DSP, Just Believe stamp set, Stamp n Write markers in Concord Crush, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz and Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die. I've used Concord Crush and Shimmery White.
This version uses River Rock, Lap of Luxury DSP and the new Paper Flowers and I've also used the Shimmer Paint in a spritzer bottle with a small amount of water to spritz some champagne glitter on the ivory flower, then added a few drops of Elegant Eggplant ink into the spritzer and sprayed the smaller flower purple. This adds the most amazing glitter on the flowers. Leave them to dry before you put the card together, I've used a sentiment from a retired set and the large oval punch to punch it out.
Keeping with the same theme, I've used Newsprint DSP and Love Letter DSP along with Riding Hood Red base. The flowers are again spritzed with Champagne Shimmer Paint and reinker, this time Riding Hood Red and I've used an antique brad for the flower centre.
