Patterned Paper #5

Hi! I hope that you are having a good day. I want to show you another way that you can use up those patterned paper scraps. I pulled out some paper scraps and cut them in wavy lines. On each one I sponged dark ink on the edges and then sponged around the finished panel. Here are a few backgrounds I made.

Here is a finished card I made using another background like this.

I stamped the Inkadinkado cat, using black ink, onto orange card stock. I fussy cut him and added him to the card. I used green sparkle enamel dots to add interest to the card. The saying is from Our Daily Bread Designs.

Thanks so much for stopping by. May this inspire you to get out those paper scraps and get creative! Have a great day!

There's such vibrancy to the colours and patterns you used in your unique background, April ... and a wonderful cohesiveness! What a perfect spot for that quirky orange cat! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Anita :)
