Well, that shaving cream tutorial I mentioned in my last post got me hooked. I made some more sheets of marbleized paper today, using greens and coordinating colors. It's nice to have more to do with my SU refills than just refill the ink pads when they get a bit dry.
Here are some more cards featuring the fancy papers I made. I really love how the pink and purple paper from yesterday turned out. The stamp is from SU (Sweet Serendipity) and the ink is Lilac Lace, a retired SU color.
The green and red paper was intended for Christmas cards. I have Christmas paper, but I don't find what I have inspiring to work with. Christmas cards are a struggle for me. I really like this one and I think I will try to replicate the background paper enough times to make my own Christmas cards with this design.
In person, I couldn't tell whether the tree looked better colored or plain. It's wonderful how looking at a photograph often clears up this kind of question for me. I'm going to go color the other tree now. I think it looks much better colored.
Can I ask you a favor? Please go vote for my card at Spotted Canary
