Pink Wallpaper

I love making cards using freebies!  Today's card started life as a wallpaper sample - I am always popping into decorating shops and getting samples that look as though they can be used on cards. I think this stuff is called anaglypta (sp?) or at least that's what my mam calls is - the stuff that adds texture to walls then you paint over it in whatever colour you fancy...


After matting a piece of the wallpaper on some pink card I painted splodges using paint samples and also painted some heavy paper in the same colours. Once dry, I carefully cut the paper and rolled it to make paint rollers - the handles are made from wire and tiny pieces of that rubber tubing kids make bracelets with - Scoobydoos I think thay are called.  Voila - a perfect clean and simple new home card.

I've entered this card into this week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays - make a clean and simple card using the colour pink.

  7. SUPER clever and just all-around awesome. I love the embossed pattern too! I see that you are from England - on our honeymoon years ago we met a family from Sutherland, Tyne & Wear: Susan and Peter George. What a small world it would be if you know them too. They are so kind and continue to send us a card every year at Christmas. So happy to see you at CAS-ual Fridays this week! Thanks for joining us!
