Barbara Phelps 3 Cards

Dragonfly Tags On A Card

Barbara : For this card, I started out with a soft violet-grey cardstock, stamped a wordy background stamp here and there on it. I then used a cream-colored cardstock, and randomly added colors of terra cotta, purple and green to the cardstock using cosmetic sponges. I then used the same wordy background stamp on small tags, stamped the dragonfly in complementary colors. Then I strung a soft gold ribbon, plus gold thread, to which I added glass jewels, through the tag holes.

Faux Cross-Stitched Card

Barbara : In order to create a faux cross-stitching effect, I used an inexpensive plastic stencil which I taped to my cardstock. Over the top of the stencil, I taped a strip of drywall tape. I then stippled the colors through the tape and stencil on to the light cardstock.

I tore the cross-stitching paper on one side, layered, added some little ribbons and decorative paper to the base cardstock.

Vintage Style Photo Card

Barbara : For this monochromatically colored card, I used decorative papers in the same tones of rose and cream to complement this clip art photo. I then added drywall tape to the left-hand side of the card, to which I'd adhered ribbons and lace. Topped off the card with a cream-colored satin ribbon, and soft pink jewels.
