Wanderlust Papers With A Twist

Happy Tuesday!

I have been stroking the Wanderlust papers since I got them - anyone else do that?!  They are so very beautiful and I've used them in such a way that you could easily forget it's the same paper pad.


For my first card today, I decided to go with the travel theme and and of course what do you do when you go on holiday? You send a postcard!  I used one of the papers from the pad to make my own postcard by first cutting to size then I used glimmer paste through a stencil to add the 'Carta Postale'.  I finished off by using distress inks around the edges to give it a vinage look.


I fussy cut some suitacases and globes from the paper pad and added it to my card with foam pads to give dimension.  I finished off the card with a sentiment stamped on the same paper pad  and adding distress ink around the edges.

Next up, I stuck with the glimmer paste and picked up my favourite - Fairy Dust.  As some of the papers are quite floral I decided to incorporate some leaves on the background of my card through a stencil.


Again, I fussy cut an image and stuck it on the top corner of my card and stamped a sentiment for the bottom left hand corner.

For my final creation I used black gesso to cover one of the papers as the particular sheet I chose reminded me of the intricate fences and embroidery I'd seen when I'd visited Italy.  To soften the black I used the art wax to add copper highlights.


This time I just fussy cut a part of the paper that said 'Take Me Anywhere' as I thought it would be a good way of incopororating a sentiment.  Besides, I love to be taken anywhere don't you?!

I hope I've inspired you to use your Wanderlust pad with other mediums to give your papers a very unique look.

See you again later in the month!
