No Patterned Paper Card

Made this card for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog.The Challenge was to make a card with either no backing paper, no bought patterned backing paper or make your own backing paper, I went for the first one obviously. The fairy teddy is a Penny Black stamp I've had for years now but she is so cute she still gets to see daylight a few times a year. I stamped her in versafine smokey grey and then watercoloured her, cut her out, layered her onto the card over another stamped image to get her halo in and added the essential glitter. Stamped sentiment in smokey grey and brushed over with watercolour paint and glittered too. Added ribbon and bling hearts.

Sometimes a stamp can be so pretty you don't need backing paper to be fighting with the image.

Hi Louby, Hope you had a good weekend. Your new card is just gorgeous! I've never seen this stamp before and it's really great, as is your perfect colouring! I think the no paper option was a great choice, it really makes the image stand out. Nice one!
