Vintage Romance

At As You Like It this week we want to know what your favourite papers are.  I have fallen in love with Maja Design papers and this one from the Vintage Romance stack is one of my (current) favourites because of the pretty florals and pastel colours.  I love both sides of it, and hate to see papers stuck down on a card when the reverse is wasted, so I've made a little gift box which shows both sides (you can see the reverse on the inside of the side panel but also I've used some scraps to make two dinky little tags which I've stuck together at an angle and fixed on with a foam pad. 






Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Fur: Pumice Stone, Black Soot 
  • Ears: Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
  • Grass/Leaves: Shabby Shutters, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Blues: Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass

Happy crafting

Always decisions to be made when using double sided papers but you've shown both sides to advantage on this pretty gift box. The little critter is so adorable too.

Aww, this is utterly adorable and a Purple Onion stamp too! I've been pining after a couple of those wee cuties. Not easy to get them to NZ though sadly! Love your sweet gift box and I'm totally with you on the Maja papers! I have sooooo many, but I still have a tough time cutting into them. Beautiful, beautiful papers. Love this gorgeous creation. Hugs, Wends xoxo
