Oh So Lovely Cards - Megan

Hi Everyone :)

Today I wanted to share with you a couple of cards Ive made using the new Kaisercraft collection, Oh So Lovely and my newest obsession ;) the Prima Dolls Stamps.  This collection is a lovely feminine one with soft pinks and grey and aqua.  Its beautiful!

This first card was a bit of an experiment and Im pleased with how it came out - otherwise you wouldn't be seeing it lol  ;)  The background has been created by tearing pieces of paper and placing them on top of the plain base piece.  Ive then gessoed over the top to give it a 'white wash' type of look.  Behind the frame are strips created with a mixture of paper and wash, and then lastly Ive randomly stamped over the background.

The close up shows you some of the detail in behind that cluster.

This next card was fun to create! :)  Ive coloured some of the doll but made her clothes out of scraps of paper - to give the dress a bit of depth Ive layered the dress above the frill with foam tape.

The doily in the background is from the shop - it comes that colour!  A perfect match to the collection :)  and there are oodles of colour choices to choose from too.  Ive layered the same die over top of the doily, in two different cardstock colours before adhering my chipboard stars.  These I have gessoed, then stamped and inked.
Those Prima Dolls I just love, although the colouring thing Im still learning how to do!  When I was little I loved paper dolls, so maybe thats where my love for these has come from.

Oh So Lovely is available in the shop for preorder at the moment and has 20% off and there just happens to be some Prima Dolls in the shop too ;)  not that Im enabling you in any way but you can find those here.

Thanks for popping by!
