Osa Swap for March


I had an Oriental Swap art Swap to mail out for the March ACE-16 swap today. 
I wanted to do something completely different.  So I picked a color I rarely  work with - pink!
I used a yummy paper pad  called Blush Glam by Craft Smith.


These images are printed on Neenah  Solar white laid finish, with a little distressing. I also added pink glitter to the cherry blossom trees.  

I have found using textured papers work really well at grabbing the ink and getting a good print.
With these two card, one I modge podged and one I did not.  I am not sure which I like better.











Pretty papers!
These have the feel of what in the printing world is called 'calendar paper'.  A very velvety finish, lovely for card making!!




Thanks for stopping by!!

Hi Ginny - well I had to go back to Michael's in West Springfield yesterday because my new Ott lamp didn't work! Bummer, but anyway, I got it replaced and I also happened to see more of this fabulous paper there and I grabbed a new pack for only $5.99! A score, since I paid $13.99 for the first "Blush Glam" one with you in Canton!

You used pink!!!! I like the one on the left best. Is that the one you put mod podge on? Did you put it on the whole card or just parts? I cannot tell and have a problem using it. The cards look wonderful. Hugs.
