irresistibly yours and sheltered tree

Several of my customers have been ordering the Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper as their FREE Sale-a-bration item and were enquiring how to use and colour them. In the pack you get 12 sheets of beautiful 12 x 12 papers in 6 different designs. 

I have tried four different ways of colouring them so far:  Inked Sponge; rubbing alcohol and re-inker in a spritzer; brayer and ink and blendabilities pens.  

They were all very easy to do and you get great effects from each.

These are the cards we have made in the classes a couple of weeks ago using the Irresistibly Yours papers and different techniques of colouring

Sheltering Tree stamp set with the irresistibly yours paper as a background using rubbing alcohol and  Pistachio Pudding ink refil in a spritzer

 Shaker Card using Big Day Sale-a-bration Free stamp set with the background paper coloured with  soft sky inked sponge

The paper on the above card was coloured using a brayer and blushing bride ink

Of course  you don't have to colour the irresistibly yours papers, they can be used just as they are out of the pack

I designed another similar shaker card but used one of the other Sale-a-bration papers, Best Day Ever instead.

  1. Love your ideas, Linda. I agree the paper is great, perhaps it will come back in the next catalogue. Mx
