“Paris is always a good idea”
If like me you are a Audrey Hepburn fan you will know that this quote is from Sabrina. These papers make me think of Paris and the fact that they are black and etched in gold just add to the classiness of them.
The papers I am talking about are Craftwork Cards Toile de Jouy – Jet. You may know that I was a huge fan of the Tapestry Blue and Rose versions of these papers. I couldnt wait for Mr DHL man to deliver this set and I wasnt disappointed.
Here are two cards which show off the papers in all their black and white glory and the stunning swift has returned. This time she is gold embossed!
The papers in themselves were gorgeous but they also allowed me to use my newly acquired Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens.
The sparkle pens don’t really show up in this photo but trust me these flowers sparkle. I used two or three shades of orange from my collection and then I used the clear Sparkle pens over the top. The effect made me very happy. The tags in this collection match the papers perfectly so I coloured them in too. I used a golden ribbon to pull it together. Even better would have been a burnt orange ribbon but I havent come across them yet!
This was the card and box set that received lots of interest on the CWC Fan page. The Design Team were impressed too. It made me realise that even if you are looking at black and white papers if you are bold with your colour choices you can achieve a completely different look. To be honest if I made this card again I would be tempted to add the topper to black cardstock. When I do I will let you know what it looks like.
