October LPS Sneak Peek #4

So today is another sneak peek day! I REALLY like this set and used the Batik technique on it, but instead od using 2 colors I used just one! I do like how it turned out and the dove and swirl are a different shade...just very subtle!

I am normaly a total paper hoarder...so today I decided to share some of my love of paper...I have actually been a lotmore bold about using it! Maybe it's because I know we are planning on moving and I can't take everything with me...makes me more free to use some of the things I've bought! Use it or loose it mentality I guess!

Anywho. This card makes me smile! I looks tranquile to me! Reminds me of a spa or something. The technique on the main image panel is made using water color paper, ink refills, and clear embossing powder, it's batik and colorwash way...full details here!

Once I got the desired color on the batik, I sponged the edges using Baja Breeze...loving that color! The base of the card uses sage shadow...odd color combo but stange enough I feel that it works! I have been totally addicted to these little charms! Hopefully I'll run out soon! LOL

thewhole card came together very simply and I'm pleased with the results! Thanks for looking!

Don't forget to check out the Little Paper Shop Blog to see what the rest of the divas are up to...and maybe even some prizes!
