Julie: Cards for the cycling gent!

Hello again.

If you're anything like me, an incureable pattern-collector, you'll be pleased to hear that the shop is now stocking a new range of patterned papers. New. Patterns. Need I say more?

They're 6x6 pads from the Collections Elements paper range and for today's post I've been working with the Noir et Creme pack:
As someone who likes collecting and using different patterns all the time in their work I especially like the fact that there are only 2 sheets of each design in these packs. It means I know I'm going to use them up before getting tired of them!

Here's how I've been using 2 of those designs:
The first paper I used is this black damask-style reminiscent of vintage wallpapers:
My second card uses the text print:

To co-ordinate with the vintage feel of the papers I printed out some apropriate images from the Vintage Labels image CD directly on to plain white cardstock and aged using Distress Ink:
The images were then layered on to a combination of the vintage Noir et Creme designs and sheets from the more modern Onirie 'Sweetness of Living' range:
If you liked my gentlemen cyclists then you might want to hop over to my blog today for some cards featuring their female co-riders!

Here's a peek at one of them:

That's all from me for this time round so I'll be on my bike for now ...

all that's left for me to do is wish you a Happy New Patterned Paper Day ... surely the discovery of new paper designs should be an occasion for a public holiday? Wouldn't you say?

See you soon.
