Use Your Paper for BBB!

Hello Everyone, back sooner than I expected, I trust you are well and hopefully enjoying the lovely warm day.

There is a new challenge blog in town called Back to Basics and Beyond,BBB. you can find it here and I've been invited to be part of the new Design Team. The Blog is aimed at helping new crafted learn technique, and perhaps refreshing seasoned crafters skills. There is lots of interesting techniques planned for the coming weeks, so why not pop in for a visit as see what it's all about.

Today sees the third challenge and called "Use your Paper", the paper in question is a 12x12  sheet of paper and to see how many card you can make with it. Here is what I've managed to create with the beautiful First Edition Noir et Chic paper;
The paper is a beautiful cream and black/grey design and the sheet I chose was double sided which let me have contrast to my designs. I've also used the paper to cut out the various dies I've used to embellish the cards, so I managed five cards in all as you can see..
One one card I used one of CB new stamps from the Lords and Ladies set and coloured it with watercolours to tone in with the colour theme.
I expected to be daunted with this challenge, but I found I enjoyed it as it let me revisit my beautiful papers, and the ideas kept flowing.

I hope you will join in the challenge, it's fun. Pleased have a visit with the other DT members and see what they have created.

Thank to everyone who has left comments on my last card.
Have a lovely day,
