Oooh, that Pion Paper!



Hello, so glad you stopped by. I made this pretty little ditty just 'cause I wanted to use my new Pion paper. It is just so gorgeous and it was just sitting on my shelf gently whispering to me...come on, don't you want to see what you can make with me??? It's been there for two weeks now and finally wore me down and here's the result of my playing around this evening. I started with the Vintage Cabinet Card die. I cut a base in white CS and then a couple of layers of the Pion Studio of Memories 6x6" paper. The top of the white base that shows on top got a coat of Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint and when dry, I sponged Antique Linen DI over it. The flower was created using several dies, white CS, Weathered Wood DI, stamped lightly with a script stamp in Ranger Sepia Archival Ink. The flourishes are from the Festive Greenery die and the Venise Lace fan is from my Etsy shop. I dyed it with coffee and painted it with Weathered Wood reinker/water mixture. Weathered Wood really matches the paper perfectly. I made the little sentiment label on my computer and gave it a couple of coats of UTEE and sponged it with Vintage Photo DI. I decided I wanted it to be a free standing desk bling so I added a stand cut with the Small Easel Die.


That's it for my sweet little project tonight.  Hope you enjoyed your visit.

I'm sorry so many Ranger products are out of stock in my Etsy.  Ranger is very slow in filling orders right now.  I assume they are backed up after CHA with so many new releases.

It is just so delightful, this little ditty as you call it.
The Weathered wood is one of my favourite colours and it looks so gorgeous on your fan, the colour palette as a whole is gorgeous Linda.

You don't know what a relief it is to know that I'm not the only one who paper talks to!
Your collaboration with the verbal paper and your mad skills have created a spectacular ditty.

Noticed at the top where it begins as a die cut shape and then you fade to a tear...that looks wonderful.
A real beauty here, for sure!

Virtual high five, chica. ;)
I'm going back to your store in a few minutes, might add more to the order so I'm glad Ranger is taking their time. More opportunity for me to shop. :)
