Recycled Creations

Good morning and Happy Monday! I just wanted to share this card with you all because I did a lot of crafting this weekend. A wonderful Etsy customer of mine asked me to re-create some of my past works for her and I agreed. I like to keep my creations one of a kind so I changed the colors and the papers but kept the layout the same. I was really happy with how it turned out.
Patricia at The Paper Temptress sent me a new water color paper to try. It is called HQ Water color paper. At first I was a little skeptical because it is thinner than my normal WC paper but the texture was really beautiful. Once I stamped on it, I was hooked. The image came out much darker and clearer than my Strathmore and Canson WC papers. When I painted, it absorbed just as fast as the others as well. I am hooked.
I finished my card with a Cappucino Mica/Metallic and Basis burgundy cardstock. My DP is DCWV Once Upon a Time collection.
