New card at Cards by Carol using The Scenic Papers.
Misty Provence: The Scenic Papers
I don’t know if these lovely scenes are actually in Provence! But they fit quite well with the kit, I think. They started life as illustrated plates from a journal called Ackermann’s Repository, published in Regency England from 1809 to 1829. I found the scans HERE, in EK Duncan’s gallery. I see that she has added some more since I visited. I’ll be adding these to my collection! This is what the originals looked like…
I increased the size to 12×12″, reduced the opacity over a background texture in a colour from the Misty Provence palette, added lace at the top and damask to the water. Thanks, Eveyd, for a great find!
Another card made using Misty Provence.
The Bird Journalling Mat and the teeny Birdhouse
are included in the card download.
…and on to the elements for Misty Provence.
I have lots more goodies in store that I hope I can work into some more cards,
so come back soon! Also I made the polka dot paper for the above card, so there may be another batch of papers too.
Misty Provence is slowly coming together so here is the first card I made with it,
…and here are the Papers
based on this gorgeous swatch from Design Seeds.
Playing catch-up with the last card based on juno Couture!
…and a peek at the colour scheme for my next kit :-)
Design Seeds is an incredible resource.
If you have a favourite colourway, why not find it on the site,
send me an email with the image or a link to the page
and I’ll see if I can design a kit with your colours!
