Loving Kaisercraft's Mumma Bushka

First of all I just want to thank each and every one of you for leaving such beautiful comments on my blog. I must admit, I tend to neglect my poor little blog from time to time, but your lovely comments keep me going. So a heartfelt thanks for taking the time to drop by and leave your little mark here :)

Now, as for the scrapping, I've been a teensy eansy bit busy today, doing not much of what I should have been doing, but just couldn't resist using these awesome Mumma Bushka papers from Kaisercraft. I so wish I had visited my LSS before the DT call was due. The grey background paper is actually from a really old Kaisercraft range that I had in my stash. I added a Prima crystal flourish and have revived my old retro flower punches with some new ideas from Gabrielle Pollaco's blog (link on sidebar). Mel introduced me to her blog a little while ago, and her work is just so gorgeous and rich. Her pages are like individual works of art, and have so much detail in each one. I also tried her technique of tearing the paper on the side to reveal another layer of scrumptious paper, and loved how it added some balance with the bottom right corner. I also used a gorgeous Stampendous butterfly stamp inked with versamark and chalked with various shades of yellow/oranges.

This cutsie little card was the result of a challenge over at Scrap Pile to create a shaped card (do I get bonus points for using up my scraps???). I am sooo in love with these gorgeous rich papers atm. I just drew the outline on a card freehand, and cut it out, then covered with the 2 different papers.
