A New Design Team!

Today is my first post as a design team member for Leaky Shed Studio.

As soon as I saw the kites, I fell in love!  They are so fun and whimsical and I knew I wanted to do my first project with them!  Today I have two different cards to share with you! I am also linking these up at the current issue at Paper Issues - Mum's the Word
For this one I just used the outline piece and backed it with patterned paper.  Combining it with other spring elements makes for a fun whimsical card perfect for sharing with a friend!

I used acryclic white paint to color my kites.

For this card I went more clean and simple.  I back each quadrant of the kite with a different patterned paper and then also did the same on the card making sure they didn't match up.  It's a quick technique that allows you to share some patterned paper that you love but keeps the focus on the awesome kite!

I went a little less heavy on the paint on this one allowing the chipboard to show thru a bit - it gives a little bit of the worn wood feel that a kite might have.
