Today at Papertemptress, I wanted to showcase Papertemptress' line of Ruche papers. These papers come in 10 different colors, and can be purchased by the sheet or in a package of assorted colors. These papers are lovely, textured and supple. You can do so much with them:
Tearing them gives the paper a two tone appearance.
Stamping in a similar color creates a nice subtle background technique.
Die cutting is a breeze.
Inking adds more color.
Misting adds a hint of irridisence.
Using 3 pieces of Ruche Green; Khaki; and Cocoa Crepe, I inked, die cut, embossed and tore the papers.
In this view, you can see the stamping on the backgound. The die cut leaves were inked with yellow, orange, and brown in an attempt to mimic the colors of fall. Then I sprayed some Smooch Spritz on the leaves and heat set them. The green panel was torn allowing the two toned appearance to show.
Using foam adhesives, I layered the leaves for a 3-D effect.
