Handmade paper rocks!

There is no surprise for all my blog friends because they know I love to make my own paper. It's very easy too with a Papermill Kit from Arnold Grummer. Other than the base card stock, the remaining paper is handmade. I love the mottled look of the background paper that I got from splashing in a different colored pulp and the little bird is made out of a multi colored paper with just the tiniest bit of shimmer in it. The different colors comes from blending different colored scraps of paper together, but not over blending...and the shimmer is the result of metallic wrapping paper added to the mix.

Entering this card in
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - No Ordinary paper


I used my new stamp that I just got from Simon Stamps and the little sizzlex dies to cut him out. I just love that I don't have to fussy cut anything! While I am waiting for the accessory stamps I ordered I decided to use a chipboard crown for his little party hat and then penned in the chin strap with my Micron...I think he is just adorable!

And you can save some money when you buy your own paper making kit too!
