Wild & Free Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Today, the Glitz Digital Team is having a blog hop!

We're showing projects using the new Wild and Free collection. Here's the line-up for today's hop:

Jocelyn Olson <--You are here!

Okay, if you haven't seen the Wild & Free collection yet, you *need* to check it out. Seriously. The kit has so many great elements and papers--there are tons of possibilities!

I'm sharing two hybrid cards. First up:

For this CAS card, I simply resized the fab Wild & Free patterned paper for the background. I recolored the background of the "wander" sentiment from Wild & Free Element Pack 1 to layer on the white background. There are several sentiment in the kit that would work well for this same design. :)

Here's a close-up:

*sigh* Isn't that paper gorgeous?

For my next card, I did more layering:

The "LOVE" journaling card started out white with an ombre (top right in the picture below):

First, I printed the pink and yellow Wild and Free paper. Then, I recolored the journaling card black and white in Photoshop to increase the contrast. Finally, I traced the image on my Cameo and die-cut it.

For the layering, I added some papers from the collection and hand-cut tissue paper for the edge. I also added a little splatter in the background with some mists. Here's a close-up:
