I found a few different sheets of card stock in my desired colors and got out my stamps and ink pads. I used stamps on several of the papers and on a few I broke out my Cuttlebug and the embossing folders and embossed a few and then inked the raised portions of the paper. It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed getting to play around and create my own design. Once I was done I moved on to a card.
Once again I used plain cardstock for all of this and added stamping. The blue and brown swirly paper actually started as white cardstock. I saturated it in turquoise Glimmer Mist and then put down a glimmer screen and layered on tattered leather Glimmer Mist. I really love the effect it gave.
