Cards for my stash featuring the same background paper with different focal elements

 I had these card and background papers left over from a card kit idea for my last class that did not pan out so I used them for making cards for my stash.   The green lacy background is a digital image which I laser printed onto white paper.  I mounted them to coordinating green cardstock and went looking for focal elements that would work with them.  I found this cute little girl (eather Ellis) which was printed on vellum.  I coloured it very carefully with watercolour from the back and mounted it to a white piece of cardstock just slightly larger to give it a bit of a frame and attached them together using four tiny silver brads.  I mounted it to my card front using 3D foam tape.  For the next one, I found this laser printed image of the elephants in my stash (Pixabay - La Petite Femme). I layered it onto gray and mounted it to my card front with 3D foam tape.

 For my third card, I used this little birdie image (Birdie Brown) which I watercoloured to coordinate with my chosen elements.  I adhered the image to the peach layer, added a short piece of white ribbon and mounted my layered greeting over it.  The greeting is laser printed, oval punched and then mounted to a scallop oval punchie (SU) in the same green cardstock as the card.  I mounted this large focal element to my card front using 3D foam tape.
These few card went together fairly quickly as I had most of the elements in my stash!!
