Making your own patterned paper. Extreme Version

A few short weeks ago,  I had the great idea to make my own patterned paper and I had a lot of fun doing just that.   I loved the bright colors on the daisy flower and could image myself using this method over and over.  That's when the idea stuck! I could just scan my work and then print the paper on card stock when ever I needed it.
The possibilities go on and on

I told Joe about it and asked for any tricks or tips I needed to be successful.  That's when he took the paper to our print shop because he had the better scanner.  I didn't know that he had a secret plan.  He did scan it.  Then he altered the color to make it more Indian Summer or autumnal.

Honestly, he explained the rest tom me, but I'm not sure I understood well at all.  He made a tile of it and then tessellated it.  What ever the tricky and talented process, now he can alter the size and the color.  I may have squealed at this point.  But that is beside the point.  I plan to  play with these again and again.

Of course I had a to make a card right away.  I cut a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 panel from both sizes.  Than I cut both panels in two on a diagonally.  After choosing my favorite combination of the two, I glued them together on my favorite vintage gold paper and added some gold metallic tape to cover the seam.  All that was missing was the sentiment and voila!  I'm a happy stamper.  I put the card panel on some Neenah Kraft paper and make a top folding card.
Rumor modeling my card

I couldn't make the fancy paper without Joe, but I could have scanned it and printed it on card stock.  I bet you can, too.

If you love the fancy paper Joe made like I do, it will be in the store as either a digital download or as card stock--your choice.
