Im here today sharing a LO I made over the last couple of days. I have used predominately Shimelle Laine goodies - I just love her 1st 2 ranges with American Crafts!!
I flipped through my stack of photos to scrap and came across this one of hubby and I pre-wedding.
I started with some texture paste from Dusty Attic and a mini stencil from Heidi Swapp on some watercolour paper. Then 2 Heidi Swapp colour shine colours (sweet cherry and coral) were used with water and I pretty much applied them the same way I would water colour paints behind where the photo was going and the bottom left corner. Some stamping using a clear stamp from Heidi Swapp and some roller date stamps with black archival ink. I added some gold thread behind all the paper layers, stuck them down and then did my sprinkles in black, gold, sweet cherry and gold colour shines.
Next I went with some paper layers from the 1st Shimelle collection (the pink/coral/cream diagonal stripe, the cream/black dot, the other cream/pink/coral paper is actually the paper with all the numbers on it, the green map print and some of the filmstrip paper) and then I pulled a couple of scraps from my scrap box - a floral from Maggie Holmes Open Book and and another that I have no idea of brand or anything!! Oh and the background woodgrain paper that is also part of the layers is from Bella and I picked it up from Spotlight.
I heat embossed my title using a Heidi Swapp stamp and gold embossing powder - my photo did have a little reaction but not enough to stop me using it! You can see it in the close ups!
The 2 is fussy cut from the numbers paper and all the flowers and the tab are from the Shimelle sticker book :)
You can see above where my photo bubbled a little!!
So, thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!!
