I am sorry to say that I have been quite lazy as of late. Have several projects to video and post, but I have been catching up on my reading instead. Just finished Corpse Suzette. I will be back in the saddle soon. To ease my conscience I am sharing another of my designs for www.CropChocolate.com.
This posed the greatest challenge. I was using the papers that were sent in my kit and wanted to incorporate some of the fibers. After staring at it for a bit, I pulled out my stamps and some ink. I know, shocked aren't you? I cut down this 12x12 piece to create an 8x8 page. These polka dots are on back side of the 5th Avenue Sophia Harlequin paper used on the Green Calendar. The extra bits were used on another project. Waste not want not.
I used a small stamp to create a border around the polka paper. I tried to center each flower over one of the polka dots. Those flowers in the center were my test flowers. I knew the center would be covered by the photo. This gave me an idea of how the ink would react and how much pressure to use to get the look I desired.
The flowers from a glitter kit offered by CropChoc were used to add a border to the right. My own fine pee wee glitters were used on the transfers. I also cut a piece of Bazzill card (leftover from the Greeting Card) to use for my journaling and inked the edges in blue.
This is a photo of the glittered flowers and the quote added to the bottom of the page. It is a Heidi Swapp quote that I cut apart to make it work on my blue strip. My camera catches great detail, but the cut lines are not obvious to the naked eye.
