beauty

Hey, it's mid-week already - hope yours is going along nicely ☺  I wanted to share with you the page that I created for the readers challenge at Aussie Scrap Source.  The challenge was to use a 'resist' technique so here's what I came up with:
 ... any excuse to create a girlie LO ... - I knew straight-away I wanted to do 'emboss resist' and use some of my pretty stamps.  I picked out this gorgeous pattern paper from Prima and added pretty flowers, chipboard and some other cute embellishments.  Here are some close-up's:
 ... the clustering of flowers from Kaisercraft and Prima ... have also added in a little glass bottle filled with little seed pearls ...
 ... my emboss resist - I've stamped the images with embossing ink, then layered with white embossing powder and then heat set it.  Once dry, I've misted over with October Afternoon ink and stamped with a script stamp in blue ink.
 ... some more of the embossing and stamping ...
... this quote is a Kaisercraft rub-on - I have a few sheets and love adding these to my pages ... and I think it fits the picture of my niece perfectly ☺

Today I found out that my page was featured over at Aussie Scrap Source - pretty excited about that ♥☺♥ - I'm looking forward to the next challenge which was just released today - check it out - it's fun if you love mixed media ☺

Chantelle the way you have achieved such gentle depth in the background is lovely. This then adds such detail for the rest of your elements on your very pretty page.
