sassy scrappers - august challenge

Hey there, I've been having a play with some scrapbook challenges this week.  Today I'm sharing one I've done for Sassy Scrappers - they have a fun and bright mood board and I really love recipe challenges.

August  Recipe Challenge
Here's my take on the challenge:
 I turned the big 40 last week and my sister took this picture of me - it was a good excuse to do a fun, girly page!
Most of the products on this page are Heidi Swapp.
Here are a few close-up's:
 For the watercolour background, I've sprayed two colours of Colour Shine = Citron + Pink Rose onto some clear acetate - then I've also spritzed with a small amount of water.  I've placed my white cardstock over the acetate and pressed down to transfer the colour.
I've also used a stamp to create the 'splattered look', using the same technique - dipping the stamp into the Colour Shine.
I've used enamel dots but also made a couple of my own using a 1" circle punch, paper and the clear flair dots - I love doing this as I can co-ordinate to my papers.
I've also used black thickers and the 'fabulous' word is Kaisercraft die-cut.

Loved putting this page together - I hope to be back soon to share some more scrappy goodness ♥
