Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend, I thought I would do a quick share before I put my feet up for the evening. I have spent the past few days looking for clothes for my sons formal and I can happily report I have succeeded...
I even saved, didn't think that was going to be possible.
I combined a challenges with my Paper Temptress Design Team work this week. I stumbled on this site called ScrapFriends a little while ago but hadn't had the chance to play along. I popped in a few days ago and spotted this sketch and couldn't possibly pass up the opportunity of giving it ago.
If you don't like Sketches check them out anyway, I love the fresh feel to the site and they also have a colour challenge and some cool tutorials.
I coloured some textured paste and used it through the centre here I have then stamped with several different stamps and have then used some Websters and Prima papers.
After cutting some of the pattern from the pink Le Romantique Hambly transparency I made a frame for the photo. I also stamped and cutout the butterfly's using the scraps, along with die cutting the number 18.
Some close ups shows how I have compiled die cuts, stamps, flowers and chipboard, the chipboard here has been given a puffy texture that I inked after with some black ink.
In this close up you can see how I have a white bag popped behind my photo for hidden journalling. I also stamped "Every Day" on the negative left after you've removed your stickers. Normally this would be thrown in the bin, instead I sanded it back a little, stamped the words and hey presto I have a sticker, I love how at the bottom of the words I got this cool pattern left behind from the outline of the sticker that was removed. [Well I hope that made sense it did in my head] lol.
