Hi everyone, I'm loving the new Hearts Ease paper, the colours are just gorgeous. I decided to make a gift tag, which could double as a bookmark, so kept the layers relatively flat.
I cut a tag from Core'dinations cardstock and embossed it using Lilliputana Curtain embossing folder.
Pattern match to create a continuous pattern, but only roll part way into the embossing machine, and then out the same way so you don't get a "flat spot" where the edge of the embossing folder was.
Corner punch the corners, and sand the embossed pattern using a sanding block.
Cut Amaryllis Laced Frame and two corners from Hearts Ease paper, and Amaryllis Keepsake Kandy from white cardstock.
Ink and then spray mist towards the centre of the tag. Adhere die-cuts as shown.
Cut another Laced Frame from black cardstock, and the centre Megan's Magic die from Hearts Ease paper and ink edges.
Layer using 3D Foam Strips.
Add a sentiment using Hearts Ease Embellishments, and a few Couture Creations flowers which I sprayed and inked.

Today I'd like to share my process for creating this fun mixed media layout.
Create texture using modeling or texture paste through a stencil, and allow to dry.
Spray Lindy's Stamp Gang Silent Night Silver, Ocean Breeze Blue, and Clam Bake Beige, and mist lightly with some water to allow it to run and blend.
Repeat the process using Frenchy's Pink Pouf and Hydrangea Blue
Allow to dry, then add splatters of each colour. Highlight a few places using Bachelor Button Blue for extra depth.
Emboss chipboard using Madonna Robe Blue Gold and Hyacinthe Blue Jade.
Add some beads, sequins, muslin, and thread for interest
Thanks for vising the blog today.

Hi everyone, I've recently returned from teaching on a Scrapbooking Cruise to the South Pacific. I had a fantastic time and met lots of lovely crafters. We were presented with a challenge before we embarked, which was to decorate a mask for our Farewell Masquerade Party. I thought I'd share my creation using the May Challenge colours as my inspiration.
I added some texture using gel medium through a stencil and allowed it to dry.
I then added patches of Ocean Breeze Blue.
The butterfly diecut was embossed using Hollyhock Scarlet Plum.
