Today it is my turn to post on the Inkido blog.
This layout was also made for Yasmines challenge on the Inkido blog this month.
The idea is to use a mask/stencil as well as stamping on your project
I used a mix of older and newer collections for this page.
I do like me some fussy cutting and the 'Sunshine' papers have an abundance of pretty roses to cut out and use as decorations.
I thought the beautiful Ingvild Bolme resin park bench by Prima ( Thanks sweet Eila!! ) would be a good match for the photo and evoke feelings of sitting in a beautiful rose garden.
I used a large number of lovely Inkido blooms on this lo and also some red half pearls. I find they are much more versatile than I understood from the beginning. They can be decorations in their own right and not just added a pearl here or there to adorn some other embellishment.
For the challenge I chose a small brick mask and a swirl stamp from the extensive Inkido collection. They have so many stamps that you will find one for any occasion.
Some details of my paper distressing and stitched borders.
I added a couple of safety pins as well as a slightly humorous touch.
Finally the title is made using a slightly older Prima textile alphabet, I just love that style and size.
I actually had to be a little extra creative to change the letters to form my word as some letters were missing. But as fellow creative people you know that anything that works is fine! :)
I hope you enjoyed my page and thanks for any messages you may leave me!
Be sure to visit Inkido to check out the challenge.
