February Challenge Inspiration from Emmy

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

Emmy here with a brand new layout created for Merly Impressions’ February “Stamps & Stamping” challenge. As you might know, Kaisercraft produce the most unique and inspirational clear stamps, which you can use on absolutely any type of project.

This month I have the pleasure to create with the stunning “Telegraph Road” collection from Kaisercraft. Add a lot of stamps and here is the result – Hello Sunshine:

To create my layout I used different stamps sets and background stamps:

For my background I used two different pattern papers from the “Telegraph Road” collection – Telegram and Message.

I cut off 1 cm from each side of the Telegram pattern paper, inked and distressed it edges and layered it on top of the Message pattern paper. Then I started altering it with stamps, ink and paint.

First, I marked where my picture will be and then I added a light green pastel around it. After the fixative was dry, I added alphabet pattern using Tim Holtz “Cargo” layering stencil and  “Old Paper” distress ink pad.

Then I stamped the “Grunge” background pattern with a brown ink and the “Honeycomb” background pattern with a black ink. Finally I added the “Bubble wrap” background pattern with Kaisercolour paint “Pistachio”.

When all the layers were dry, I started assembling my design. I used the Collectables pack and the 6.5 x 6.5 inch Paper Pad to create my embellishments.

I used the “Telegraph Road” clear stamps set to stamp the Hello Sunshine sentiment of a few places on my page.

For the black birds and butterflies I used the “Hummingbird” clear stamp set…

and the “Blae & Ivy” stamp set for the foliage.
