Do Everything With Love with Full Bloom

1

Hello,

Karen here with my first page using Kaisercraft’s Full Bloom collection.

I really love the Flower Bunch mini stencil and really wanted to make a page that showcased how pretty it is.

I started with a piece of Cocoanut Weave cardstock and divided the reverse (smoother side) into six panels measuring 6in tall and 4 in wide.  I then, with the stencil taped into place, spread some texture paste through the top right and left and middle bottom one, making sure I wiped it clean each time.

You can just about see the white on white here.  Once the texture paste had dried I dabbed ink onto a silicone sheet – the colours I used are Petal Pink, Berry, Vine and Avocado.

The next step was to use a fine paint brush and a little water to thin the ink and add to the raised texture paste flowers.  I was thrilled with the result!

I trimmed 1cm from all four sides of my white card and mounted it onto a piece of Full Bloom Undergrowth paper.   Next I cut three peices of paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad measuring 3.5 x 5.5 and a piece of the pink gingham paper measuring 3.5 x 4.5, also from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.

I added the gignham piece, centrally to the centre top panel of my page and using mounting foam dots, added the other three pieces of paper to the centre top and left and right bottom of my page.

chose one of the gorgeous pink and gold phrase cards from the Blooming Foil Paper for my title and placed this centre top of my page. To this I added two doves from the Collectables pack and coloured some leaves and a rose, from the wooden Flourish Pack with Berry and Avocado ink pads to add to the bottom of my panel.

I die cut two flowers using the  Decorative Die Rose Cluster and backed these with off cuts from the 6.5 x 6.5 papers I had used.

Finally I added my photos and used the diecuts and elements from the Collectables pack with a couple of stickers from the sticker sheet to finish my page.

I for one didn’t realise you could use the little ink pads to paint with and this is something I will be utalising more in the future.
