Beautiful with Misty Mountains

Hello,

Karen here with second of my April pages using  Misty Mountains Kaisercraft collection .  I can’t get enough of this range as each and every sheet is so pretty.

BeautifulFor this page I featured the Damask Mini Stencil, Paint Strokes Stamp, Orchid Ink Pad and Ranger Transparent Gloss Texture Paste.

I cut ½ in from the top and one side of the Marbled paper.  I then used the Damask Mini Stencil and Ranger Transparent Gloss Texture Paste in four areas of the paper.  Once this was dried I gave it a light coat of Gesso and wiped over the areas with the texture paste with a baby wipe to reveal the colour of the paper below.  As I thought this worked in the same way as transparent embossing powder but with less faff!

Detail 1Once the Gesso had dried I stamped with the Paint Strokes Stamp and  Orchid Ink Pad across the texture paste areas but in the opposite direction.  I also ‘dabbed’ the ink pad through the stencil in areas.

Detail 2I cut a 5¾ x 7¾ rectangle from a piece of Lilac Weave Cardstock  and adhered the Marbled paper to the centre of the remaining piece.

Detail 4Cut branding strips from two of your papers and the Devine paper to add around the outside of your page.

To complete my page I added two pieces of paper from the Misty Mountain Paper Pad , stuck together and trimmed to 6½ x 5¼, to the piece of Lilac card from  above and then my photo was added to this.  I also cut some of the phrases from the Misty Mountain Paper Pad to add, with some phrases and the word ‘beautiful from the Collectables pack, at the top right and bottom left of my page.

Looking forward to showing you my next project
