Emmy here with a brand new creation to share. As you already know this month I have the pleasure to design with Kaisercraft’s Antique Bazaar collection (available at Merly Impressions online store). For my previous projects I used vintage photos from my grandmonther, but this time I decided to create a page for our little family. I just couldn’t miss the opportunity to use these amazing family quotes! So, here it is –
For my background I used Kaisercard Coconut Wave cardstock, which I altered with Tim Holtz layering stencils Clockwork and Bubble, and Mini Distress Ink Pads – Tumbled Glass and Tea Dye. When I was satisfied with the result, I added a see-through layer in the middle using KaiserMist Spray Ink Turquoise (TIP! If you open the cap of the bottle, you can use the mist as paint and apply it with a brush to your project – the easiest way to get a light coloured layer with shimmer). When the ink has dried I stamped the black pattern using Distress clear stamp and Black ink pad.
To create the layers under my picture I used the Mini Paper Pad matching the Antique Bazaar collection. I shaped the edges with an edge punch and added the sticker border (12″ Sticker Sheet) to mix the colours a bit.
For the flower cluster I used Kasercraft Paper Blooms Sage and Mini Paper Blooms Coconut (TIP! Dip your fingertips in black ink and smudge it gently onto the white flowers.). I surrounded the flowers with die cut swirls and leaves (Decorative Die Foliage), made with Kaisercard Black Premium Cardstock and pattern paper form the Mini Paper Pad. As a finishing touch I added a few Rhinestones Black.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post!
