Happy Memories with Indigo Skies

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

Emmy here with my last post for May. As you may know this month I had the pleasure of working with one of Kaisercraft’s most beautiful collections “Indigo Skies” (available at Merly Impressions’ online store) and today I’ve prepared a layout  featuring Clear Texture & Background Stamps and pattern paper from “Indigo Skies”

MI-Happy-memories-web-530To create my background I ruffled the edges of the Misty pattern paper and layered it on top of the Midnight pattern paper. After adhering the layers with Kaisercraft 12mm Double-sided Tape, I stamped the brick pattern using Clear Texture Stamp – Brick Wall with Ink Pad – Black. Once the ink has dried I sprinkled  KaiserMist Spray Ink – Aqua and KaiserMist Spray Ink – Charcoal, and liquid silver ink on top. 
MI-Happy-memories-det-a (1)I matted my picture on a slightly larger piece of Kaisercard Navy Weave Cardstock and adhered it in the middle of the background paper using Mounting Foam Tape.

To decorate my page I stamped the brick pattern on pattern paper from the Paper Pad using embossing ink and then I heat embossed the image with silver embossing powder. MI-Happy-memories-det-a (3)Then I used the Decorative Die – Texture Woven with Kaisercard Navy Weave Cardstock to create another layer of embellishments. For the flower cluster I used Paper Blooms – Iceberg, Mini Paper Blooms – Coconut, blue hemp (Mixed Hemp Cord – Ocean) and die cut foliage (Decorative Die – Mini Foliage), as well as pre-cut embellishments from the Collectables pack and the Sticker Sheet.MI-Happy-memories-det-b (2) MI-Happy-memories-det-c (2) MI-Happy-memories-det-a (4)For my title I used a die cut word form the Collectables pack and a sticker from the Sticker Sheet.MI-Happy-memories-det-b (4)Then I fussy cut the butterflies from the Chambray pattern paper and the foil paper from the Paper Pad, embellished them with Rhinestones – Silver and adhered them to my background paper using Mounting Foam TapeMI-Happy-memories-det-b (3)As a final touch I sprinkled KaiserMist Spray Ink – White in top of all layers, while covering my picture with a piece of paper.MI-Happy-memories-det-c (1) MI-Happy-memories-det-b (1)I hope I managed to inspire you today!
