And now, on with the goods!! Here's what I came up with...
I've really been diggin' fabric lately, so I wanted to see how a few of the lovely Memento Luxe inks played with muslin. I just dabbed some of the Rose Bud and Dandelion inks onto a plastic plate, added a touch of water and dropped it on! The colors stayed true and I LOVE the bits of orange that was created where the two mixed.
To jazz up this simple embroidery hoop, I've given it a gentle whitewash with some watered down white paint and stamped it here and there with the Waybill/Invoice Background stamp in StazOn Jet Black ink. I also took a few of the muslin scraps and stamped it with the same stamp. I absolutely love the shabby ribbon look it created!!
To create these pretty vellum butterfly embellies, I stamped the Butterfly Specimens stamp with Memento Luxe ink in Tuxedo Black and then embossed it with Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder. A little more of the Rose Bud and Dandelion ink applied on the back with a Sponge Dauber, and they were ready to stick down!
The chippies were also embossed after I colored them up with the Delicata Golden Glitz ink. While trying to heat them up, a couple of the letters flipped over and a bit of the embossing powder came off. It created this really fun texture---so I went with it!
I gotta say, I'm super in love with this layout!! I guess it doesn't hurt that it's rockin' the face of the cutest little girl I know :-)))
Thanks so much for stoppin' by!!
