Creative Scrappers #275

Happy Sunday, scrappy friends!  It's time yet again for another amazing reveal over at Creative Scrappers!  I tell you, I just can't get enough of these sketches.  I'm always so inspired by them, and I always love what I created based on them.  Check out the latest one!

Here's what I came up with.  I used goodies from the July Kit from Hip Kit Club.  I started with some white cardstock.  I used the Heidi Swapp Color Shine and the Ingvlid Bolme Chalk Ink to create the background.  I used some plastic product packaging to smudge it everywhere.  I just sprayed some of the Color Shine onto the plastic, added a bit of water, and then laid the plastic down onto the cardstock.  It created a messy watercolor effect.  Then, I stamped the chalk ink onto the plastic, added water, and did the same thing.  I added a bit of Mister Huey's Water Coolor color (from my stash) to the blue in the background as well.  VERY fun way to make a messy background :)

I layered some Teresa Collins papers, some vellum and some chipboard elements around my photo.  I just love how it turned out...I really love the colors mixed together.

I just love adding thread to my projects...I love the look and texture it gives.

Lots of layering going on here!  You can't have too many layers...even with chipboard :)  I cut my title on my Cameo and messily (is that a word?!) outlined it in black pen.

A close up of the background paint job...I love that the texture of the cardstock shows through so well...LOVE that so much!  The "Love" border stamp is one I got from Michael's last year in a Valentine's Day stamp set from Recollections.
