This is a sneak peek of what we will be creating at our February Open Scrapbook Club. I just love how the background turned out! I sponged Platinum Shimmer paint onto the large floral stamp in the Elements of Style set and stamped it randomly onto 12×12 inch sheets of Basic Black. It’s just gorgeous IRL!! It wasn’t messy at all and the paint is so quick drying that within a few minutes of stamping, I was already assembling my other elements onto the background!
Presto Patterns Specialty paper borders the top and bottom of these pages. I used a Rose Red ink pad directly on the paper and then sponged in any light areas. A quick buffing with a tissue and it was ready to go. The Tasteful Trim Die provided the Rose Red scallops and two sizes of black grosgrain ribbon completes the look.
The is the flower accent I created with the Blossom Party Die. I used card stock vellum for the bottom layer. The brad is one of those sparkling Glimmer brads that you can find in our Occasions Mini.
These sweet little flowers are from that same Blossom Party Die. I used the Circle Punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes pack to help accentuate the pearls.
I hope you enjoyed this little preview of what we will be doing at our Scrapbook Club on February 17. We create two 12×12 double page layouts (four pages in all).
