Hi there..It is me, Lisa again sharing another layout I created for my Guest Design Spot. Who knew that Kraft paper could be so darn beautiful just by adding a little bit of Splash of Color!! Ok I added a whole lot of Splashes of Color!! To start off, I edged punch a 12x12 piece of plain old Kraft card stock. Added a not of soft inking using a mask around the perimeter of the paper. I then used Viva Colour ~ Inka Gold Metallic Rub in Copper and Gold and rubbed around the inside edges all around the page. I did a bit of sewing as well.
I die cut a tag using Sizzix Tag and Bookplate die. I cut 2 pieces. One in Kraft paper the other in thin chipboard. I ran the kraft tag through my machine with a Sizzix Embossing folder. I sewed around the perimeter of the tag. Using the same 2 Inka Gold colors, I lightly rubbed them over the embossed parts of the tag. Then I adhered the embossed tag to the chipboard making it nice and sturdy. I used a cream colored seam binding and colored it with Silks Acrylic Glaze in Nutmeg adding a spray of water to blend it into the ribbon. When the ribbon was dry, I rubbed in some more of the Inka Gold in Copper and Gold to give it a bit of a varigated look. It came out gorgeous.The die cut swirl on the tag was rubbed with Inka Gold in Copper. No primer needed.
I created a Mat for my photo. Using a 1 inch foam brush, I painted the perimeter of white cardstock with Viva Crackle Base Coat For Porous Surfaces. When it was dried I then brushed on Viva Colour Crackle in white. When that was dry and crackles, I rubbed on some Silks Acrylic Glaze in Nutmeg and Apricot Nectar.
Here is just a close up of the embossed tag. I added some tiny dots inbetween the diamonds with a Viva Colour Pearl Pen in Gold. The Blue Fern Studios Butterfly was primed with some white gesso. Then it was painted with Silks Acrylic Glaze in Apricot Necter and Plumaria. Oh the colors are so so beautiful and rich!! It was then topped off with the Viva Colour Pearl Pen in Gold.
Another piece of Blue Fern Studios Chip board was primed and painted the same way with the same colors as the butterfly.
The flowers were die cut from white Mulberry paper. They were painted with Silks Acrylic Glaze in Apricot Nectar, Coral Berry and Plumeria. They were topped with a pearl and surrounded with dots created with Viva Colour Pearl Pen in goal. The leaves were all die cut from Kraft paper and rubbed with Inka Gold in Green/Yellow then lightly kissed with Silks Acrylic Glaze in Olve vine and when dry, rubbed with Inka Gold in Gold and Copper.
