patterned paper from at least two different manufacturers
inking or stamping
Most of my layouts are basically very simple in design with minimal use of embellishments. Consequently, this was a real challenge to me to include more things in a layout than I normally do. I was working outside my comfort level.
My recipe included:
Patterned paper: The Paper Studio Hot Pink w/white dots and SEI Doodly-doo Girl Bursting Bloomers
Buttons: 3 buttons selected from my stash of vintage buttons
Inking or Stamping: I used a Sassafras Lass stamp and also tried distressing the sentiment paper with blue ink using a small foam paint brush
Flowers: From my stash of silk flowers
Bling: A rhinestone brad in the center of each flower; also I sprinkled small hot fix crystals randomly on the floral paper (unfortunately they don't show up in the picture)
Overall, I am pleased with the layout.
Luck, love and laughter,
