This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink is a colour challenge.
At first I was a little hesitant about the colour choices...none of my favourite Designer Series Papers came in these colours so I was a little stumped until I discovered a sheet of Bella Bleu paper that had a soft yellow swirl on it. When I sponged this paper with More Mustard Ink I was delighted with the effect it produced and that became the pleated feature of my layout.
Here are some close ups:
For the script flowers, I stamped onto the Bella Bleu DSP with the En Francais Background stamp in Basic Gray ink. I then punched out scalloped circles and scrunched them before adding to my layout. I was inspired by the vintage book paper I have seen used elsewhere but I wanted a more scrapbook friendly version.
The double stitched ribbon makes it so easy to create a ruffled look on your page. I have just pulled the stitching tight and secured at the back of the ribbon.
Here is a closeup of the sponged DSP. I was so happy with how this looked. I can't wait to try it out again on some of my least favourite papers.
Photo credits for the gorgeous photo of my niece Tammisha go to my sister-in-law Shelley Wendt. She takes the most amazing photos.
