Today I'll post my Urban staff challenge layout and next week I'll show you my CS Sketchy challenge.
I promised myself to use some of my Mexico photos (WITHOUT the teenagers in them!)
|HOLA! and POW...how's that for colour???|
This month's Urban kit has the wonderful new Basic Grey "Kissing Booth" papers, alpha sticker sheet and die cuts package....plus a bunch of other lovely embellishments. I'm usually not a big fan of large floral patterns, but this one I LOVED and knew right away I wanted it to be the background.
Here are some close ups....
|Metal lock and key courtesy of Tim Holtz and Martha Stewart butterfly border punch.|
|Really cute tiny alpha stickers are on the Kissing Booth Alpha sticker sheet.|
|Banners are in the Kissing Booth die cut package and ANOTHER alpha from that sticker sheet!|
|The Prima "Say It In Crystals" have beautiful facets that catch the light. The green ruffle is ribbon tucked behind the paper layer.|
|I created a circle of yellow butterflies with another Martha Stewart punch.|
|I coloured the tulle flower below with alcohol ink and mist.|
Here is what you need....
|Tissue tape, Blending Tool and felt pad, Blending Solution, Snow Cap Mixative and Red Pepper Alcohol Ink|
|The Snow Cap Mixative (white) makes the alcohol ink more opaque. I also used it to change the Red Pepper to Pink Pepper!|
|Start anywhere on your scrap circle and just fold and pleat around the centre.|
|For this flower, I put 2 layers of pleating, to make the flower fluffier (more dimensional).|
So come on over to The Urban Scrapbook (or order online) and pick up your wonderful February kit! You'll also see all the layouts the Design Team has created....so many talented scrapbookers!
And remember....if you can't go to Mexico to see the beautiful flowers, then you can make some at home in your studio!
