close up of my stamped flowers, inked and curled to pop off the page....
I started with Cosmo Cricket 12x12 paper (I had in my stash), inked the edges with CTMH Chocolate ink, distressed the edges of photos, taped down and torn the edges to show the white core-also inked the edges in Chocolate...
punched two little holes on each edge of the photo and tired hemp in a knot-to add texture and depth...
took another Cosmo Cricket pattern paper that matched and tore both sides and inked to draw the eye. added a little journal box lined with antique brads, to off set the Metal Letters I used to spell out "Bucket Suds"
This layout still needed more, and plus my girls were in the photos and we love flowers, so I grabbed a couple of stamp sets and inked in many colors, cut out and inked edges, and distressed to give a muted look- and whoo looa handmade flowers to match...
Supplies I used:
Cosmo Cricket paper
Double sided sticky tape
Making Memories Brads
Inks: Chocolate, Sunflower, Garden Green, Barn Red, and Juniper
Stamps: Funky Florals, With Love (old stamp sets that I had on hand)
