Late Valentine

It's all about creating backgrounds again!

This time, I used the same old resist technique but did a little twist to it. I used MT tape to create a border. And instead of using bright distress inks, I used something darker, pumice stone. This is the next colour that is a must have. It's in between a grey and black. When used for stamping, creates a very dreamy and watercolour effect.

The making memories embellishment pack is a good buy. Every design comes in 2 each and there are more than 30 pieces in a pack. If you're into some Victorian style, this is a good investment.

For this layout, I tried my best at layering. Had inspiration from Betty, to create layout not based on photos first. Tried layering with different media. So as you can see, flowers, plastic rulers, lace, crystals. And of course, a photo that is missing. This layout is actually a gift for someone where hopefully he is able to find that someone special to give to.

The thing I like best, the birdcage! So happen to be browsing fb and saw something similar. And of course, did my usual style of copying. Or to put it in a nicer way, modifying.

Materials Used: Making Memories Valentine's pack, 7 Gypsies School Ruler, Prima flowers, Hero Arts background stamp, Distress Inks (Black Soot, Pumice Stone, Old paper), Sickles, Martha Stewart Punches, Doily paper.
