Cuttlebug Challenge #67

This week the Be Inspired challenge at Cuttlebug Challenge Blog is to make ATC cards with hearts/flowers . . . but since I'm the scrapbooker of the bunch . . . I made a layout with lots of hearts. :)

I actually changed my layout a little bit, from the one I submitted for the blog. Do you ever do that?! Stare at your page a bit more and decide to make a few changes? :) Well, that's what I did on this one. I trimmed my entire page and mounted it onto cream cardstock to give it a more solid, contained feel . . . and then I darkened my embossed image with some Shimmerz Spritz.



On this page, I used the Heart Blocks embossing folder to create a subtle background piece to balance out my single photograph. I used Bed Of Roses Spritz by Shimmerz Paints to spray my embossing folder (NOT the paper) before embossing. I love the way the Spritz pooled into the deeper areas of the image creating a variety of interesting shades of pink.



Page created using the Noel Mignon OBJECT OF MY AFFECTION kit.

Thanks so much for coming by!
I hope you'll stop by the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog to see the other takes on this week's challenge!

Really nice LO. I've seen others glimmer mist or paint their cuttlebug folders...it leaves a beautiful effect, but I haven't tried it myself yet...I think I will. Just lovely!!
