BasicGrey Porcelain

I was very unsure of this release from basic grey but I soon realised that by adding a vibrant colour cardstock, the colours of the papers were really enhanced.

I took a piece of vibrant green card and spritzed it with lime green glimmer mist

Next I took the clear scraps acrylic circle and embossed it using my cuttlebug and the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots

I put some white paint on my finger and smeared the paint over the acrylic circle, I also applied paint round the edge of the acrylic circle

I stuck a large flower slightly off centre on the acrylic circle, and added some buttons and pearls

I took the Technique Tuesday - Capture The Moment clear stamp and inked with a brown ink pad.

I stamped the image on to peach bazzill cardstock. I then cut out the image to give me a journalling card. I inked the edges of the card with the same brown ink that I stamped the image with.

I then took a sheet of BasicGrey Porcelain - Bellamy paper, drew three scallops on the reverse of the paper and cut the strip of scallops out.

I cut out a rectangle from the BasicGrey Porcelain - Silver Birch paper and used an EK success corner rounder to round the corners of the rectangle. On the patterned side of the paper I used the scallops that I cut out earlier as a template and drew, in white pen, two scallops.

I took the BasicGrey Porcelain - Rosenthal paper and cut out another rectangle from this paper and I cut along one of the zig zag lines to give me a zig zag edge, I rounded the top two corners of this paper.

I then cut along the scallop line that I drew in earlier and stuck the zig zag paper on to the spotted paper and, using a white pen, drew round the edge of the spotted paper.

I cut another rectangle from the peach cardstock, rounded the corners and then a drew a border round the edge of this card using first the white pen and then on the inside of the white pen a brown pen.

I matted my photo on white bazzill cardstock, then I attached my photo to the scallop that I cut from the BasicGrey Porcelain - Bellamy paper. I didnt stick down the right hand side of the scallop as I wanted to attach an embellishment under the scallop later.

I then cut a thin zig zag from the BasicGrey Porcelain - Rosenthal paper and stuck onto my cardstock

I then took the flower embellishment that I made earlier and attached to my LO, I pushed the acrylic circle under the scallop and then stuck the scallop edge onto the acrylic circle.

I finished my Lo by adding the journalling card, some buttons, rub-ons and the title.

Here is my finished LO
