Also today I am showing you a layout I created based on the sketch challenge over at Sassy Scrappers!
This is a gorgeous sketch and I used the Prima Natures Garden range of papers to create this layout.
 

I used one of the the stunning laces available in the shop but it didn't suit my page ... so here are the steps I used to make it fit!

 

Using Distress Stain Daubers, I added some Vintage Photo and Spun Sugar





Once inked, I rinsed it gently under water to wash off the excess and then dried it off!
All done!

To create the title, I inked the wood Kaiser word in black chalk ink....


Added some Stampendous Embossing Ink ....

 

 Then sprinkled it with Stampendous Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel ... This stuff ROCKS!

The finish on this is brilliant!

Good Luck and Have fun hopping..
Natalie
