This Lo is a design team project for Heartfelt Creations, and I have the both of best worlds by incorporating my Swirlydoos kits with them. Everything (except ribbon) on the LO is from this months Swirlydoos kit "Simply Irresistible and I used Heartfelt Creations to enhance the LO. I also presented this LO for the round Robin challenge at Swirlydoos. Once a month the girls host a Round Robin where scrappers are placed on to teams of 4. The first scrapper on the team does a layout and is followed weekly by the next person who lifts the first scrapper and so on till the last scrapper is done..It is so cool to see the different variations of the first lo posted. And a lot of fun. I was 1st in my group for November.
I used my favorite leaf stamps on this page. The other leaves are from Heartfelt creations as well. From the same set as the same ones I always use. I stamped them, photocopied the stamped image, enlarged it and voila!! larger leaves... I Glimmer Mist my leaves in 2-3 colors, then enhance with a contrasting but compliment color..One trick is to stamp using Tim Holtz distress ink, so when you mist it with Glimmer mist, it kind of bleeds...I use 2 different greens, then paint Glimmer Mist on a different color or ink a different color.
I used my sewing machine onto some grosgrain ribbon to gather it and use as an embellie.
I shared some butterflies for your collection. I used Stickles and Glimmer
Mist on them
