I love the richness of the colors in all of the papers in the kit!! They are bold, rich, and beautiful!!. Blue and brown remain one of my fave color combos, and throw in a hint of orange and green and it just pops!!
I always order the card stock add on in a kit. You can use it for matting, die cuts and of course FlOWERS!! And you all know how much I love creating flowers. I enhanced the beautiful colors of the card stock using Luminarte Silks Acrylic Glaze. For the orange flowers I used Apricot Nectar. For the blue flowers I used Celadon. The flowers were all die cut from the Sizzix/Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die.
I also love leaf dies of any kind. I have quite the arsenal. But I particularly love the CottageCutz leafy Foliage die. I die cut it using the blue card stock in the add on kit and rubbed on some Viva Colour Metallic rub in Green.
I love the Websters Pages Storytellers alphabet sticker sheet in the kit!!
Of course I have a love for Zva Creative flourishes. I am still hoarding the ones I recieved when I was on the DT!! Love them!! I added the bigger pearls from my own stash to match the lace that came in the kit.
Just a different angle to part of the layout.
And just a couple of closeups of the flowers I created using the card stock from the add on kit. I did add the sweet Prima flowers to the middles. Those were in the kit!! And the larger pearls were from my stash. They are the same ones I added to the Zva flourishes.
