Joyous……

Another Basic Grey layout. I loove Ambrosia papers.
What colors? Bright colors with a unique design is superb.
I have so far managed to use every bit of scrap paper I have left of the Ambrosia range.
Lol!! No wasting papers.
Anyway, this layout I made using a sketch from Stucksketches blog.
Sara has lovely sketches everyweek.

I have used BG Ambrosia Clementine Paper as the base
and used Ebony, Marmalade and Tangy pieces as layers.
I have sanded the photo edges to make it stand out.
BG chipboard shapes are fantastic embellishments. I like them.
Here I have used the shapes stickers from Ambrosia range to coordinate with the papers.
Title Alphas are from Granola range. I love the cursive alphas and a nice size for the title too. The corner rubons and the pearls are from Kaisercraft.
Just to give a border, I have drawn straight lines using black crayon pencil.

I like the simplicity of the layout. Don’t you think so?
The title and the photo says it all.
Here are some closeups.

“Friends” ATC cards…..

These are the ATC card set I have made for the first ATC swap I have organized at Debs.
My theme is friends.
I have used Basic Grey Scarlett and Stella Ruby papers.
I have also stamped and embossed a corner stamp and made like a pocket,
into which, a torn piece of paper, a piece of doily
and a tiny photo of two Victorian women symbolising as friends are tucked.
I have also added a flower and a red Kaiser Pearl in the center.
All the pieces of papers are distressed using
Tim Holtz’s distress ink- Brushed Corduroy, Spiced Marmalade and Shabby Shutters.
I used the computer to print the title, cut it out
and distressed the edges using the distress ink.

Here are some closeups.
