Wonderful by Suzy Loudon

Hi, I'm back again with the opportunity to share another page. 
This time I was in the mood to mix my own colours!!

I mixed Lipstick, Singin' The Blues & Dusty Charcoal Pastes together to get a Plum like colour.

I applied it through my stencil & allowed it to dry. 
Mixing the colours did not take away the lovely shimmer that Colour Blast is known for.

While my page was drying I used some of my remaining mixed paste to make a spray. A little water with the paste in a small spray bottle (a really good shake) & I have a co-ordinating Spray.

Now if you do what I did & forget to wash your stencil & the paste has dried all over it... I get a container, add some dishwashing liquid, and soak my stencil. Using a soft brush your stencil is like new once again.

While everything was drying I matted my photo with papers. Here's a pic of my paper layering before it got covered in flowers.

I then wanted to emboss my chipboard. I thought that Singin' The Blues would be too bright so I mixed it with a little Dusty Charcoal.

I couldn't find my white ink pad so I painted the chipboard with a thin coat of Gesso before applying the embossing powder. It was a little splotchy where it didn't take so I did a second coat using my emboss dauber. 

 I embossed my # Wonderful chipboard with a coating of Dusty Charcoal Embossing Powder.

I added a few personal touches - flowers, muslin, pearls and my page was done.

Hope you've enjoyed and feel inspired to go create too. 
See you next time.
