Hi Colour Blast Lovelies.
Krisy back again today to share a layout that I have been sitting on for a while. I really love this picture and the words and styling had to be just right.
Here is my Layout:
For this layout I went with a piece of patterned paper and then created a base using a thin layer of Colour Blast Heavy White Gesso applied with an old rewards card in a messy fashion in the middle of the page. Over the top I sprayed some Road Base Colour Spray and then using a heart stencil, I added some Colour Paste in Bling.
Once that was dry, I added strips of washi tape across the middle, a paper doily and some thread and my photo. To finish off the layout I added some chipboard pieces. I embossed them with some heavy black embossing powder and while they were still sticky I sprinkled some Colour Embossing Powder in Bling over the top and then heated it again. The Colour Embossing Powder melts into the black but doesn't mix giving a really nice gold fleck finish. It can be subtle like in my Mr & Mrs title or you can add more and build it up like on the heart.
To the heart, when it was just about dry, I used the same roller stamp I stamped on the background and pushed it in to the soft embossing powder. This leaves a nice impression on the embossing powder and it doesn't stick or damage your stamp if you wait until it is almost cool. It's a bit of trial and error but you can always reheat the embossing powder and it goes smooth again so you can have another go.
I hope I have inspired you today to pull out your Colour Embossing Powders and try sprinkling different colours together to create flecks or giving your stamps a work out and adding some embossing to your chipboard.
Make sure you share your creations in the Colour Blast Creative Corner so that we can all be inspired. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
