"Cute", by Amanda H

Hello Colour Blast fans!

Lately, I have started so many pages with white or black cardstock. Today I wanted to do something different so I created a page with patterned paper to match my photo. Colour Blast can still work with patterned papers!

Here is a sneak peek of my page.

Here are the steps I took created this page:

I decided to use Washi tape to mask some stripes on my page. I put some Washi down behind the space I planned to place the photo. 
Once the Washi tape was done, I painted some Colour Artist Inks (in Soot) between the washi to create stripes.

One dip of Colour Artist Ink was enough to paint between the Washi.
Then I peeled back the Washi tape to reveal the Ink stripes.
Next step was to add a layer of Colour Paste. I chose the super sparkly and shiny Snow White. I used the paste through a heart stencil as the next layer.
While my paste was drying, I started on my title. With a wood veneer title, I first painted a white coat of paint using White Heavy Gesso.
Next I embossed the title using Colour Embossing Powder in  Steel.
Using my new Ranger embossing pen, I hand drew some stripes on the wood veneer title.
This created stripes on the title, using Colour Embossing Powder in  Dusty Charcoal.
Back to the background - I added some word stamping.
I decided to add more black and turquoise to my background, so I grabbed Colour Artist Inks (in Soot and Mermaid). I added splatters in these colors.
And I painted Colour Artist Ink (Mermaid) stripes to the background.
Then I got busy adding the photos and embellishments! Once I was finished I decided to add a few finishing touches.
Using the wand of a Colour Shimmer Spray in  Steel, I splattered more colour to the page.
Lastly, I used my new Colour Shimmer Brush Marker, to add some sparkle to a black paper flower.
Here is my final page:
I love the mix of patterned paper and Colour Blast elements used to create the background!

This close up shows the stripes created on the title using Colour Embossing Powders.

Thanks for looking!
