"Not Sure" by Amanda H

Hi Colour Blast fans!
There are so many ways that we can combine Colour Blast products. Today I have layered numerous products and elements for my page. I have gone with orange colour tones (perhaps my theme for May!?) but this time teamed it with neutrals, black and metallic steel colours.
Here is a sneak peek before I show you how I created the page.
First I used Black Heavy Gesso through a stencil on some Kraft cardstock.
Once it was dry, I cut the paper into strips,
And inked the edges of each strip with black ink.
Then I added random painting and splatters on the strips with Colour Artist Ink in Spice.
I planned to cut the strips to random lengths and have them as messy, overlapping layers on the page.
For some extra touches, I decided to do some heat embossing on the strips. I used an embossing pen to randomly add liquid - in and around the circle designs, which I then heat set.
I used Colour Embossing Powder in Steel for this.
I stitched the strips to my background.
I added more circular elements with some stamping, on the strips and on the background.
Then I painted some of the stamped images using Colour Artist Inks in Spice and Bordeaux.
Then I heat embossed a metal embellishment with Steel Colour Embossing Powder.
I added splatters in the Colour Artist Inks and also using a Colour Shimmer Cube in Steel.
I also did some colour matching, by painting some paper flowers in Colour Artist Inks in Spice.
And here is my final page... I have layered some materials and lace under the photo and added a few key embellishments and stickers to finish.

I love embossing metal charms!
Here you can see some of the interest added to the strips by the embossing.

Hope you are getting some scrapbooking done this weekend!
Thanks for looking today!
