Runner Up by Charmane Koch

Hi Everyone! 

Today I wanted to share with you a layout I created using Pinks - in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness month! I have used Colour Paste in Lipstick, Colour Artist Ink in Cranberry & Colour Embossing Powder Blush.

I decided to use a photo of my Harmony girl with her Runner Up Best & Fairest Trophy from last year for Netball {She received Best & Fairest THIS year, but I haven't printed the photo yet!}

Anyway, I firstly started with a piece of Thick White Cardstock that I have covered in Thick White Gesso using a palette knife. I let this dry naturally.

Before adding Colour Artist Ink to my page I have sprayed water, as I didn't want a really strong background colour. After adding a couple of drops of Ink, I have then sprayed more water and moved the page around to manoeuvre the colour around.

I used a heat gun to dry the Ink.

Next I have used a star stencil and positioned them to go from bottom left corner across to the top right corner of the page. I have used Colour Paste Lipstick and used a heat gun to dry.

I have put together other pink embellishments, positioned my photo and added my title and journalling.

My favourite bit though is added the Colour Embossing Powder Blush to the edge of my layout which I think really finishes it off.

I rubbed Clear Watermark ink pad around the edge of my page doing one corner at a time.

I have then sprinkled a generous amount of the Embossing Powder along the edge - making sure I have a pre-folded piece of paper underneath so that I can pour the excess back into the container...

 Don't want to waste all that!!!

And how awesome does the Embossing look once heated? Love the texture on this!

 Here is the final layout:

Such a fun layout to create & as I said my fave is the Embossing edge! Will be definitely using this technique again!

Thanks for popping by & hope I've inspired you!
