Cheers, by Amanda Hartmann


Hello Bee Arty fans!

Happy Saturday! Today I share a page of my husband, and of course the best Bee Arty range to use is... King of the Cave! Combined with some embossed chipboard (like... have you seen these awesome and amazing embossing powder packs?) - and this page was simple but effective!

And here is my full page:

I layered a variety of papers from the King of the Cave collection, with some black cardstock. The papers used include: Game on and Deal.

For the title, I found old chipboard letters and heat embossed them with embossing powders from these packs. I used Pine (the green) and Jet Black. Give old chipboard letters new life with this technique!

The final finishing touch was some splatters. To create my splatters, I mixed a small amount of water with a small amount of Colour Mica Powder. I used Sienna and Dusty Charcoal.

Here are some more close ups and some extra tips!

Get some white muslin to wipe up left over colour from your messy mat. After I had done splatters in Dusty Charcoal and Sienna, there was left over colour on my mat. I mopped it up with some muslin. You can see that the muslin then becames an awesome accent on the page (and usually a perfect colour match too).

I love how the Mica powder splatters hold their shape and sit on top of the page. Makes for perfect splatters! 

I also used a white paint pen to doodle around the edge of my embossed black title to make it pop!

When layering papers of similar tones, distressing the paper edges and mounting the different papers on contrasting cardstock (I used black), can really add definition to your layers.

So I guess it is cheers from me and my hubby!

Thanks for looking today!
