Some Design Team Inspiration For
2Crafty Chipboard

Hi there paper friends, thanks for calling by.
Today I have a little mixed media layout I created for a design team project
 for 2Crafty Chipboard, & naturally I have used lots of their chippie pieces.

The photos are not wonderful because it is really overcast here & the 
purple & gold were really hard to photograph !!! Sorry.

 2Crafty Products Used....
Fine Word Set #1 - title
Decorative Rod Set #1
Frame Edith
Frame - Shirley
Tiny Henri's Frame
Tahnya's 5" Border

All the chippie frames were made over using some
paints, Finnibair Crackle Paste &Finnibair Wax Pastes.

I was really pleased how they turned out.

Both the the word title & the "Decorative Rod" were heat embossed in gold.

I love the way the gold looks against the purple, so rich & so elegant.

A lovely selection of various flowers & leaves 
all sponged lightly in gold too.

Well that is all from me today, I do hope you liked it.
I will be back soon with more inspiration so stay tuned.

Until next time...

Some Wedding Invitations....
Another One of My Sons is Getting Married!!

Hi there friends, thanks for calling by.

 Today I have a slightly different project to share !!

One of my sons is getting married in January & they asked me to
make their wedding invitations.

How exciting. 💓

2Crafty Chipboard Used...
***  "Handrawn Heart Frames"
***  Custom made Names

So after much thought I came up with this design for the invitations
using the smaller size from the above
2Crafty Chipboard "Handrawn Heart Fames"
& my good friends over at 2Crafty Chipboard also custom made
the "Beau & Emma" names for me too. 💓

I heat embossed the chipboard in a Ranger "Gold Tinsel" embossing powder.
& I was really happy how they turned out.

The flowers are brushed with a beautiful "mother of pearl" finish too
but unfortunately that doesn't show up in the photos!!

I hope you like my project today & maybe draw a little inspiration from it.
Chipboard really is sooo versatile.

Until next time...
