Your going to LOVE our Lizzy

Hullo fellow scrappers! Lizzy with you today with some more inspiration for our 

 Isn't it delicious? I created this page, based on the feathers & that gorgeous color palette

I thought you might be interested in how I created some of my background ~ including here we go!!!

STEP 1: Using a mask, CLEAR heat emboss some of the background 

 Step 2: Using your colour choice of ink [NOT archival - either Distress, or Stampin' Up - that sort!], rub over the masked area - I used a bit of cut up sponge: 

Step 3: Once you've worked in the colour to your satisfaction, use a wet wipe to remove the colour from where you have clear embossed: 

This reveals the background cardstock colour nicely!

  Strangely [for me] I felt compelled to write in my journaling at this stage....before anything else. Weird. Oh well......then I thought I'd add some stamped globe images. They turned out.....

 ...TOTALLY YUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Agggggghhhhhhh.......what to do? I didn't want to gesso all over my nice masked areas....sooooo.....I masked over the stamping with some Dimensional paint using a different mask!

  And actually liked it even better!!! PHEW:) Here's some closies of the finished page:

And this:

 Lovely gold embossed REAL feather alongside a chippy one!

You can see the texture here - I've used a spray mist as well:) 

Soooo...have you joined in with our challenge yet? Hope this gets you scrapping!

Cheers ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
