The Color Room & Imaginarium Designs

Hi there!
This week`s palette at The Color Room is up - Palette #93. It`s an exciting month for  us, the DT girls, because we were given new papers to play with.....beautiful papers from Meg`s Garden. This is my first time working with this Australian brand and I`m absolutely positive :-)


This is my take on this gorgeous palette....
  • The layout was based as usually on white card stock.
  • I misted, masked, stamped and hand-stitched on the background.
  • And I did lots of fussy cutting. The pattern paper is ideal for fussy cutting which I love to do ;-)
  • The edges of my cut-outs were once again finished with Copic Markers.
  • For the dimension I used my embossing tool. 
TIP: While embossing try to do it both sides of the cut-outs to give more texture. And what`s more important is to emboss your cut outs in different directions - I`ll be preparing a video showing how I do it. What I mean by different directions is to try to achieve the effect that your leaves for example are pointing up and your flowers downwards. 
  • The title "Princess" is chipboard from "Imaginarium Designs".
  • For the first time I didn`t use Gesso as a starting point. 
  • I directly inked the word with Color Box ink (Old Rose), added embossing powder and used heat gun to melt it. 

And a few more close-ups.....

Can`t wait to see your entry at The Color Room Photo Wall :-)

Have a great day!

    Het papier ziet er zo mooi uit. Ik heb even gekeken op hun site, de rest is ook niet mis!
    Doordat je de layout zo licht hebt gehouden, komen de kleuren zo mooi naar boven.
    En de geborduurde letters zijn fantastisch! :)
