Loving My Life ~ The Color Room~

Hi there!
It`s Friday and it`s time for my DT work for The Color Room. As I mentioned in previous posts our sponsor this month is Maja Design and we are working with their beautiful products.
Love the palette this week - palette #98. I don`t usually work with these colors but I like them a lot in real life :-)
And this is what I created...
I scrapped this photo of me once but I liked to use it here because of the colors of my dress :-)
And here are a few close-ups.....
  • The hearts were cut with an old die from Provo Craft.

  • The Clock (IDS0017) is a chipboard from Imaginarium Designs
  • The chippie has a layer of Gesso. Then I painted it with Glimmer Glam and once it was dry I sanded it to give more vintage look. I dressed the numbers up with puffy paint.
TIP: Now about the matting of the chippie :-)
  • I used a mask from Prima Marketing. I laid it on a white cardstock and I used Distress Ink to mask.
  • While the mask was still attached on the cardstock I outlined the swirly shapes with a black fine liner.
  • When I was ready I removed the mask and I cut the masked part of the cardstock out.
  • As a final touch I inked the edges.

Hope you enjoyed my post today and you got inspired to play along with us at The Color Room. For more inspiration please cheek this link -------> HERE!
