Have you seen the latest and greatest Jot Mood Board for this month yet? If not, you really need to hop on over to the JOT blog asap!! It is a stunner and created by the very lovely Amanda Hall.
I was particularly inspired by the tones of navy, delicate fret work and touches of silver...
products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Bella!; alpha - American Crafts; other - Bella Blvd: clear cuts, stickers; Heidi Swapp: Minc label, silver foil, silver stickers; Greatest View badges/flair; Scraptastic Club cut aparts; Kaisercraft: rub-on doily, transparent leaves; paper doily; Dear Lizzy chipboard ephemera, Maggie Holmes camera embellishment; tools - typewriter, machine stitching, Heidi Swapp Minc.
Do you see that cool background? Believe it or not, that's just a piece of navy cardstock layered with another gorgeous Bella Blvd clear cut on top! Trim both pieces to the same size and then machine stitch together. I love the effect of that woodgrain pattern.
My cluster of embellishments were gathered together if they were transparent or contained the coloured tones of Navy, Grey or Silver. After playing with the layer levels I moved onto my next adventure.. Silver foil and a Minc!
I had an absolute blast playing with my new Heidi Swapp Minc! The label holding my title was silver foiled... nice and easy as my first foray into the world of minc-ing! *grin*
