Scrap the Boys June challenge

The challenge this month at Scrap the Boys is to use  the sketch to inspire you.

This is my take:

I kept pretty much to the sketch replacing one of the photos with a journal card. I used Kaisercraft Off the Wall pp and embellishments. I created the background by painting some gesso. Then used a Crafters Workshop stencil and some Viva Decor Ferro graphite. I also used a Kaisercraft stamp and Distress Ink and a Prima stamp and Viva Decor white stamp paint. Lastly I embossed some silver blots and flicked some inks around the page.

Here are some close ups. A Charms Creations Super Star layered over some of the die cut star paper that came with the range.

I embossed some silver blots onto nude chipboard letters to look like splashes of water.

Here is the sketch:

D-Lish Scraps Inspiration Board June 2015

Hi, it's a while since I blogged but I have been scrapping. Here is my take on the June Inspiration Board over at D-Lish Scraps. I love the colours of this board

And here is my take:

Obviously I was inspired by the colours. I also used a cardstock film strip behind my photo and lvoed the chevrons. I used the Kaisercraft collection Shine Bright, a Charms Creations Heavenly Heart with Butterfly and lots of D-Lish goodies - the sequin bow, the doiley, the flair, the wire around shine bright and the Scrap FX stamp. I created my background using up some v old Making Memories alpha rubons. These were probably nearly 10 years old but they still worked fine!

Here are a couple of close ups:

I was inspired by the blue and gold and the dots.
I decided to make something a bit different this month - a box. 
I made my box from black cardstock. I cut 2 pieces - 15cm x 18cm (top) and 17cm x 20cm (Bottom). Then scored 3 cm from each edge on the top panel and 4cm from each edge on the bottom panel.  Folded along the score lines and cut one slit in each corner. I then decorated my lid before assembling the box.
For the decoration I used my Bo Bunny Love stencil and an assortment of texture pastes. The blue butterfly is created using Imagine Crafts Creative Medium Iridescent Blue. The paste looks white but when you place it on black cardstock it dries this lovely blue. I used the Bo Bunny Pearl Pen to create the dots around the edge.

A couple of close ups:

Hope this inspires you to have a go at the challenge.
