Kissing Cousins!

Hello Friends!

Just a quick post tonight!  I have not had a lot of time to get work done in my craft room.  This is a page out of the book I made for my dad for Father's Day.  I took the pictures at my brothers wedding last October.  The two little girls are my nieces.  While we were taking picture of the brides and her bridesmaids, I zoomed in a bit and snapped a few of them sharing sweet kisses.

The background paper is by inque and the others are by MME.  For embellishments, I used a clear stamp to stamp the flourish, some white chipboard inked with Tim Holtz Peeled Paint Distress ink and finally a few butterflies cut out of my Storybook Cricut cartridge.  I used a layout by Audrey Yeager from Creative Keepsakes Mar/Apr 2012 as inspiration for this page.


I cut two of each butterfly and used a random stamp on each to emboss clear powder on them.  After I embossed them, I used Dusty Concord and Peeled Paint Distress ink on top of them.  The embossing powder created a resist to the ink.  I finished them of with some pop dots between the two layers and some pretty pearls.

I hope to be back with some cute cards very soon!  

Thank you for stopping by!
Blessings until next time...
