Daffodil Pearl Fusion...


It's Friday and that means it's time to Mashup!

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project with "Dry Embossing".
  2. Or Make a project using the colors " Daffodil Delight, Basic Grey & Basic Black".*
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project with "Dry Embossing & The Color Combo".

This one took me AGES to finish - don't know why because I love these colours together, but just seemed to faff about with it forever until I got to something I liked...

I used this week's Retro Sketch for my layout...

I started with some Howlstooth & Scaringbone dsp and layered a doily cut from Naturals Ivory over some Very Vanilla card and trimmed around, and layering over the dsp. The greeting was created by stamping one of the frame images from the Apothecary Art set with Basic Grey on Very Vanilla and punching out with the extra large oval punch. I then stamped the greeting (from Made for You) over the top. I die-cut some black card with one of the labels framelits and embossed with one the designer frames folders (that's my bit of embossing for the challenge today!).  I layered this framed greeting over a panel I die-cut with one of the Apothecary Accents framelits from Daffodil Delight card and with a piece of silver glimmer paper over the top. The flowers were die-cut from Daffodil Delight card using the flower fusion sizzlit, assembled and spritzed with silver smooch spray, then added some large pearls in the centre, as well as one under the sentiment. Some die-cut Very Vanilla leaves were added to the flowers and I finished things off with some Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon.

Make sure you pop over to the Friday Mashup to check out what the rest of the DT have created!

Thanks for stopping by...
