Dusty Attic Sketch Challenge and Something Tattered Stamps

On this layout I have combined beautiful papers and embellishments left over from the past 3 months of amazing C'est Magnifique kits, and then I added lots of gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard, plus decorated even further using beautiful Something Tattered stamps.

Here is a picture of my wedding. Pink is truly my favourite colour to scrap with! The beautiful papers and embellishments I had left over from several C'est Magnifique kits worked so perfectly together.

Here is a close-up. I used Dusty Attic paints (dusty pink and navajo white) on the chipboard, stamped the doily and the hanging sign with the Something Tattered "Mars" French stamp and I even used that stamp set to make/fussy cut butterflies. On the hanging sign I inked the scroll and word "love", then topped with DA's clear crackle varnish.

On this close-up you can see I have added bead gel over top of the pink paint on the oval frame. For the flourish, I simply topped with some diamond dust glass glitter. I also made an epoxy charm by stamping a little bird and using my Epiphany crafts tool.

This is the April Dusty Attic sketch. Sketch challenges are such a great way to get your creative mojo flowing. Don't forget to enter the APRIL CHALLENGE for a chance to win some chipboard!

This is the Something Tattered stamp set I used. I used both butterflies, the bird and the word "Mars" word (French for March). This set is so versatile and one of my favourites for sure!
