Inkido 2014 DT Application

Hi everyone! I am here today to share my Design Team application for Inkido Papercrafts Scandinavia. I just am in LOVE with the papers from Inkido and would so love to be considered to join their design team for next year and the chance to use more and more of their products. The papers are divine so if you have not seen them before, be sure to click here to view their website!

The Color Room Palette #162

Hi everyone! I have been so quiet lately I know but this is because I have been so busy with things I am just not allowd to share yet but don’t worry, I can share very very soon. Quickly today I wanted to come in and share the current challenge over at the Color Room. Click here to visit the website and click here to visit the Color Room Facebook page so you can join in the challenge and earn a chance to win some fab prizes.

162

Here is my take on this colour palette. Loved playing with these Her Room colours. So fun and fabulous.

Amy Prior #162

The background was created using white cardstock, modelling paste and a 6×6 Heidi Swapp Mask. I have then dripped Blue Sapphire Glimmer Mists around all the edges and using a straw, I have blewn the blue to create drips in the directions that I wanted them to go, into the centre.

I have then coloured my chipboard sunburst with a couple of different blue shade mists and have sprayed a doily and some A2Z Scraplets Chipboard arrows with Black and Funky Fuschia Dylusions Ink Sprays. The arrows were then given a coat of Glossy Accents to give a nice plasticy shine and I have decorated the chipboard words using Ranger Liquid Enamel Dots which again is a fun enamel plastic look which is very much in trend at the moment.

tn_Awesome&FabulousByAmyPrior_closeup2

The papers that I have used are mainly from the My Minds Eye Chalk Studio Collection although I have also dug into my old Heidi Swapp stash for some Hot  Pink and Blue papers for mounting that striking chalkboard look papers onto.

tn_Awesome&FabulousByAmyPrior_closeup3

The fabulous blue flower was a gift from the awesome Kristal Barnwell from Buttercups & Blossoms. She makes the cutest flowers and this one I altered a little to make the flower a little darker as it was originally a light blue colour. I have also altered a Flourish with a Bling Flower using Funky Fuschia Dylusions Ink Spray and I have added another black FWAB flower also.

Well that is it from me today, hope you come back tomorrow where I have some more inspiration here and over on the A2Z Scraplets blog also.

Until next time, happy scrapping!

Cést Magnifique October Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone! I  hope you are all well. Today I am back to reveal the full layout that I shared last week over on the Flourish with a Bling Blog. This layout was created also using the Cést Magnifique Kits October Sketch Challenge along with the October kit from Cést Magnifique. I just love their kits and they are so fun to receive every month even though I sometimes get impatient waiting for the mail to arrive from the US. LOL it never takes more than 2 weeks but it always seems like years when i know there is pretty stuff on the way. Click here to visit the C’est Magnifique Blog and see the challenge details.

tn_DivaByAmyPrior

The only extras that I have added to this kit for this project are the white lace, Black Crackle Paint, Flourish with a Bling Swirls, A2Z Scraplets Chipboard flower stem and cogs and the Black Satin Seam Binding. Everything else including the fun Christy Tomlinson Mask was in the kit and the addons and they are so fun I think this new doily stencil is my new favourite what do you think?

tn_DivaByAmyPrior_closeup1

Some of the papers strips have been misted with some Dylusions Ink Sprays to add more pops of colour into the 7 Dots Studio papers and the fabulous A2Z Scraplets cogs were sprayed with some Heidi Swapp Black Color Shine while the A2Z Scraplets Flower was hand painted using a tiny paint brush and various shades of Ranger Liquid Pearls. I am seriously loving playing with my liquid pearls they just never get boring!

tn_DivaByAmyPrior_closeup2

The background masking was created by rubbing some fabulous Blue Ink Gold over the doily mask randomly on the edges around the page. I am just loving this super shiny waxy shimmer effect. Love love love.

tn_DivaByAmyPrior_closeup3

My background was also splattered with lots of fabulous Dylusions sprays to tie in the crazy amount of colour that I wanted to add to this layout in flowers etc and I just love how much colour there is colour is definately my friend lately i cannot get enough of it.

tn_DivaByAmyPrior_closeup4

I have also added some doodling around some of the details of the background masked doilies. The Inka Gold is actually a wax based medium so obviously pen markers are not their best friends so I had to be careful to doodle around the Inka Gold and not over it otherwise I would have just ruined my favourite Project Life pens.

tn_DivaByAmyPrior_closeup5
