~Scraps of Darkness~ Time

Over at Scraps of Darkness the new kit  is called Envy.  Here are the closeups.

The Mistables was fun to play with I used two TH inks on it.. blue and brown came out nice.

 I found a way to keep the pen secure! 
I used a TH holtz tag and then used some Viva Decor Pearl Pen on the hole. 
Loved the Robin's Nest Rubons and the new Mists.

Bringing some pink to my boy page hee hee

Time for school..7th grade.... linear lines  I enjoyed playing with the parts; the ribbon did get used if you can see it. I loved the Robin's nest's rubons. The bling is so pretty.

I used Tim Holtz paper on the cut from Cricut Cart: PaperLace. Petaloo, KaiserCraft, Lindy Stamp Gang and that homemade pin. I used some Martha Stewart punches as well.

Thanks for looking.
Happy Scrappn!

~Scraps of Darkness~ July Marrakesh Sketch Challenge "U"

Hooray I got my July challenge done! I think the monthly challenges run from like the 15th to the 15th.. for those that are saying hey It's August! LOL

This is another fave pic of my son.. and a rose. The two just go so well together. I'll put my close up first.

In this first close up  you see some embellishments that were in the kit.. and I put a little bling on the flowers from Kaiser Rhinestones "Split Pea". The embellishments were from Creative Imaginations  Marrakesh Paper Embellishments.

I used my good ole Tim Holtz Grungeboard Letters and put some Viva Decor Copper on the letter. I also used the  Coloringz Shimmers Paint  "Mama Sings the blues" along with the TH Distress Ink Black Soot to ink up the letter. Also you can see the Vintage embelli up there and I put more bling in the center. The felt looking fuzzy ribbon type also came in this month's kit.

More close ups of the Creative Imaginations Paper Embellishments with some Kaiser blin in the center. You can also see more of the Vintaj item there.

Now these were two different type of gorgeous flowers.. One set is from Prima Flower and the other is Petaloo. Personally the Petaloo adhered better to the page. Also you can see the frames there.. that I used from my new Cricut Cart.. Fancy Frames. I love it.

Focusing on some of the punch work and see the pretty yellow Prima flower.

The final product.  I also used the TH metal tag there .. a gift from Celina for winning a challenge!  The laser cut chipboard made an awesome frame!

Creative Imaginations Marrakesh Paper and Embellishments
