February's Calendar page


Back to my comfort zone and sharing with you  the calendar  page I made for February using Graphic 45 papers.


Starting with the base, it  was random stamped with a french script stamp.
The roses were heat embossed, with pink and red powders.
Sorry cannot name these items as they are all very old  stash.
As you can see it is all looking rather pale at this stage and needs a bit of a colour boost. Out with the distress inks and the blending foam, Vintage photo,  Spiced marmalade, a touch of  Brushed corduroy.  I just kept going until I like the result.





The images  and cut outs were  shaded with the same inks, all the additions came from my stash.
