Guest Designer Krisy creates .......

Hi Everyone,
Krisy back with another Guest Designer Layout.

For this layout I wanted to use up some Project Life cards.  I have discovered I am NOT a project lifer.  It is not creative enough for me but I have heaps of cards that are really nice and I want to use them.  So, I set about using these as a base for my layout. I cut them up and used them as paper.

Once I was happy with my layout I added some Imaginarium Designs Chipboard to "pretty" it all up.  I embossed all the chipboard a few times to create a nice bold glossy coverage.
I used my Colour Blast Embossing powder in Leather and Bling.
The colours worked well with the colours of my cards and they blend really nicely together.

To get the two toned effect, I just added a sprinkle of a second colour while the first was still sticky and then heated it. The Colour Blast embossing powder blend and melt nicely together without going mucky. Plus you don't need to prep your chipboard in any way.  The colour goes on vibrantly and doesn't absorb into it in any way.

To get the most out of my Chipboard, I used only one butterfly
but cut it in half to use it on two areas of the layout.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day
