Cards and a Scrapbook Page - With Karyn!

Hi Imaginarium Designs lovelies!!

It's Karyn here today sharing some cards and a scrapbook page - all made using lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard.

Firstly I have some cards to share with you. I was inspired by the backgrounds made by the lovely Kate Crane aka "The Kathryn Wheel". I was inspired to make a card because it was Rachael's birthday the next day :)

I started by painting on some paints onto my card fronts - being careful to keep each colour separate. I let it dry then repeated 2 more times (for depth and interest).
Then I used some different background stamps and stamped over the yellow paint with yellow ink and the teal paint with teal ink. Then I used different sized bottle caps and stamped (using white and black paint) randomly across the card. When it was dry I added some squirts of black paint then left to dry completely (took about an hour). 
Then I got my chipboard and painted parts and left others raw. 
Here is the finished product. This first card is the one I gave Rachael for her birthday. 
This next card is a more masculine variation.

Next I have a scrapbook page to share with you.

This layout was made in celebration of my parents 50th wedding anniversary. I've chosen a gold theme because that is the traditional gift for 50 years!! I've included photos from their wedding day as well as a photo taken on their wedding anniversary. 
I started by using a stencil and gold texture paste (Heidi Swapp) onto some white cardstock then let this dry overnight. Then I layered lots of different velum patterned with gold as a mat for my photos
I sprayed my chipboard with Heidi Swapp gold ColorShine.  
Finally I added some white flowers - simple yet elegant!
