Puttin' On The Ritz - Artful Delight

Happy Monday!! I have another layout to share with you that I created with the fabulous July Artful Delight scrapbook kit using some more of the Authentique Delightful papers and mixing in some the the Fancy Pants Time for Spring paper. This one features my daughter Naomi in her tap dancing days oh so long ago.
Can you see the tone-on-tone stamping I did with VersaMark ink on the background cardstock. Its very subtle, but I love the effect. Karen Baker did a tutorial on creating your own backgrounds on the Artful Delight blog here and it inspired me to use the technique on my layout. I played up the circles in my layout, adding a few more at the top and bottom. I also cut a few extra out and covered up the orange circles in the pattern paper to play up the pink more. I covered the buttons with some of the coordinating paper from the kit, misted the flowers, and I had to add some bling flourishes. Here are some close-ups...

  1. Love what you've done with the flowers, and I didn't notice the background at first, but great use of Versamark. (That's the ink pad I've probably owned the longest and rarely use these days).


I love hearing what you think!
