April Club Q Inspiration

Happy Tuesday crafty friends! I'm up today hosting the Quick Quotes blog.

I have a page to share with you that was created with the April Club Q kit. Did you know that our Club Q members get the very newest papers to work with? It's true! These kits featured a new paper collection called "North Woods". The colors are so rich and beautiful!

I was inspired to use a photo that I had taken with my friend who introduced me to scrapbooking. We were cropping last fall and they snapped this photo of us. We don't have a lot of photos of us together, and these papers felt perfect for it. I printed a few black and white zoomed areas of the same photo and mixed them in with the one full color image for a focal point.

Technique:  I used some Biscotti PowderPuff Chalk Ink and stamped with a clock face stamp onto my ivory flowers that came with the kit.  A bit of Baja Blue inked over the top of my "Inspiration" script title helped give a bit of a colorful pop.  I also added some aqua bling to dot my "i"'s.  

Here I  used a small scrap piece of the vellum to slip under the window in the scalloped circular "pie" embellishment.  When I started this page, I took the large framed die cut and cut apart the frame from the three circles.  I then layered my photos and the vining over the top of the circular anchor.  I just love the flourishes that were in this months kit!

The relief frame is used vertically and layered on top of the brown patterned paper.  By doing this, I was able to get a totally different look from the elements!  I also love to use my scraps for extra die cuts that I added in such as the leaves, butterflies and the 2 little flowers you see.
