Inked Background Layout

Still working on my Christmas card scrapbook. I'm into 2013 with this family so I'm getting closer. The background paper was white with all these snowflakes heat embossed on it. I brought in distress ink color Fired Brick slowly and carefully in order to achieve the darker edges and lighter center. Then I sprayed the paper with water mixed with Perfect Pearls. I know it's two guys and guys don't like sparkle but it's my book and I like sparkle.

The rest of the layout follows a sketch at Stick it down, see below. The polka dot and green word patterned paper is by Die Cuts with a View. The red cardstock in back is by Coredinations and the green paper matted behind the photo is an old journal box from Creative Memories. To finish, the washi tape down the left side is by Darice, the border sticker with snowflakes is by K and Co and the 2013 is cut from my Cricut Art Philospohy cartridge.




Thanks for looking.
