Flutter By Butterfly!

Hi there, Rachel here with my project for this month's 'Nature' theme.
I decided to go with a layout this month as I had some photo's that I took in my garden last year and have been waiting for the right moment to scrap them.

I am fortunate enough to have a couple of 12"x12" sheets WOW! Resist Paper. These papers are already embossed and take ink, paint and chalk beautifully. They are available to purchase in mixed patterned 6"x 6" packs on the website. 

I used stripes of  Distress Stains across the paper and then spritzed with water and allowed the colours to blend into each other.  This left me with a rather green sheet of paper so I knocked back the colour by adding Gesso randomly to the centre of the page.
After die cutting the flourishes and the bird cage I coated them in Versamark ink and added Verdigris Embossing Powder, brushing it off in places to reveal the colour beneath.

To finish off I added a die cut fence and butterflies, punched leaves, flowers and a title.

Well that's all from me for this month. 
Why not play along with our Challenge to be in with a chance of winning a selection of  fabulous WOW! Embossing Powders and don't forget to keep popping back to see all the other wonderful projects from our Design Team.

Happy Embossing!
