Beloved My

May I introduce to you our fourth family member – our cat called My! As this picture of DD and My was “without any color” (and the LO is not made for any challenge) I was free to choose whatever colors I wanted. FUN!!! I chose different shades of cerise, terracotta and orange – colors that really clash with each other! I also added a little bit of gold.
I love this cardstock. It’s like kraft in its structure, but much lighter (the color on the picture is correctly reproduced). I added some white gesso on it and splashed some acrylic paint in gold. The embellishments are from Basic Grey’s ‘Out of print’, ‘Indie Bloom’, and Glitz. I used 3D tape between the two photo mats to get an effect and to be able to put the trim in between them.
The hearts are chipboards covered with Glitz paper.
My is written with Mist-A-Bles Chipboard Alphabet that I colored with dark cerise Glimmer mist and orange Distress ink.
Thanks for looking!!! I love all the lovely comments you are leaving on my blog!!! Thank you SO much!!!

  3. Jag har inte kunnat kommentera bloggar på över en vecka men nu ska här tittas och kommenteras på dina fina alster! Och tack, snälla, för alla gulliga kommentarer du lämnar hos mig! Det uppskattas!!! *kramar om*

    Mysig bild på din dotter och katten! Du har som vanligt komponerat ihop en fin layout med intressanta detaljer att titta på. Gillar speciellt hur bandet går bakom kortet och gesson & akrylfärgsstänket. Tror nog att jag måste köpa och pröva på gesso, har sett det en hel del i dina LO's och gillar det. :)

  4. What a sweet layout! Beautiful photo and I just love that banner!


Thanks for leaving a comment! It really makes my day!!!
