The fantastic colours of the new Distress Oxides made this layout and everyone really enjoyed the stamping and colouring.
The letters were also coloured using the ink pads as were the butterflies and the simple white paper flowers finished the circle nicely.
I did try using white cardstock for the journaling however the black worked much better and helped tone down the busy background.
In this next picture you can see where I dropped one of the inked stamps which is where I positioned the white flowers. Just to show how accidents don't have to spoil the final effect.
The stamping in the middle was done using the largest stamps first and then gradually filling in the gaps with the flowers getting smaller and smaller.
Layout two coming soon. Please leave a comment if you have the time. It's nice to know there is someone out there watching xxx
