It's my turn over at the Great Impressions Blog and I have a fun layout to share with you all today. :) I was in a mixed media mood so I got out my stencils, inks, and most important-my Great Impressions Stamps!
Here's my layout.
For this layout I used these awesome stamps: K94 Distressed Background, E645 Retro Spirals, E492 Twirly Background, and C313 Retro Happy Birthday.
Here is the Retro Happy Birthday stamp. I used Real Red Stampin' Up Craft Ink with this stamp and clear embossing powder. I used Real Red on the Tim Holtz Resist letters and for the Twirly Background stamp.
There are splatters from the stencils and from some mists that I used. However, if you look here and see those brown dots (walnut stain distress ink)--that is the distressed background stamp. I used it in other places on this layout but it shows up really well on the right hand corner.
Here are the retro circles. I used weathered wood and black soot distress inks. The weathered wood (like a gray) was applied first. Then I just did a few black circles to give it some dimension. You can also see the red twirls. :)
Here is how this look where the picture goes. You won't see all of those circles-but you need them to get the border to have some depth. The chevrons are a stencil (heidi swapp) and Stampin' Up White Craft Ink.
Here is the area with the picture and embellies. I also used Tim Holtz's sun burst stencil. Some of those dots you see is bubble wrap with walnut stain distress ink.
