Perfect Fit

Hi everyone!  Another guy style LO... loving having some pics of Kel, but already need more {bribery time}! 

These papers are from Donna Salazar's Spring in Bloom Collection... I love that there are quite a few in the range that work for masculine layouts as well!  I had some left over papers {... and inks, and mists... and and and... Donna was sooooo generous} after submitting my projects for the 2nd round of the DSD DT Call, so I've kept playing... anyways, keep your fingers crossed for me, not long to go now!!

The finish on the Manilla Tag was inspired by Donna Salazar's Mix'd Media Inx tutorial.  I inked the edges, misted with water to let the ink run and then while still wet touched it with more ink and sprayed with Smooch Spritz.  You can see Donna's tutorial HERE, it's well worth a watch!

The little puzzle pieces were touched with Mix'd Media Inx and then embossed with various colours, afterwards they were touched with Mix'd Media Inx ReInker and spread over the embossing so it was left in all the bare spots.

Love the corrugated board, it too was inked and then embossed and then sprayed with Smooch Spritz.

Love {yeah I know, there's a lot of loving happening lately on here} Spellbinders Shadow Flowers die, it's one of my favourites!  I cut out the shadow flower, inked the edges with Mix'd Media Inx, misted it with water to get the ink to blend and then sprayed with Smooch Spritz and finally dried it with a heat gun, love how it creates pockets of deeper colour where the Spritz has pooled.

So it was just a simple LO but I had lots of fun creating it - aka making a mess, it was quick and relaxing and I got to play... I love to play!!

Thanks for visiting, take care and
