Because my pages are going to end up with dimensional objects on them, any stamping and page coloring needs to be done before adding those items. So, I will attempt to keep things in as much order as possible, but each page will not be embellished with dimension until the very last. Therefore, some pre-planning needs to be done.
Starting with the cover, use Sofft art sponge to apply both magenta and green pan pastels to background, blending where the two colors meet.
stencils that Sin City Stamps now carries. I later inked the edges with brown distress ink (not shown in this photo).
Stamp "Things I Love" in Versamark and emboss with detail black embossing powder onto a scrap of gold paper that has been adhered to very thin cardboard. Center die over words and cut out.
Now for some pictures of my additional dimensional embellishments.
Front cover: I added black netting from produce, Things I Love die cut label raised with pop dots, a fussy cut collage image of a little boy from the Frog Dog kit, also raised with pop dots, and the two flowers shown above. To the center of the smaller green flower, I added a resin embellishment from my stash.
