A-very Beautiful Life...

I have been wanting to get back into scrapbooking for ages, and as I'm working a short week this week, thought this was the perfect opportunity to combine Sketchabilities Sketch Challenge, Frosted Designs Clear or Sheer Challenge and Avery Elle's Water Colour Challenge.

Pink Paislee Color Wash pad is a great base for Avery Elle's Water Colour Challenge. This gorgeous Avery Elle Petal and Stems flower was stamped on Color Wash paper in Versamark Watermark and clear embossed. These cool Avery Elle Petal and Stems leaves were die cut from a variety of papers from Studio Calico and Pink Paislee, together with coloured vellum, another sheer element. The Avery Elle Simply Tags die cut tag, word strips, Life sentiment and pink scallops were cut from Pink Paislee Color Wash papers, while the wooden scallops were cut from American Crafts paper.  The paper layers were all adhered in place before stamping this beautiful Avery Elle Love Notes sentiment in Wet Cement Hero Arts ink and little Avery Elle Love Notes hearts randomly stamped in Spun Sugar Distress Ink. The final sheer element, sequins from my stash and the Studio Calico wood veneer butterfly (playing along with Little Red Wagon's Wood Veneer Challenge) were adhered last.
