A Romantic Month at Scrap FX

A big Hello to everyone!
A new month of Scrap FX goodies have arrived and here is what I have been playing with so far!

Damask Stencil

I have already done a project with the Damask stencil in the previous post in my LO for Sassy Scrappers, but I have also tested out the Marrakech stencil!

I combined it with the chicken wire heart and this  peacock I adore!

I have to say the peacock was just divine to play with! I used a combination of embossing powders from Lindys Stamp Gang and mica pigment paint.

The title is a wordlet that I have also treated with embossing powders and Lindys Stamp Gang Spray!

The photo is of my Little Bro and his wife, I love this set of photos!

And here is the full page:
The quote is a stamp from Kaiser that just seemed "right" for the page!

Also had a play with the Diamond flourish stamp, deciding on a more subtle image made with the watercolour paint I used on the background. It was super easy, I just dropped the stamp (of course it was on purpose!!!!) on to the puddles I had made on the background before it was dry. Then just stamped away on different parts of the page..... it worked a treat.....a happy accident!
I just loved how it turned out!!

I tried my hand at lettering with a brush, the trick is ..... hold your breath and just do it quickly!!

And here is the page:

Oh Happy Day is a new stamp set that can be used as a stencil ( using the backing) or a stamp.....genius!
