DCWV June Stackaholic Challenge Layout

Happy Sunday crafty friends,
I hope you are enjoying your weekend and getting some fun crafting in! Today I wanted to share the layout I made for the DCWV monthly Stackaholic challenge. This is what I came up with.

I created this layout using some wonderful vintagey looking papers from the Dear Jane Stack. The cuts are from PaperCraftingWorld.com Layout 614 set. I started with a layer of Cream colored Bazzil cardstock. I inked the edges of all the layers with with my Chocolate ink from the Basics Ink Pad set from Close To My Heart. I then used a piece of paper from the stack for the main background. I then used a different paper from the stack for the flowers and circle. The image with the bird and birdcage as well as the title were also from the same stack.

Here is a pic of the layout sketch we had to work with.

Here’s a closer look at the flowers. The blue patterned paper was from the Dear Jane Stack. I cut the flowers out using my Pazzles Inspiration cutter.  Once cut, I inked the edges with some Crystal Blue ink from the Whimsy Ink pad set. I then distressed the petals (see below), added them to the layout and added some Cinnamon Stickles to the centers.

Here’s another view of the flowers. I inked the edges of the vine with some Chocolate ink from the Basics Ink Pad set.

Here’s a closer look at the title. You can see that it comes pre-printed and has a nice glittered edges. I simply added some more Chocolate ink to distress the edges.

Here’s a closer look showing the edge with the lace. I used some foam tape underneath and then faux stitched around the edge with a sharpie fine tip marker.

stamped mat-490
For the mat in the background, I used a piece of kraft cardstock and then stamped it with one of the stamps from the Distressed backgrounds set. I used my  Dessert Sand ink Pad as it gave it a more tone on tone look and not a stark contrast.

Here is one last look at the layout. It is a photo of my Grandmother with my Uncle Dan and my mother (she was the toddler)…circa 1949.
