I did many layers,some distressed,some with punch work & chipboard layers. I also did some hand stitching, & stitched on strings of beads….


I did some stencil work, using TCW Art is & Viva Modeling cream (champagne). I stained the ivy with TA-GM chalkboard (decadence),& once that dried I applied a coat of  rock candy crackle. Once the crackle dried, I rubbed in some pebbles pearl chalk (off white), to bring out the cracks & also to try to get the color, closer to the leaves in the paper. On the hearts of the vine I used Viva Modeling Cream (rose)…..


Shows some more layers & the top part of a heart. I used picket fence crackle on the scallop border & on the fancy trim I used shabby pink smooch,then inked the edges using a brown ink pad.


Isn’t she beautiful!!!!

I dry brushed on some LuminArte’ (heavenly white), on to the page pebbles & nameplate. On the outside edges of the name plate & the wordlet, I used shabby pink smooch,then inked the edges using a brown ink pad…

The flower under the nameplate is Prima…



I wrapped ribbon & beads around the photo,then made a flower cluster using Prima flowers…

Thank you so much for taking the time to look…..Rachelle
