Your Eyes Tell On You

I had so much fun creating with my gel-a-tins wild things stamps that I couldn't help but create a project other than a card! It really is a must-have and I'm not saying it just cause I'm on the gel-a-tins DT! lol!! :)

I made a tag featuring my sweet lil model..Missy A! :) and this time I'd like to take you through a teeny weeny tute on how I made this ;)

First, cut a 4x6 ivory cardstock and distress the edges. Stamp a flower image of your choice at random areas
Next, cut out a smaller piece of cardstock, and repeat the same as above. Once done, adhere the smaller piece atop the bigger cardstock and tear a lil at the sides so the image that you stamped on the larger cardstock peeks through.
Adhere a sheet of vintage music notes or patterned paper and place the photo. Stamp the flowers again, only this time, stamp the images onto the photo (making sure not to cover the face lol!!
Finally,embellish to your heart's content and stamp some pom pom flower on to transparency, and layer them on top of the paper flower ;)
Simple eh? ;) Here's what the final product looks like ;)
Materials Used : Ivory Cardstock, Ranger Distress Inks, Chalk Ink in Sandstone, Transparency, Staz On, Kaisercraft flowers, Liquid Pearl, Prima Leaves, Vintage Music Notes Sheet.
