Natural Bond

Today's layout is a DT layout for Bo Bunny. This layout is for the "Stamping and Sewing" assignment at Bo Bunny's blog. I've used the beautiful Gabrielle line to create this layout.

Here are some close-ups on it.

In the close-up above, I've stamped the chipboard alphas with the Timepiece stamps and solvent ink. I've also hand stitched across these alphas.

I've used the Timepiece clock stamp to stamp on the pattern paper and cut it out. Ink it's edges with distress ink and attach it to the layout with a brad.

In this pictures above, I've used the stamping and masking technique together to create the corners.

I must admit that cutting out these pieces from the pattern paper really takes up some time but I love the outcome.

To create the shadow under the butterfly, I've used the double stamping technique. I stamped once directly on the layout and another on a separate pattern paper. Then, I cut out the butterfly and ink its edges with distress ink. Attach it directly above the first stamped butterfly on the layout.

I've had tons of stamping and stitching fun creating this layout. Hope it inspires you all in someway.

You really do amaze me. Every lo you create is a masterpiece! Always brilliantly beautiful. I especially love the butterfly for which you used the double stamping technique. The patterned paper on the butterfly is perfect. You are always an inspiration.
