Scraps of Darkness Design Team Reveal!!!!
Introducing "Winters Eve" our December Kit!



"Winter came down to our home for one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again" ~ Bill Morgan Jr.

Melinda has assembled another stunning kit! How she does it month after month is beyond me but I am so happy I get to design with them! This months kit features Bo Bunny, Creative Imaginations and Glitz!
In addition to the main kit, Scraps of Darkness has several add ons to enhance your creativity with these kits. Two must have's are the exclusive Color Add On and the beautiful coordinating paper add on! I love both of them. This months color features 6 Lindys Mist and Prima Canvas!!!! 

My first layout this month was inspired by our sketch created by Charlotte!

I like to use new punches each month to go with my new kit and when I saw this new Martha Stewart Blooming Vines you know I had to have it! 
I used  Lindys Bougainvillea Fuchsia (one of the colors in the add on) and colored the Bo Bunny Enchanted paper design with it. 
We always get a wonderful selection of the newest and most beautiful flowers in our kits from Petaloo and Prima. I like to make a lot of my flowers, especially now that I am designing for Heartfelt Creations. This month I really wanted to show how to use those flowers in the kit and get the most out of them.
I took my large Prima  flower apart which was organza and satin and used just the organza petals on this layout. I used the Petaloo Color Me Crazy flowers in the center which I inked for a hint of color.
This layout is of my hubby and I about 25 years ago at my Sister in Laws wedding! Another item I wanted to show this month is how to mix the beautiful papers in the kit. I colored my Bo Bunny again to add the pink and mixed the Enchanted paper with the Glitz. 
Again, I took apart my Prima flowers and created three flowers from the one. I added the Petaloo in the centers again with inked edges. I added the Dusty Attic frame around the photo from my stash. The chandelier was one of the beautiful goodies in this months kit.
I love this gorgeous Christine Adolph paper! Purple is one of my favorite colors and I love the wintery feel to this collection. I did a little photoshopping, adding some sparklies and purple tint to the photo.
I combined the gorgeous black glittery Prima vine with more flowers that I took apart and added centers to. This got me a ton of the same color flower to cluster on this page.
I added some diamond dust, Glimmer Mist in Pearl and used my new Martha Stewart Skyland Snowflake punch and of course...some butterflies.
I really love the tiny alpha Mel selected this month. They work beautifully with Tim Holt's Tattered Banner Die. I fussy cut the Bo Bunny Enchanted paper and painted on Lindys Frosted Forget Me Nots. I also inked the paper in walnut to give it a vintage look. 
The leaves are a spellbinders die and I sprayed them in Lindys Black Orchid. The photo doesn't do it justice. The color is stunning. A very silvery shimmery color. Gorgeous!!!!
