Scraps of Darkness and Heartfelt Creations!

This week I used the beautiful January "Escape" kit from Scraps of Darkness and my coveted Heartfelt Creations Stamps!


This is a photo of my older daughter years ago. I used the Vintage Doors Precut Set and colored it with watercolor pencils. FUN!!!!

I also used the Daisy Patch Precut Set for my flowers. I trimmed them down to three petals in spots to make little flower buds. The Gala Glitz is fabulous and I used it as the flower centers and on the little buds.

The bike and explore chipboard came in our Scraps of Darkness. I used distress stain on the bike then went over it in acrylic white paint and dabbed it off a bit with a paper towel.
