Scraps of Darkness Design Team Reveal!!!

Scraps of Darkness is proud to introduce our beautiful kit for April

Reminder: Today is the last day to get your applications in for our Scraps of Darkness and Scraps of Elegance design team call!

Filled to brim as always with beautiful Fabscraps, Glitz and Bo Bunny!
Top it all off with Prima flowers and Melissa Frances Resins and it's a kit you can't resist!

My first layout to share is one I have wanting to do since the loss of this beautiful songbird Miss Whitney. I am a big fan of her magnificent voice and was filled with sorrow when the world lost this treasure.

The Voice
These Serenity papers by Bo Bunny are really just begging to be fussy cut and so I did!

The red die cut shapes were cut on my Cameo. I detailed the large red flowers with gold stickles. The small brown and black circles were also fussy cut and clipped to form flowers. The alpha is a file that Lisa Gregory (What a beautiful mess) shares on her blog.

As soon as I unveiled my fabulous kit this month I knew I wanted to scrap a Geisha. Ahh but where to find one for an impromptu photo shoot? Lucky for me I found one on photobucket and did some editing. I removed the unwanted people and buildings from the background and oh...sorry... other Geisha girl... just wanted one! I added a texture and effects to the background and love how it turned out.

I had a smack down with that gorgeous piece of Dusty Attic. She was not cooperating with all my painting, misting and repainting. I finally came up with the result I was looking for.

I painted the chipboard in acrylic paint and then stamped it with a crackle stamp. I try a lot of techs on my DA and always seem to prefer the stamping over the paint or ink. The flowers on the left are Heartfelt Creations Stamps Petite Poinsettias 

Each month we get to work with a sketch designed for us by our artist Suepup a/k/a Charolotte
Scraps of Darkness also offers a color add on each month with our signature add on! We love this feature and this month I decided to do a mixed media canvas from the sketch inspiration showcasing the beautiful products in this add on.

I purchased the image from MagyMai711 etsy shop. I treated the canvas with Lindy's Tawny, Turquoise, Rudophs Red Nose, Marigold and the Prima Mask that came with the add on. I used a texture paste with the mask and distress ink.
We also received some Kaisercraft rub on quotes in our kits. I added this to the canvas as well. 
My final layout to share today is one I created using the Glitz paper in this months kit.

This photo of my dd was taken a few years ago by my friend Gina. I hire her to do a couple of photoshoots a year. Love her work!

The bike on this paper reminded me of this photo and I thought it was a perfect fit. 
I cut the leaves our on my Cameo and used distress ink to color them.
We received a Prima stamp set in our kit with sweet little birds and flowers. I used those as some fillers in my flowers and leaves.
I used the Carnations Creations Die from Heartfelt Creations to create my flowers.

I hope you enjoyed this months reveal. Be sure to stop in Scraps of Darkness to see this kit in it's entirety as well as the other designers work!
