Inspiration Wednesday

Hi there Sharon here and I'd like to show you a card inspired by some recent KOTM and SMAK kits. You can really mix and match the kits to go together perfectly.


The trainers and sentiment come from the January KOTM, When You Smile. I coloured the trainers with Copics and then went over the whole of them with vintage photo distress ink for a more distressed look. The sentiment was stamped onto white card and then distress ink all over. I then made a little frame by tearing and distressing a little of the paper I'd used underneath the curls.

The heart comes from the December KOTM {Always Been You} I paper pieced the heart and then used the "cracked glass" effect on it. To do this you need to use ultra thick embossing powder. Heat up 3 layers onto your piece and then put it in the freezer for about 5 mins. Take it out and bend it a little all over, this makes the layers crack and you get a nice destressed effect.

For the background papers I used a nice sheet of written, distressed paper and distressed it a bit more by curling it up and going over it with distress ink in vintage photo. I added some turquoise paper underneath to show through. I then stamped onto the paper with 2 images ( the newspaper print and the coffee rings) from the November SMAK kit Forget The Past. I stamped randomly in vintage photo ink and then clear embossed to make them stand out.

So as you can see the different kits really do go well with each other. I hope I've inspired you to get out ALL your kits and have a go. We'd love to see your projects on our Show & Tell Facebook page.

Have a lovely day
Sharon
