A Scrappy, Stamping Sunday


I'm back with another post and this time it is a scrap layout.   After 17 years I still haven't finished my scrapping my Wedding Photos, so I took the opportunity to do one of my wedding photos playing along with 'The Colour Room's' Challenge today.  I don't have the exact colours but given it is my favorite colour combo of Pink & Green I couldn't resist, and I sort of followed the sketch too whilst getting to use some of my yet to be used stamps.






There is no designer paper, just lots of stamping on this layout, all though you may not be able to see it all as  my camera hates the colours pink and purple, and never shows them true to colour.  On enlarging this photo you will see the result of lots of editing in Photoshop to try and get the colours and clarity of this photo somewhat presentable for you.

I used some light pink chalk ink and stamped my Stampin' Up Baroque Motifs Flourish in the bottom left hand corner, and under my image and ribbon on the right hand side I used my So Swirly Wheel.  I embossed both of these with clear embossing powder.  In a darker pink Ink I used my Unity Smak Kit Photo Strip over my flourish in the bottom left corner and stamped the sentiment 'all because two people fell in love' under the photo.  My Beautiful Day Title was stamped in green ink on a white strip of cardstock and added to the bottom of my photo and  I also used one of my doilley flower stamps from the Unity Generation Kit, sponged with green ink and punched them out with my circle punch to layer under my photo.  Then it was simply a matter of raiding my flower stash, adding a strip of ribbon and there you have it.

It really was a beautiful day and this photo was one of the professional photos we had taken in the Park opposite the Royal Brisbane Hospital.

This is now my second scrap layout for 2012.....I think I might be on a roll.......lol.
