Hug

My mother and her younger sister in the 1940's


For this layout I used a piece of Blue Fern Studios paper for the background.


Beaumont - Remnants
Blue Fern Studios


I added smudges of yellow ochre Colorbox chalk ink randomly over the background to coordinate with the little flowers and the chipboard border.





These are the dies I used:


Rectangle Frames
 (AliExpress - HamyHo Cardstitched Store)
Doily Die
(AliExpress)
Paradise Ferns
- Tattered Lace
Flourish #13
- Cheery Lynn Designs





These are the chipboard pieces I used:


Floral Lace Border
- Creative Embellishments


Thorn Flourish Pair
- Creative Embellishments


I heat-embossed the Floral Lace Border with Ranger Embossing Antiquities Ocher, then traced around the edges with an orange marker to add a bit more dimension to the colour.





I heat embossed the Thorn Flourish Pair with Stampendous Frantage Embossing Enamel Aged Ochre and traced around the edges with a dark brown marker to accentuate the edges.













Here are some more close-ups:





The little flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts, the larger ones are by Prima.











Thank you so much for taking a look!
