Wplus9 Step Up Bold Pink

Wplus9 Love Birds

Embossing paste: how did I live without it? I love the depth and texture of the paste which has been coloured with Memento Luxe Love Letter and the jagged edges of the bold stripes which provide drama for the softer graphic image and coordinating sentiment. Glitter de rigueur!

Wplus9 Love Birds

Wplus9 are celebrating their birthday with lots of challenges, this week the focus is on dimension. I've used embossing and die cuts to achieve this. I've kept the embellishments to a minimum to allow the image and sentiment to take centre stage.
