This one is for you Judy

My friend Judy gave me a beautiful pack of white paper with embossed designs on by Stampin Up for part of my Christmas present along with a gold smooch spritz spray and this is what I have come up with. I traced lightly around where I wanted the tag (Basic Grey) and decorated chipboard shape, removed them and then spritzed more heavily around the edge of the tracing line and then lightly as I worked away from the line. I then dusted close to the line with gold shimmer chalk by Dovecraft and covered the rest of the page in a light dusting of coloured chalks to pick up the colours in the tag. I added the photo and a small tag with the date on and stamped "love is like a butterfly" on to the decorated chipboard. Using a cut and emboss die from Stampin Up I produced all the different sized butterflies and the adhered them to the page. In this photo you can't really see how it shimmers or the subtlety of the lighter chalking.
Here you can see a close up of the design showing through the spritzing and chalks. I had a great time working on the project and loved how you could alter the depth of the design by the heavy/light application of the chalks.
