May Blue Fern Studios Inspiration!

Hello, Blue Fern Studios fans!

Sandi here with you today sharing a project for Blue Fern Studios. Because I work ahead, only one of my May projects is done using our newest Tranquility collection. However, that gave me a chance to catch up on some faves. 
This month it seemed that "my jam" was using a mix of embossing powders and glitters on a single chipboard piece. So fun!

"Memories Captured"

My new favorite! This is one of those projects that is so sparkly in real life but is hard to capture with the camera. I've used the gorgeous Serendipity papers and layered and stamped them to create a unique effect. The darker pattern is Reminisce, side B. It provides such a dramatic backdrop.

The Deja Vu Atelier chipboard, as well as the Captured Words title chipboard were altered with black gesso as a primer and then glammed with Oatmeal, Garnet and Cotton Candy Embossing Powders along with some Dusty Rose glitter.

The contrast of the Oatmeal Embossing Powder on the blackened chipboard almost gives a silvery sheen. I love experimenting with different combinations! Here I've added a fussy cut butterfly and some of the Courtship Lane Roses and Blooms. I used the Courtship Lane branding strip as a subtitle.  Off to the right you can spy some of the Halftone stamping. 

The title is from the Captured Words set and is treated the same as the Atelier chipboard. To the right and under it, I've layered in a Whimsy Flourish that was colorized with a gelato and then enhanced with some random embossing using Lime Embossing Powder. Again, some Courtship Lane blooms. 

The Aloha Flower chipboard was primed with white gesso, then colored with gelato and and again randomly embossed. For consistency, I've used Lime on the stem and leaves, Cotton Candy on the flower itself.
