Hi there! Sorry for the mushy lovey-dovey photo LOL. This photo was taken in Colombia a day after my husband proposed to me. I literally called his attention and snapped this pic while I stole a kiss. Originally I wanted the picture to be 12" in height so that it would stretch to the edges of my page, but my wide format printer ran out of ink. So I improvised a little.
For the title I used some old metal letter tiles from my stash. The heart and wings are from Tim Holtz's Grungeboard elements. I inked the wings and added Perfect Pearls to the edges and then stamped some flourishes onto them in copper. The heart was inked and embossed with aged mahogany Distress embossing powder. Behind the title I used some copper leaves.
The fence is made by Dusty Attic. I inked it using black soot and applied Perfect Pearls using a brush.
I used a border punch by Fiskars called "All a Fleur". It punches and embosses at the same time. Behind the punched borders along the top and botom of the page, I stamped another border.
I made the large flower myself. If you'd like to see how, please check out my Low Profile Flower Tutorial.
This black flourish is made by Prima. I cut it up into about 10 pieces and arranged it the way I wanted. I love the versatility of these flourishes.The book plate is made by Tim Holtz.
Along the left side of my page, I punched a few holes and set an eyelet in each hole. I laced a ribbon through the holes and added a few chippie vines in between. The vines were inked and dabbed with copper Stickles. The metal corners are by Tim Holtz.
