I used 3 different paper collections ...they all seemed to work together. I used BasicGrey's Infuse for the large circle, K&CO Blue Awning for the small circle & gold background paper & lastly , My Little Yellow Bicycle's Vita Bella for the background blue.
The photo was matted using card stock & Fiskars effervescent border punch. I distressed all raw edges with Distress walnut stain & Rangers Prussian Blue From the Nick Bantock line. If you are not familiar with the Nick Bantock inks you should check them out! They are rich,warm jewel tones!!
The paper edges were punched with threading water punch & distressed with the walnut stain/ The Fancy Pants flourishes & Maya Road alpha were inked with the Prussian Blues ink. I added a few blue jewels to the circle to bring the blues into the papers.
The flower were made with a retro punch as the base, layered with papers used in layout & cut with my Big Shot. I added a small retro punch on the top & attached with a brad. All edges were distressed with the inks. I added a few small paper flourishes near the flow for "flow". Lastly I mounted 3 circles on chip & added small flower & gem to each corner! This was a fun layout to do! Thank you so much for taking a look!!!
