I used the my May 2009 My Creative Scrapbook kit that featured Crate's Lillian collection. I have a stack of untouched kits from 2009 that I had not gotten a chance to use due to our move... now that we are all settled I am able to use them... it is like getting them delivered twice!!
I also used Liz Qualman's Sunday Feb 21 sketch. Check out her sketches..they are very inspiring!
I used the pink Crate shield & a duplicate one cut from the green papers-both included with the kit. I layered the shield to give it some extra detail. The pink layer was inked with Distress worn lipstick & a dab of Distress broken china, & the green was inked with Distress peeled paint & the broken china. I then "dotted" the outer green shield with black fabric paint! I love the shiny finish fabric paint has! I punched circles from a medium circle punch & inked the edges with both green & blues & adhered them under the ribbon as a scallop.
