Design Team Project Featuring ....

Hello everyone .... a huge thank you to everyone who stopped by and left a comment or shared their artwork with us during the Studio 490 month of February .... could it get any better .... oh yes indeedly ... the Design Team have some fab goodies to play with over the next few months .... watch this space for CHA 2012 releases (shhhh don't tell anyone I shared that with you)!!!

So onto this months project kit .... we have the latest release from 7Dots Studio "Wonderland" collection  .... oh YES to say I'm super excited is an understatement. I have to admit it took everything I had to cut into the papers/distress them ... does anyone else have a paper stroking phobia lol or is it just me!! I need to get more :)


We will also be featuring Chocolate Baroque "The Art Of Chess Stamp Set" ... more on that later in the week. HOWEVER .... One lucky person who stops by and leaves us a comment will be selected by Random.org at the end of the month and receive the "The Art of Chess Stamp set" as a prize!!!








To create the layout I used the following papers from the collection "Mad Tea Party, Spades & Clubs, Quadrille". I also used elements from the Wonderland Collection - 12x12 Die Cut Sheet, 12x12 Sticker Sheet & 6x12 Sticker Sheet. To obtain the worn edges I used a Tim Holtz Tonic Paper Distresser. Perfet Pearl Mist (Biscotti). I used a Stencil/Mask to achieve the mini gears background.

Other elements used available from Snazzy's .... Kaisercraft Wooden Flourish (Roman Clock), Ideaology Film Strip Ribbon, Distress Ink (Walnut Stain, Weathered Wood & Vintage Photo), The image, flowers and lace applique are from my own stash.

I will be back later in the week with some more projects to share, until then the Design Team thank you for your continued support, it is much appreciated.

This is a beautiful layout and yes I have to say I don't want to cut some of my papers either. This layout is wonderful. I must get some of these elements and try my hand at my own version of something similar. Gorgeous.

Wow, this is gorgeous. I bought some of these beautiful papers a little while ago - but can't bear to use them - so yes, I'm with you on that one!! Buy one to use, one to stroke is my motto....
