August DT Inspiration- Off the Rails Scrapbooking.

My family and friends wait to see what wonderful new ideas and techniques I have been experimenting with.  

For all those people who love to get or give a special card from the heart, here is a little inspiration for you.


 The background of this card was created using spraying Dylusion Ink Sprays 'Cherry Pie', 'London Blue' and ' Dirty Martini'. Using my new Tim Holtz collection Doily stencil and modeling past I added texture to one corner and then added another layer with my new Kaisercraft Alphabet clear stamp with Tim Holtz Distress Ink 'Dusty Concord'.
My new layer was created by stamping my favorite script stamp onto a page from an old book, spraying it with 'London Blue' and tearing it to give depth and texture, before adding flora washi tape that I purchased in a little craft shop in Basel, Switzerland.

 I added circles of lemon and white striped cotton from my collection and green 'Depot. Band' twine which I also brought in Basel. I sprayed flowers and butterflies which I had utilised from a Molossi chipboard scroll I had in a fabulous pack I won. Using Prima flowers I arranged different flowers with the chipboard flowers, pearl brad, white cotton and a bird and quote from Kaisercraft  'curiosity' collection to finish my card. 

Hope you found some new ideas or techniques to experiment with and find the time to have fun experimenting next time you make a card. Thanks for joining us on Off the Rails Scrapbooking.
