I'd like to share this layout I (literally) whipped up last night using Couture Creations The Van Roe collection dies and The Marriot embossing folders.
First of all I debossed my patterned paper using Peacock Fans. I wanted the fan shape to stand out, rather than inwards, so placed my paper facing the back of the die. Very simple but the embossed effect is different.
Here's an example of the pattern embossed (top) and debossed (bottom) on Core'dinations cardstock which I've sanded.
I've embossed using the Fubu folder and cut two Ornate rectangles, and three Beautiful Butterflies.
I've layered strips of paper, & the embossed papers, then smear Gesso, and stamped using these cool Couture stamps. A few spritzes with various mists, attach the photo and butterflies, and it was done!
I used the "waste' from the Tied Together die to create these harlequin shapes!
I smeared some black Glitzin' Glamour across the mesh tape to highlight it.
