Alpha Challenge 'Y'

The Craft Barn's Alpha Challenge this time is 'Y' but with a twist - we had to use yellow.  Now I failed to read the 'yellow' bit  (silly me) so I made a page in pink and blue!  Whoops, I had to start again!!  The word I chose was 'You' which my husband actually suggested.



The mirror is made with a frame stamped from the Vintage Photography Creative Expressions stamp set - I stamped it in Sepia Versafine, embossed it with clear powder then added highlights with Patina Creative Expressions Guilding Wax.  I then attached it to a piece of mirror card to make it into the mirror.  The photo doesn't really show that very well though, sorry!  The pink background is a fabulous Special Touch mask that was a pressi from my friend Marl, that has been inked through with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  The flowers are cut using the Cherry Blossom Spellbinders set inked with Mustard Seed Distress Ink and the same ink has been used to frame the page.  The writing is done with a brown Promarker on yellow card from my stash and the 'YOU' is stamped, embossed and cut out and highlighed with the Patina Guilding wax. Please visit The Craft Barn and see all the other fab pages and maybe enter yourself, its great fun!  Its been very hot here in Bournemouth again today.  The outside of my house is being painted at the moment and the man doing it must have fried! Thank you for visiting me, I really do appreciate it! Take care.  Christine xx
