HeArt & Soul DT debut and SOUS Sketch Release!

I am so excited finally be able to reveal that I have been asked
 to be on the Design Team for the brand new challenge site, HeArt & Soul!


The Color Room and Scrap for Help have merged into one great site with challenges and inspiration galore!
For the first challenge you must use this palette and junk mail:


I combined this challenge with today's Stuck on U Sketches release and created this:


 I just received the spankin' new Prima Princess papers from Swirlydoos' Boutique fell in love!
The junk mail I used was some envelopes that I inked with Distress Ink in Peeled Paint and Victorian Velvet and used as matting. I love my new Prima stitch stamps too since I hate sewing but want the look.



I used embossing powder and TCW Chickenwire mask for the first layer of the background, but it became mostly hidden by the time I added all my layers! After inking the papers,I applied white texture paste using the Ledger mask by TCW. I really like the subtle effect and dimension it brings to the page.


I broke up a Prima Lyrics vine and tucked it in among my clusters of flowers and Prima Princess Chipboard. I used clear embossing on the fairy and butterflies for some shine, plus lots of Diamond Stickles and Pearl Dots.




Then,as always, I'm not happy until I stuff random bits of lace and ribbon and such among my distressed layers.

So..now it's your turn!
