All romantic with MME Cut & Paste 'Flair'

Hi there everyone! I hope you are having a lovely Sunday afternoon.  It's been another beautiful day in Perth, so I can't complain. :)  I've had a play with my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store last night.  It's packed with the gorgeous MME Cut & Paste 'Flair' collection.  I've decided to use a photo of hubby and I taken on his 50th birthday in January this year.  I love the black chalkboard background of this paper.
A little close up.  The stickers in this collection are gorgeous too.  I've used the new WOW Alta Matz 'Chevron Flowers' stencil to create some texture.  These stencils are quite thick and gives a lovely 3D effect when you use texture pastes, or in this case Atelier 'Heavy White Gesso Primer'.  I added the pink by spraying a bit of Heidi Swapp 'Primrose' mist on a piece of paper and just wiping it over the top of the gesso with my craft knife.

My title is a chipboard 'wordlet' from Scrap FX.  I've inked it first, then covered it in  X-Press It 'Clear Glue', then sprinkled some of the brand new Ranger Ink 'Distress Glitter' over the top of it. (I used colour 'Spun Sugar'). Once dried, I sprayed a few coats of Helmar 'Crystal Kote' over the top of it.  I used the Crafters Workshop 'Confetti' stencil and rubbed some glue over the little hearts and covered it with glitter too.  I love the subtle shiny colour it adds. :)

That's all for now. I hope to be back with some more layouts soon.  Thank you for  visiting and have a wonderful day/afternoon!
Until next time.
