April projects + VIDEO by Valerie Ouellet

"A Love Story"

Hi everyone! 
I'm back with a layout and a card with a step-by-step video.

To begin, I printed flowers that I colored with my gelatos and my fingers. Then I created my layout background also with gelatos. I did a watercolor effect.

I used the new chippie "Fine Leafy Bush" that I love! I used gelato and 13arts paint to create two tones effect.

I used a "Circle Dot Frame" to add more depth to the picture. I added a touch of glitter with Ranger glue glitter.

For my title, I used Deco Foil, a product that I love to use. 
First, I applied a layer of white gesso and after, the liquid glue. Once dry, I put the foil on the chipboard and rubbed with a stick. 
Finally, I added distress ink to distressed.

I also used the same technique on the flowers.

"Step-by-step video card"


This is a baby shower card, a bit unconventional. 
I used a deer that I embossed with wow embossing powder. It's the main element of my card.

I used the frame "Frame Celia's Flourish" behind. I embossed directly on the chippie, then I put a layer of white heavy gesso and finally a second layer of embossing powder.

I added some stars that I altered with Ranger glue glitter.
