Cherish layout
by Marie Claude Rodier

Hello 2Crafty fans!

This month, 2Crafty is guest designing on the CSI Colors Stories Inspiration blog. 

After being part of CSI design team for more than 2 years, I was very happy to solve a brand new case as guest designer. Cases are always so fun to work with!!!
 I chose case #272 for this layout.


The whimsical characters of the image immediately caught my attention. 
I dug into my stash of photos looking for a fun photo of my kids that would fit this case.

After finding my picture, I chose the color scheme, leaves and winter theme as my main elements. I also added splatters and of course, 2Crafty chipboard as wood elements.

As I wanted a winter theme, I used a monochromatic color scheme except for a few touches of burgundy, moss green and light denim.

As always, I started by applying white gesso on all my chippies.
This way, the embossing powders colors applied on top are vibrant.

I used an olive embossing powder to cover 4" mandala no.1.
One layer is enough of cover it up nicely.

Amelia Flowers stems were embossed with a light moss green powder.
Their silver reflection compliments the winter accent of my layout.

Finally, the Cherish title, part of Fine Word set 1, was embossed with a sparkling vanilla powder,
one of my all time favorite embossing powder!
