Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft and JustRite Papercraft Blog Hop

Hi everyone, Mou here! Welcome to the blog hop :)

Justrite






















Here's my layout:
























In my layout, I have used the following products:
Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®: Cotton Candy and Aqua Dolce
Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pens: Black, Cold Grey, and Cobalt Green 

Let me walk you through the steps.


I colored the background with Gelatos® and then stamped on the wet background.





















I stamped a border on cardstock and cut it with scissors.







 I stamped kind of a frame around for a layered look.



Next, I stamped some flowers, cut them out and attached them to the page.




I stamped some more lacy medallions.


I stitched, added my photo, title and journaling to finish.

Hop on for more inspiration




Happy hopping!
