    #scrapbooktechniques202305 Weekly challenge

  • Papers –
    • I used one double sided patterned paper from Hey Handsome for the splashes of color in the top and bottom border
    • One 12×12 sheet of Harbour Cardstock
    • One 12×12 sheet of orange shimmer cardstock
  • Ideas –
    • All from this challenge #scrapbooktechniques202305
  • Techniques –
    • With a very light busy background, I choose dark cardstocks to emphasize my black & white challenge options.
  • Colors –
    • I used the Close To My Heart colors of Harbour & Paprika
  • Tools –
    • To create my borders on the top and bottom, I used the zip strips off of the 12×12 Hey Handsome paper pack and then added a black rick rack border to the bottom.
  • Coloring Tools –
    • Just a little black on my tag containing my logo (printed out on clear sticker paper) was about all the inking I did on this page
  • Embellishments – 
    • I used several pieces of chipboard to add a few embellishments. These were all from my orange small embellishment stash.
