UDC Week 3 at Swirlydoos

Well, I made it to the third round at the Swirlydoos Ultimate Design Challenge. But this may be my last week, the competition is fierce!!! And there are so many great altered projects and I just did a layout. There are not many layouts at all, and there are some fantastic entries! This week the challenge was to use Foil tape or foil with embossing. This is my page.

The background is foil. I hand embossed lines diagonally both ways on the entire sheet. Then painted with black acrylic paint and wiped most off. I also scratched random places for a sanded look.

Below you can see the hearts and peace symbol. I hand drew them and used embossing folders on them. Then used alcohol inks

I used a Spellbinder's die and cut the butterflies. You can also see the frame that I used am embossing folder on and alcohol ink and a platinum medium that I rubbed on. The tiles were embossed and alcohol inked as well. Lots of folders for different patterns. All items are foil.

Here you see a close up of one of the butterflies and part of the title. I used chipboard letters to emboss the word "Love". I used ink and the paste medium on this as well.

Here you see more of the title, I added matching brads to look like hardware. And of course added some blooms and bling!!!

This pushed me as well as last week! But I enjoyed working on this! The challenge is making me get out of my comfort zone for sure! Thanks for dropping by and please go check the Swirlydoos gallery to see all of the great projects!!!

Oh this is wonderful! You have so much texture on this layout it is an absolute feast for the eyes - but the focus is still on the photo. Great job!
