Lads will be lads. . .

Simon and David my two handsome nephews.

It's nice to create your own masterpiece from scratch. I started with a piece of whisper white 12 by 12 card stock, then using the stamp set called The Open Sea, I embossed the left hand side of the page with black and the right hand side in clear.
I sewed along the edges with grey cotton then stamped splotches in basic grey ink using a stamp from the stamp set called French Foliage then using a wonderful device called a Color Spritzer and a Stampin' Write Marker sprayed a touch of Pacific Point blue and Rich Razzleberry ink around the page and combining the Frost white shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol  and a few drops of basic grey ink in a spray bottle then lightly spraying the page, its not overly clear in this photo but the page has a light grey shimmer. From there I distressed the edge of my photo then backed the photo with a designer series paper from the Pocketful of Posies range. I used the same paper to punch out 4.4cm circles to create the swirly flowers at the top right hand and bottom left of the page.

For the title I used a wonderful stamp set called  Letter It, combining it with an ink color called basic grey and a light spray of shimmer paint.
If you are wondering where you can get all of these awesome products that I have been writing about in this post, they all came from the Stampin' Up Range, of which I am a huge fan.
I hope I have given you some more ideas and ways to incorporate stamping into your scrap lay outs.

Have a Scrappy Day.
