"Wild About You" Scrap Page With An Accidental Embellishment - Here's How To Create Your Own Accident!

I am a bit of a novice when it comes to making a Scrap Page, but since I am a new grandma, I thought I would give it a go.

My daughter sent me this beautiful photo of Tyler - I loved the colours in it and immediately thought I could match them with some of my Stampin" Up! colours and card stock. To my delight they did match perfectly with Ballet blue, Pumpkin Pie and Ruby Red.

I had a new crimper from Stampin Up, and as I love a bit of contrasting texture on all my craft work, I decided to use that as a background for the page title.

I stamped the "Wild" title using Ballet Blue, and got the different tones of the colour by repeatedly stamping the letters without re-inking. I then cut them out and glued them to the corrugated white card stock. I used a variety of punches for the dots, and punched out the circles from some of the left over stamped-off letters.

The Lion embellishment across the bottom of the Scrap Page again uses the repetition stamping method. By doing this I have achieved 2 tones of each colour.

This area was finished off with one of Stampin' Up!'s new Jumbo Eyelets, and I used the fabulous Cropodile to set it in place.

A little bit of double stitched ribbon helps to combine the reds throughout the entire Scrap page.

I am a fan of the wonderful Hodge Podge Kit available from Stampin" Up! so thought I would add a little metal higher up the page to balance the Jumbo Eyelet below.

This is where I thought I goofed really badly, but ......

I stamped the words "about you" in Ruby Red, cut them out and glued them into the metal shape. It didn't look quite how I wanted, so I thought I would make a faux gel by filling in the entire area with Crystal Effects. As soon as I had done that I knew it would smudge badly because of the ink having a water base, and thought I had ruined the whole thing.

A good nights sleep does wonders, and the next morning, I decided to try stamping over the top of the crystal effects with Stazon Ink.

I used the wonderful and ever useful Stamp-a-ma-jig to align the stamp exactly where I wanted it, and hoped for the best.

I am really happy with the result and will be using this technique in future Scrap pages.
