CSI #60 A Baby


Hi everyone! Shona here today with a layout I have made for the current challenge at CSI…and did you know that the Flying Unicorn sponsors CSI for their weekly challenges and we give out weekly prizes there? For this challenge I decided to create my own background using the color palette. So I have started with some white cardstock and just went at it with the colors.
 



First I did some masking with a Prima Mask and some molding paste in the background. Then to bring out that masking I have added some Shimmerz Treasured Hymn Spritz. Adding some colored mists to your masking helps to make it pop. The chippy is covered with some Stampendous Embossing Ivory powder and they just shimmer so pretty. All of the yummy flowers and bead trims are from Green Tara.
 

 I have added a hidden tag with some journaling and don’t forget to save your flower packaging to use as photo mats on your creations! The cute little resin pieces are also from Prima.
 

 Well that is it for today, I hope you try to create your own background and come on over to CSI and play along. There is a new challenge every week! Have a great weekend everyone!
