'Sweet' Layout - Zva Creative/Pink Paislee

Thank goodness I already had this post titled in my 'Drafts' with the photos waiting - because I totally forgot to share the close ups last week!

You can find the Mixed Media tutorial I did on this background on my blog HERE so no need to talk about that anymore.

I just LOVE this new heart punch I bought recently - the punch trend seems to be waning slowly but this punch is just fresh I think!

I loved the look so much I double-layered the punching!  
The pink dots you see are Liquid Pearls from Ranger. 
 I got my love for those thanks to the inspiration of Karola Witczak - one of the super scrappers that people refer to by first name only, she's that good.

Most of the items in my cluster come from Pink Paislee & some are designed to be coloured (they are embossed so when you go over them with inks, etc the designs show up).  I used Faber Castell gelatos on them (the pink colour).  I've been a bit slow to jump on the Gelato bandwagon, out of fear mainly, but now that I am on I don't think I'll be falling of the wagon anytime soon :)

Have to agree about that punch - was wondering about it then you answered my question & it looks brill as a double....those PP hearts are pretty delicious as well, I reckon:):):)

Gorgeous. I love the Pink Paislee artisan chipboard and I colour them with my Tim Holtz distress markers.
