"From Paris With Love" - February Design Team Work for Inkido {Papercrafts Scandinavia}

Hello again!  Yes I am blogging thick & fast at the moment as all my DT work fell at the end of the month in February so I need to get through sharing it all so I can start on March tomorrow!  

I was live on the Inkido Blog HERE on February 23rd.  
 We had a very colourful challenge last month & our entries are growing! 

 We have a new challenge up at INKIDO every month so why not try to join in this month?  
 You DO NOT have to use Inkido products if you can't
 get hold of any so check out our March challenge HERE.

Is not this just decadent & delicious?  
I enjoyed brightening up my Inkido papers with some chipboard, flowers & bling!

I started with the Beautiful Memories 11 patterned paper for my background, 
Blue Memories  & then I misted up a doily with some sprays, to add a 
contrasting yellow color to my base, to brighten up my page.

I glittered up some chipboard from some extra sparkle & of course I added some BLING!

I also added some more Inkido papers as layers underneath my photograph, together 
with some washi tape {as a way to add in some more of my contrast color - RED}. 

The other patterned papers I used are Sage Memories
 {the music note paper} & another floral Inkido paper.

Here is where the FLOWER FUN came in!  

These "Cherry Flowers" from Inkido are very versatile, 
especially if you order them in "Natural White" like I do, because
 then you can spray, mist and glitter away to your hearts content - just like I have done :)

I sprayed my flowers with a touch of turquoise mist then added a tiny bit of red glitter 
to keep my accent color popping up throughout my page. Above you can see that I 
used the wonderful "Blue Garden" paper from the "Forever Summer" collection
 from Inkido.

This paper has lovely red roses on it so was absolutely perfect for February's challenge!

To finish off my layout I added some black rub-ons & some heart stick pins.
Of course the chipboard comes from 2Crafty in Australia & the 
red glitter & the mists comes from Lindy's Stamp Gang :)
