Spellbinders and Want2Scrap Layout with Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutant

Good morning! Wow, where did the time go? I can't believe it's the end of the month already!! It seems like March just flew by! Oh well just another day closer to nicer weather. ;-) Today, I have a scrapbook layout to share with you. The designer paper is Steampunk Debutant from Graphic 45 and I used several die templates from Spellbinders™. One of the ladies in the photo was a relative to my grandpa and her name was Lily. I love this photo! I used the S5-048 Sprightly Sprockets die templates from Spellbinders™ to tie in the Steampunk look. I used the Grand Calibur™ to cut/emboss the die templates and I used Simply Smooth Ivory, Milk Chocolate cardstock from Discount Cardstock. I inked the edges with Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa ink. I also used Copper Engraving Art Foil and sanded the edges to reveal the copper foil. Then I added Black Rhinestones from Want2Scrap and a gear from Tim Holtz for embellishments.I used old book pages and the Grand Calibur™ along with S5-050 Rose Creations to cut the roses. I used ivory paint to do a dry brush paint over the flowers and then I inked them with Spun Sugar and edged them with Fired Brick. Then I crinkled, shaped and layered the flowers. I used Zip Dry from Beacon Adhesives to glue all of the layers together. For the leaves I used S4-328 Foliage with Posh Green Crepe paper and then inked the leaf die cuts with Peeled Paint Distress Ink from Ranger.I love the picture of the lady on the Steampunk Debutant paper from Graphic 45. I wanted to showcase the image so I used the natural curve of the Black Finesse Rhinestone Swirls from Want2Scrap. I used the border from the S5-034 Parisian Accents from Spellbinders™ and White Baby Pearls from Want2Scrap to edge the layout. I used Zip Dry from Beacon Adhesives to adhere the borders. Zip Dry works great for small detailed pieces because if there is a little glue that comes out from the edges you can just rub it off. Love that! I used chipboard letters from My Mind's Eye and inked them with Tuxedo Black Ink.
