Scrapping with black and white photos means you can have any colours you like on your page!!!

The timing of this page was perfect for me!!  Recently I received these 3 very old photos of me that were in my Grandmother's things.  Mum passed them on to me and I had my black and white photos ready to go!!  Because these photos are very old, I decided to try creating a shabby chic vintage style to add to the aged theme.  

I've used the Best Dressed designer series paper, Butterfly Gala, Parisian Beauty & Forever Blossoms stamp sets and the Parisian Dies.

I've sponged all of my stamping and papers using Petal Pink ink.  The stamping has been done with Lovely Lipstick and Petal Pink and Purple Posy.  (You can also create Purple Posy stamping by using a 2nd or 3rd generation stamped image of Highland Heather)   There are a few punches used on this page too!  I've used the butterfly duo punch, the small blossom punch, the 1" circle punch, and the Timeless Label punch for the title and journaling panel.  


I've used the Blackberry Bliss Nature's Twine which was stripped into three strands to make them finer for a bit of textural interest.  Champagne Rhinestones are added to the butterflies and flowers.  

In the background of the page, I've sponged Petal Pink over one of the Party Pattern masks, and stamped the script image randomly over the top.  

I'm very happy with my page and it's looks so pretty!!!
