Playing With Neutrals and CE

Hi all! Here today to share a LO that I made. I used My fave products on today's post. Flourishes and stamps! Combined those with CE photo frames and a sweet little title. Well that just about puts a LO together. Now I also love black and white photos. It gives you the creative freedom to use any color. However, I chose to used those neutrals combined with a couple more neutrals and one color. My fave teal which I chose only as a accent color. Here is the LO..

I love the elegance the black chippies gives this page. Very easy to color. Just grab some Tim Holtz black soot crackle. Cover the chippy. Then Highlight with a metallic color. Here I chose to use 13 Arts Metallic Old Gold. I also used the gold to cover the LOVE title. Which is also part of a chippie that I removed the word. Didn't have one on hand that was small enough for where I wanted it to go. Improvise!! :)This looks sooo vintage to me. I am a sucker for vintage any day. Here are some close ups..

 Just tiny traces of gesso goes a long way..

Very fun and super easy to do! Stamping the background with CE stamps really takes boring to dynamic! The subtle traces of images really can give a BG wonderful flavor to any scrappers pallet! Hehe Food analogies sorry just had a bit to eat! LOL The papers are from the May Flying Unicorn KOM and a few scraps laying around on my desk of past kits. The flowers are all Petaloo. Winning combo I think!
