Venice - Couture Creations

Hi there everyone, sharing my layout that I have created using the latest Couture Creations products. These dies and embossing folders are all now available at your local scrapbooking store also
using the new release Couture Creations. 

I also created a very quick card too, but first my layout.

"Life Moments" layout

The photo was taken in Venice, riding inside a gondola, travelling down the water canals. I don't know if you can see but inside the gondola was an etching of a picture of the landscape of Venice. So beautiful and will always be a great memory for me.

Using the dies
Everyday Essentials - Autumn Leaf C0723112
for all the leaves under the bulk white flowers, and

Lace Pockets die - The Blandford C0724236 for the frame around the edges of the photo, which I cut in half.

Also using the purple colour papers from the
Heart's Ease papers

All the lovely flowers are from the Couture Creations 
Bulk white flowers collection.

The background was achieved by using embossing ink on the embossing folder, just like a stamp.
Then gently sprinkling gold embossing powder of the embossed images and applying the heat gun to melt the powder.

I love the gold against the black effect.

The embossing folder is from
Ulitmate Craft Mistletoe Magic  Embossing folder - White Christmas ULT157306

in the corner edges of the photo is the cut framed from the die
Lace Pockets die - The Blandford C0724236 

Adding some of the bulk flowers from Couture Creations
and using the C0724234 -The Hanslope Die cut.  
I cut the little flowers from this die set for an extra touch of small flowers.

On the leaves there is a touch of gold paint for more added sparkle.

Next is a simple and quick card , a very rustic and simple layered card - using the same embossing folder for the background, Ulitmate Craft Mistletoe Magic  Embossing folder - White Christmas ULT, which I gently inked the raised images, with an ink pad.

Using also the The Dorsetshire Die cut for the centre edges and
the centre white frame is from the
Lace Pockets die - The Chantilly

Another gorgeous bulk flower in the centre.
Slightly coloured with some purple inks

I really like how you've used that combo of colours on your card - looks fabulous! And your page. Sigh. Venice again!!!! LOOOOOOOVE the gold on the black, too - looks fabulous. I really like your flowers. I wish I could 'do' flowers better....but we're all different, right? Be a boring old world if we were, I guess:):)
