Hey Everyone

Kraft Plus have a great challenge this month - THINK BIG 
So you can use anything BIG - photos, embellishments, titles it's endless

I created a layout of my friends Great Danes - Vincent (the BIG One) and Roland the new baby 
who are now brothers

I started by spreading some black gesso across the Kraft cardstock with a palette knife then used a moroccan patterned stencil with modelling paste - while that was wet I added some Bavarian Blue embossing powder from Lindy's Stamp Gang and Candied Apple oxide ink pad from Ranger  
I love how versatile these ink pads are you can use them as a stamp pad, sprinkled with water to make a water colour or as a paint like I have done here 

I love these saying stickers from Tim Holtz there's always a saying that's approriate

I used a few different types of embellishments to add to the layers

Thanks for visiting and I hope you will be back soon xx
