Happy birthday Mom

Well there's a lot going on in this layout. The challenge was to use mixed media, so I went on an inky stampy, tissue paper fuelled craft binge!

The photo is of Mom's birthday gingerbread house, we had such fun making it, and it went down a storm.

I cut a circle in the corner and punched some hearts to balance the page.

The mixed media page has lots of Distress Inks, splodged onto a craft mat, then spritzed with water. Then I dipped white card into the ink- it makes some gorgeous effects. If you try it, don't dip in more than one or twice, or the ink colours muddy. I tore up strips of tissue paper and glued them on randomly.

I overstamped with a script stamp in white, and a diamond and ink splat stamp in blue. The edge punch is from Martha Stewart, I've had it forever but I use it soooo much.
