The most wonderful story

I visited the site of Scrap-it-Lah, and their November challenge is quite appealing to me.

The requirements?

All layouts must incorporate the following (thereafter any extras may be added):

1.  Layers - at least 6
2.  Stamping and/or embossing
3.  Tags or journaling cards incorporated into the design (not necessarily used to journal on but can be if you choose)

Well, I'm not used to layering 6 items.  So this is indeed a "challenge" for me.

The Sketch 58 of Sketchabilities helped me carry out Scap-it-Lah's November challenge.

So here is my take:

I did lots of layering on this one (whew! ).

I also made stamping all over the base page with Glitz Design then the top with Technique Tuesday.

See the gold bird cage in the tag?  It was heat embossed.  I used Pink Paislee stamp then the Ranger Gold Embossing Tinsel.

Some other details...

I love this one!  The clock (Sizzix Weathered Clock) was first coated with Gesso, then painted with pink Crackle paint and finished with Tattered Angels' Glimmer Glam.

This doily was made from Paper Trey's die.  The sides were coated again with Glimmer Glam then finished with Liquid Pearl after gluing the picture. 

I hope you like it. 

Oops, before I forgot.  The winner for Scap-it-Lah's November challenge will receive this very beautiful Studio Calico Tatting Kit!

I hope the team will pick my entry.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!  Ciao!
