Scrapbook Page With Watermark Ink and Metallic Paint

Scrapbooking VersaMark Embossing Machine Stitching
This page started with the colors teal and copper. I was inspired by a photo on Pinterest. I usually don’t start a pages with a color scheme, but  a vision for this page wasn’t coming together for me. So I tried a different approach.

Inspiration Metallic

I started with a piece of teal cardstock and stamped it with VersaMark ink. VersaMark ink is an embossing ink, but it can also be used for watermark, tone-on-tone stamping. This technique works better with some colors than others so test a scrap or the backside first to see how it will work with your cardstock color. I used a polka dot stamp from Prima to add more interest to the cardstock.

I cut a piece of kraft cardstock to frame the title and the photo. I love kraft cardstock in general, but I particularly love it on fall pages. When going through my fall themed papers, I found this older one from Bo Bunny. The colors worked perfectly with my page. It was on a sheet of printed border strips, the bottom of the strip was wavy, but the top edge was straight. I love the wavy look, so I cut the top edge wavy too. I think it adds a nice movement to the page, like the fall wind blowing gently through the trees.

I LOVE metallic paint, and one of my favorite colors is the metallic copper. The paint I used  was from Folk Art. I used a foam brush to apply the paint to the tree stamp. The tree stamp is a large foam stamp mounted on an acrylic sheet made be Prima.

I waited for the paint to dry and mounted the photo. I assembled the page. Then stamped the title word, Hayride, with VersaMark ink and applied copper embossing powder. Then I used my embossing pen to write, going on a, and applied black embossing powder. I LOVE my embossing pen.

Then I stamped embellishment circles and a journaling spot using three different ink colors for interest.

I finished off the whole page by adding some stitching. I used both zigzag and straight stitching. I kept it neat on the edges and flowing straight stitches on the border strip.
