Debbees Cd's free download competition

Here's my latest using the Debbees free papers over at http://debbeescdsblogspot.blogspot.com/2012/01/month-of-romance.html

I really hope you will pop over and have a go, for yourself, mine is going to be linked to it, but I have already stated  that I do not want to be considered for any prize this month as I won last month, but I still enjoyed working with the papers. The reward is a free Debbee's CD of your choice, and they really are some beautiful disks!

 For this card I used all 4 of the pages available, and have very little left now!
Most of it I printed onto supersmooth paper, but the main image on the front page I also duplicated and printed off on Photo card.

I had an idea in mind when I was printing the pages off, as in all honesty I couldn't choose which bits to use and which bits to discard, so I made it easy for my self and used all of it!
I took a sheet of white A3 card, and firstly stuck the insert onto the card, right at the right hand edge of the A3 sheet. Yes I know it was a strange way to begin, but carry on reading and you'll find out why!!

I scored the insert on my hougie, and then folded the card in, so that the insert was covered.
Next I scored where the fold met the rest of the blank card and folded that over the top.
Then I took the paper with the bubbles on, and stuck that to the outside. I trimmed off the excess , not much of that left, and then cut the main central image out and matted it onto some Lilac card stock.  The I trimmed the piece I had printed onto Photo card, and mounted that with some Foam pads, over the central portion of the panel.
Next step was to tear the 2 remaining papers, and expose the white fibres, which I then distressed with some Big and Juicy Vibrant Primary ink, trying to pick up the purpley pink strip in the centre of the pad.
One slight problem, I had torn a little bit short, so although you can just see a hint of distressed paper, I had to cover it with a couple of purple and Lilac ribbons, to cover the
white bits in the middle, trying to get in there with a distressing tool, would have been impossible!!

   Sorry for the big gap but blogger wont let me write in it!!

I then cut out and mounted the block that is a kaleidoscope effect onto some more of the lilac card, and then on top of that I also matted and layered the 2 different blocks from the same sheet with a gap between them. On the top I finally added the separate heart to which I have added some Crystal Glaze and some Purple Cosmic shimmer drawing ink.
I then turned my attention to the inside of the front flap, and added the remaining torn papers .
I still felt it needed a little bit more so found my roll of  Letraset Letraline tape, and used a peel off colour pen to change the colour from Silver to Purple. and added that around the edges of the cover page, and two strips on the inside of the cover page.
I hope you like it, as I definatley do, xx
