Timeless Moments Layout - Blue Fern Studio's Challenge Sketch

I managed to get a little creative this weekend gone, and got to use some newly purchased chipboard from Blue Fern Studio's.  It was hard to pick which piece to use, but the 'Fancy Fob Watch' won. 

I have joined in with the Blue Fern Studio, September Sketch Challenge this month. You can find the details 'HERE', and the sketch below.

The image I have used is from a vintage cabinet card, they were very popular in years gone by - and always the most gorgeous, dreamy, images.  With the touch of blue in the image, I actually used some of the Blue Fern Studio packaging beneath the image, as it matched perfectly.  It really does have a gorgeous design on the packaging and I will be hoarding other packs, to re-use as well. 

I was very impressed with the quality of Blue Fern Studio's chipboard elements, it is a nice thickness and really took a beating with several layers of embossing/heat,and then paint as well.   I also, used a 'word' stamp across the chipboard, just to give a little more character to the piece.

The papers I used, are left over from my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store - FabScraps, Shabbylicious paper collection.  A full materials list can be found at the end of my post.

The background, was created using a hand-made stencil using the Silhouette Cameo, and some acetate.  It was an interesting process, and one I would attempt again. 

Thanks for calling in for a visit, hope you have a wonderful day/evening..
Sandie
