KNK September Kit Reveal #1

I am having the most fun with this kit! This Heidi Swapp Inkable chipboard was the last thing I used -- I put it off because I only had one sheet and I was afraid I would wreck it LOL! But I finally decided (last night at about nine p.m., mind you) that I should go for it. I loved the result so much that I decided to use this layout for my reveal today instead of the other one I did two weeks ago! The Inkable chipboard comes as a plain white sheet, but if you run your hand over it you can feel a slightly raised pattern on it. This pattern resists whatever medium you decide to use on it. For mine, I used a sunflower doodle template as a mask and then sprayed three colors of Glimmer Mist over the top. When I removed the mask and blotted the excess mist away not only did I have the negative sunflower but also the beautiful pattern on the Inkable chipboard sheet. Really fun!! I had a hard time putting paper and embellishments over the top of it LOL!

The next layout was the first one I did with the kit. I had to use that gorgeous Bazzil embossed cardstock (which is in the cardstock add-on) right away :) I am really happy with how this turned out. The rosy pink color in the patterned papers is understated but, paired with my little Gracie in a pretty pink dress, it really pops! The butterflies and stitching bring a certain motion to the layout which I feel compliments the photos of my little dancing girl.
I'll have more to share in a week or so. Thanks for having a look!
