Shine Bright - May 2017 Hip Kit

Hi there.  I absolutely adore everything about the May Hip Kit.  I have fallen head over heals in love with the Shimelle Little by Little collection.  This collection contains my absolute favourite colours.  I made this page of Leane using the kit.  The only paper I added from another kit is the black and white stripes paper designed by Kim Watson,  the turquoise paper is from the February kit.  Here is my page:

Supplies used:  Patterned paper:  Shimelle (Little by Little); Celebr8 (Chit Chat); Amy Tan (On a Whim); Maggie Holmes (Chasing Dreams); Cardstock:  American Craft; Wood Veneer title:  Hip Kit Exclusive, Studio Calico (hearts); Chipboard:  Blue Fern Studio (Dashwood Bouquet); Flowers; Prima; Rubber charm: Maggie Holmes; Puffy Heart: Heidi Swapp; Die cuts:  Maggie Holmes; Tag: Pretty Little Studio; Embroidery Floss: DMC; Other Mediums:  Neocolor11 to colour the chipbord; Embossing Powder: Tsukineko (clear), Lindy's (midnight teal).

I used a sketch by my favourite sketch designer Laura Whitaker:
Some close ups:

 Some yummy paper layers beneath the photo.  The photo is popped up on foam.

 I fussy cut a full sheet of the Shimelle flowers and here I used some of them.  The Prima flowers were toned down with some gesso.

 Another little cluster on the left side of the page with the title.  I coloured the Blue Fern chippy with Neocolor 11 crayons and then sealed it with clear embossing powder.

 I do adore the hand stitching...but then you know that!  I added a tag and a label to the top of the photo.

 I love how it all turned out.
