Delight - May 2017 Hip Kit - Stuck sketches

Hallo there.  I had so much fun today in my studio.  I was so in the mood to play with pretty papers and at the same time take part in the Stuck sketch for 1 November 2017.  I used a beautiful photo that I took with my cell phone when we were on our last leg of the Secret Scrapbook Event 2017.  Here is my page:

Supply list:  Patterned paper:  Dear Lizzy (Lovely Day); Cardstock:  American Craft; Wood Veneer: Hip Kit Exclusives; Chipboard: Celebr8; Metal charm: Upikit; Flair: Feed your Craft; Enamel dots:  Echo Park; Die cuts:  Dear Lizzy (Lovely Day); Embroidery Floss: DMC; Texture Paste: Daler Rowney; Stencil: Tim Holtz; Embossing Powder:  Wow Rose Gold; Other:  Silhouette Cameo (the scallop border).

Laura's lovely sketch:

Some Close ups:
 I used a chipboard frame that I heat embossed with rose gold embossing powder.  Lots of layers with among others a doily from my stash, a Dear Lizzy camera die cut and a flair layered over top.

 I applied some texture paste through a Tim Holtz stencil and the decision to use rose gold for the heat embossing was made because of the rose gold in the layered hot air balloon.

 I  heat embossed the delicate wood veneer words with rose gold as well.  I made the tag with a scrap of paper and the little metal hot air balloon charm was in my stash and by Upikit.

 A page just wouldn't be complete without a bit of hand stitching.

This photo shows you more dimension and the sparkly bits.
