With this month's "Hearts for Haiti" campaign going on I wanted to share this layout I did with a great group of ladies last November.
The beautiful paper featured is Close to My Heart's now retired Life Delights Level 2 kit. However, in keeping with the heavy distressing I wanted to showcase with these pages, I added in some luscious Chocolate Textured Cardstock.
I used lots of Chocolate ink to do some leathering to the base cardstock. Next, I added ink to the paper edges, Colonial White Craft Buttons, and the pink Just Blooms paper flower with a sponge dauber.
For the Chocolate Textured Cardstock, I used the sanding block from my distressing kit to make the white-core of the cardstock show in the texture of the photo mats.
