July Creating with Helen - Memories, Hello and three ATC's

Hello and welcome back to Scrapmatts.
It's Helen with you today.

First I'm sharing a layout which I created for the Kraft+ July challenge.
I've used Fussy cut roses, a background of roses, a rose stencil and the stunning 
Scrapmatts rose chipboard.
I used acrylic paints on the gorgeous String circles Roses  and layered them up with
 pretty papers are from Kaisercraft, the High Tea collection. 
The fussy cut roses are from "Devonshire"
The stencil is by Tim Holtz THS075. 
The background paper is "Tea leaves"
The little title I just swiped with watercolour ink.

Next I'm sharing a layout which was a combined Scrapmatts/CSI challenge.
Scrapmatts is kindly sponsoring CSI again this month.

 I wet embossed the gorgeous frame to highlight my photo.  
The little wooden stars were added for one of the evidence clues. 
The butterfly was given a water colour wash; another of the evidence clues.
The script word was heavily embossed with UTEE and the chipboard held up perfectly.

Next up is a trio of ATC cards. 
These small chipboard shapes measure 2.5" x 3.5" and are lovely for a little gift 
or to dress up the front of  a 6" x 4" card.
