Hello everyone! Today I have a fun and colorful challenge for you! :)
I've been loving my Fancy Pants Designs Brag Pads lately. Whether I use them for my Project Life, my Scrapbook layouts, mini albums or cards, they so inspire me!
Today, I wanted to show you how you can easily alter them a tiny bit with Distress inks.
All you need is your favorite Fancy Pants Designs products, esp. Brag Pads, Distress inks and a piece of cut'n'dry foam.
Trendsetter Glamorous paper / Trendsetter Brag Pads / Trendsetter Coral Corrugated paper / Trendsetter Decorative Bags / Trendsetter Decorative Tags / Trendsetter button Set / Trendsetter Ephemera Pack
What I like about the Brag Pads is that the thickness and quality of the paper allows you to distress/alter them with inks or mists.
Here, I simply used a cut'n'dry foam and 3 different colors of Distress inks and added a few tones of colors to three Brag Pad cards. All three got glued on the right side of my layout, creating a geometric column where I added my photo and embellishments.
Be sure to color your cards on a kraft sheet, going in circles so that you don't have bright and unaesthetic ink marks.
You can also distress any Fancy Pants Designs tags with the same technique! The paper is even thicker which is even better!
All you have to do afterwards is build your layout and LAYER everything!
I glued the Brag Pad cards first, then my photo.
I then added my little decorative bag with a tag inside and sewed everything together.
Then I played with some Ephemera Pack die cuts and layered them together too.
Add a few buttons here and there and place your title (cut with my Cameo) and ta-da!
I would LOVE to see what you come up with! Show me your fantastic layouts! :)
