Scraplift Swap!

I've been missing my scrappy mojo since like for ever closed.  I was messing around on Facebook when a post from Claire popped up - did anyone want to swap layouts to scraplift?  Perfect, I thought, I can scrap one of her layouts to get me going again...

Here are the results:

My original and Claire's take

Claire's original and my take

And here it is in a little more detail...

I used a background stamp from Simon Says Stamp and third, fourth and fifth generation stamping.  I journalled a lot underneath the vellum heart, just writing over the top of the previous layer so none of it is legible.

The sequins are SpiegelMom Scraps Build A Snowman and the stars are Cocoa Vanilla Studio.  I was beginning to wonder if I had upset Claire as I was sewing.  I don't like hand sewing on layouts and I reinforced to myself why - I needled myself.  I'm used to sticking a needle in my finger but this time I got my boob!!!

And although I am not the world's greatest stamper I really like this stamping off effect.  I hope to be getting more use from my stamps from now on!

 As it happens the pink and blue match the Simon Says challenge so I am entering it.
