Here's the second layout that I created for Snobby Walrus Paper Crafts with their May kit. I think I'm in love with those 7 gypsies keys.
I like to tuck rub-ons in little corners. Sometimes that little bit extra is all that's needed.
I made these flowers with the beautiful mulberry paper from the kit. After I had the paper rolled up and glued, I brushed on the "Spring Rain" glimmer mist included in the kit. I used a paint brush to get the colour a little more intense, as this is one of the more subtle glimmer mists. The lace tied around the key was also dyed with the glimmer mist.
Since this page was about jewelry, I wanted to glitz up the title. Distress Stickles in "Rock Candy" did the trick. Just the right amount of glitter.
