My first Scraps of Darkness kit arrived last week and on first impressions – I was not too impressed. Now that's not to say the kit wasn’t fabulous its just that it wasn’t ‘me’ but then that was the idea behind subscribing to the kit in the first place, to take me away from the pretty pastels, the florals, the blooms and such like.
So over the weekend I took part in a Cyber Crop on UKScrappers (LO’s from that fun to follow!) and in between challenges and compulsory Bingo! I played with my SOD kit.
This is the result – Im still not sure whether I like or not, its certainly different from anything I’ve used before. The range of papers are Bo Bunny’s Et Cetera. Everything from the papers to the blooms to the alphas has had some inky done to it and then the chipboard alpha’s and scrolls had a dose of crackle medium too.
The photo is an old one which was actually a ‘proof’ from a photographer but we didn’t buy any photo’s from him as they weren’t that good! That said, I always kept this small pic because I think there is something cute about it. I altered the colour to sepia in Photoshop (something Im not very good at, but hey I try!)
I know I was suppose to do something away from the ‘norm’ with the kit but I kept being drawn to add blooms! They had a dose of distress ink to make them all blend with each other. I do like the effects of the crackle medium its the first time I’ve used it even though I have had the bottle for well over a year!
So, there you have it my first LO with the Scraps of Darkness kit! There is ton’s more stash to this kit, I have only just scratched the surface. The other papers are from Teresa Collins and whilst still not what I would normal buy they seem a little less daunting than these Bo Bunny ones. Watch this space there will be more.
Thanks for stopping by,
