White with One for July 2014

Hullo my friends! Today I'm sharing my White with One challenge entry - you needed to use DUCK EGG BLUE this month. 
I went a bit different, as we'd just picked our oranges & I wanted to make a page that I could display on my little stand in our lounge room.....thus, an A4 was born!
 I used wood butterflies [Studio Calico that I got to play with c/- Scrap365!] then OVER heat embossed them to get the 'wrinkly' look...the little metal overlay is c/- Monica Brady...thought it worked quite nicely!
 ...back to my fave 'feather bouquets'....with a delish flair from 3rd Eye Crafts...& that back ground brick work is also one of their lovely masks! The lemons are also treated the same way with embossing powder - I've added a little blue to the stems & leaves.
And here is my full page. I must admit to being REALLY happy with this page. It turned out how I imagined...how often does THAT happen? Well, for me - rarely;)
 Thanks as always for the time it takes you to leave a comment - I really love getting them!!!!!
Cheers ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
GOODIES FROM & THANKS TO:

  1. A gorgeous topic to scrap; our orange tree has almost finished for the season. Yours look lovely in the wicker basket. The duck egg blue contrasts with them perfectly and the outdoor them with the bricks, butterflies and branches looks perfect. Congrats on the win recently :D

  19. Beautiful page Lizzy. I love the contrast of the photo against the page colours. I tried to get into the WW1 challenge but I struggled with the Duck Egg Blue colour. OVER heat embossing? What a great idea. I've been heat embossing on my cards lately so I'll have to experiment with that technique. Thank you for being so inspiring!
