Olivia in Black and White

Well, I finally completed the scrapbook page that I started for the Just Add Ink #12 Challenge.  When I was trying to complete it for the challenge, I just couldn't get it working the way I wanted it to.  Nothing seemed right and I just couldn't get the look I was after.

So I left it for a couple of days and when I came back to it, I realised that what I wanted was a subtle background... and none of the DSP's were doing the job.  So I created my own subtle DSP using my Baroque Border wheel with a Versamark ink cartridge - I know, they're not for sale!  I'll post a tutorial on how to make one in a few days. 

But for now, here's my completed page!  The photo is of my almost 3 year old daughter, Olivia.

I'm really happy with how it turned out - I'd love to know what you think!

Stamps: Baroque Border wheel
Cardstock - Kraft, Not Quite Navy, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip
Designer Series Paper - Bella Bleu, Raspberry Tart
Accessories - On Board So Tweet, Rose Red Ribbon, So Saffron Ribbon, Chocolate Chip corduroy button, Scallop Border punch white gel pen



  1. So beautiful Danielle! Loving the versamark background. Who is the little cutie in the photo?

  2. yes I will have to agree with Paula, Very Beautiful.

  3. You should be proud..this is a beautiful page and your little girl is so beautiful as well.
    I've done the same thing where I will need to leave a page or card for a day or two and come back later to figure out what I need to do next or to change something.

  4. Lovely LO Danielle. Love the versamarked background!

  5. Your page is just beautiful and I am sure you are now pleased you left it for a few days so it would turn out just how you wanted it to rather than forcing it to be created when you didn't feel it was exactly right. Great job!

  6. Danielle, I love the versa marked background. Can't wait to find out how you create the versa mark cartridge. Cute must go with the name Oilvia, my Olivia (9) is cute too. TFS. Cheers Donna Zammit
