Echo Park with Moonie

Hi there girls
Lisa here with you today 

Have you checked out this gorgeous funky range from Echo Park?  

I have used the cool Echo Park Apothecary Emporium Hypnotic Stripes paper and the Stripe Toad paper.  These go really cool together and very masculine.  

I have even got a bit more adventurous with my Glimmer Mist in the Tiger Lily shade and thrown a bit up in the corners.. I'm normally pretty careful with this stuff but on this page it just goes great.. The grungier the better.




And check out these new Admit One tickets...! I love them.  They are so totally vintage and I love anything vintage.  These are so cheap and look great on any page. 10... Yes 10 for $1.20.


I have also done a bit of embossing with my favorite embossing color.  I have used the Scrapware Chipboard Antique Lowercase Alphas Mini.  Love these.  Look how great they come up embossed.  

I have used Emboss Embossing Ink Pad which is super easy to use.  Just dab your letters in the ink pad and then sprinkle your favorite embossing powder all over the letters, shake shake shake, then get out your heat gun and apply heat until you see the embossing powder set or melted.  
Its really amazing watching this process take place.  

I have added one of my favorite black scroll felt stars to set the scene.  These funk up any boy fun page.  Above that I have added a wee strip of the Black Velvet ribbon with a silicon swirls.  This at the moment is as cheap as chips....


And of course to make the page I have used the cool scrapware cogs that Tracy has got in ATM... I have just left one raw, inked up the edge a bit and the other one I embossed with the silver embossing powder.  Just to finish off the page with another addition of texture I have added in the cute as Mandarin Bakers Twine.  I love this stuff.  So cute.
 

AND

Look what I come up with using just the smallest amount of Echo Park Apothecary Emporium Skull and Bones paper.  I am going to put this away for Corey's birthday in February.  Thought it was a good idea instead of a card kids are not really interested in.  I know he will think this rocks!!!


I think I will even do up these for his birthday invites.. Pretty cool for boys or girls I think!! Well pretty paper for girls 

All I have used is the Skull and Bones paper, a slice of the Graphic 45 ABC Primer paper collection, one of my2angels decorative pins which I have just punched out a piece of the cool Echo Park Apothecary Emporium Spider Webs paper and adhered it to the pin.  Used some scraps of lettering for the HAPPY BIRTHDAY and his name and finally glimmer misted up the Scrapware barbed wire flourish (back in stock on Monday). 

And waaalaaa... We have a cool birthday card for our boy .

So go ahead and get cracking.. I'm off to make a heap more of these for birthday boys with this cool paper.
Take care and keep up that scrapping
