Manor House Creations - Bold and Beautiful

Hi Cathy here, with a LO to share using the Believe paper range and Spring Collection from Manor House Creations.

I decided to go with a bold colour combo of red, black and green on this page.  I started by using the Believe - Make Believe pp as my background, which I altered by masking, stamping and adding some paint splats.  I am loving washi tape at the moment, and it always seems to find its way onto my LO's.  I just tore 2 different tapes to match my colour palette and overlapped them around the edges of the pp.
To frame my photo I layered some stamped book paper, diecuts, a tag and a fussy cut border strip from the Believe - Lace pp.  I also layered a smaller version on the top right, to which I added a fussy cut butterfly image from the Believe - Elements Cards pp.  To tie in with my colour scheme, I painted the leaves and edges of my butterfly with some Luminarte pigments and a little bit of Viva croco crackling

To finish off I clustered a few of the new Spring Collection flowers down the left hand side of my photo.  I altered the large black flower from the Layout Pack - Classy by pulling out the staments and replacing with a bling centre to make the flower pop. I find the Vinettes very versatile, as you can keep them whole or cut them up to make them go further.
