Collage Challenge

Kim's challenge was to use a collage as inspiration. When I approached this challenge, I thought I would make it artsy/messy, but when I saw this chalkboard paper by Fancy Pants, I decided to do something different. I had random Instagram photos from our vacation and new the white-framed prints would look fabulous on the dark background.
I stamped the chalkboard paper with Brilliance ink pads to create subtle dimension using Christy Tomlinson stamps. I then grabbed some Cocoa Daisy stamps and embossing powder and went crazy! lol One thing I love about collages are cut-out words, so I created that effect with paper, embossing, and a collection of mini alphas.
