Scraps of Darkness Reveal *August Kit*

  I think this is the most exciting day of the month for me....Reveal Day!!!  Today I want to share with you, the latest Scraps of Darkness Kit called Envy.  Only Scraps of Darkness would do a switch up so drastic, going from bright and bold colors last month to these much softer hues.  This kit is full of romance and packed with beauty.  This kit contains the new Chanteuse Collection from Kaisercraft, new papers from The Robin's Nest, Zva, some fabulous Mistables from Pink Paislee and more.  Don't forget we have tons of wonderful items in the add-ons.

This is the sketch provided with the Envy Kit by Suepup.  It is so elegant and glamorous.

Here is my take on Suepup's sketch, called "Pure Love".  This photo was taken at Christmas time in 2009 of my family, so I wanted this page to be rich and sparkly.  These Robin's Nest papers are full of glitter and dazzle.  I used some gold items from a previous kit to add more festive cheer.

This lovely beauty is Prima, surrounded by Petaloos.  I used the Versa Magic Ink pad to color this Mistable die cut and added one of the Making Memories brads to the middle of it.
 See how it sparkles.
I feel in love with these Kasiercraft papers.  Of course I had just the right photos of my puppies to use for this page.  I call this page "Reflections" due to the mirrors and how my puppies look alike.  I did a lot of fussy cutting, painting and stitching for this shabby chic look.  Angel and K-Oz May 4, 2011.

 This clock is a Scrapmatt chippie from the SOD shoppe.  I used both of the Lindy's mists that came in the color add-on.  These posies from Kaisercraft are gorgeous.
This butterfly is another Scrapmatt chippie I got from the SOD shoppe.  I used some of Lindy's Magicals that came in the color add-on to paint the butterfly.  I also added the beads and diamond dust.

I rolled up the paper to tuck in some of the glittery Petaloo flowers and pink roses (from my stash).

Once I saw these Robin's Nest papers with the dark colors, I had to make a Gothic page.  This is called "U R The Key", referring to my dh and how he has my heart.  I did a lot of lacing in the bg and added a few things from previous SOD kits & my stash to make my dark look complete.  My dh and I in April 2007.

 This exquisite butterfly is Prima, along with these pretty flowers.  I used black ink for this Mistable die cut.  The maroon roses were some white ones colored by alcohol ink.
I love these Melissa Frances frames.  This one was white, that I painted with Black Gesso adding some of Lindy's Mist to give it a real shimmer.
The DA was from my stash, but I painted them, and used some more of Lindy's shimmer mist.  And it really stands out against the black.

 With all the green in this kit, I wanted to make a nature page mixed with vintage.  I had this photo of my mom and came up with "Make Your Own Pathway".  This photo was taken in the 1950's.
I combined the leaves with some different flowers adding a Blue Moon Charm of a Cookoo Clock.  The Zva bling is on part of the Mistables packaging.  The bird and nest is a Webster's journal card.

 I did some lacing using my scallop dot punch and ribbon from my stash.

The bird and branch are felt Mistables from Pink Paislee.  I used Lindy's Magicals paints to color them.
