Alp Horn

Sorry for the bad scan. These pages really do match up! Last fall my hubby and I went on a Rhine River Cruise through The Netherlands, Germany, France and ended up in Switzerland. It truly was the trip of a lifetime. In the pages above we took a cog train up the Swiss Alps just outside of Lucerne.
For the chipboard I recolored it with 3 different colors of ink. I used Black, Cranberry and Bamboo. I started with the Bamboo (the lightest Color) and sponged the entire Chipboard letter. Then with Cranberry Ink I sponged the bottom 2/3 of the letter going over the bamboo at the bottom. Then with Black I sponged only the bottom 1/3. I adhered them to the layout with glue dots (the greatest invention ever!).
I also used the Stardust paper packet with this layout but I did not want the bright stars so I used the backside of the paper...a really cool feature of Close To My Heart paper...Great multi toned paper on one side and a monochromatic color on the backside...
All supplies are CTMH unless otherwise noted:
