ARTastic - Brothers United

I posted this layout on fb a week ago and completely forgot to create the post for ARTastic.
I must have been having a senior's moment I think!!!
The challenge is all about backgrounds and that's what I concentrated on with this layout, even preparing it before I'd chosen the photo.

I've used a fabulous ScrapFx alpha stencil along with some stamping and embossing with Stampendous Embossing Powder (I love it a lot).  Also on this layout is some 2Crafty chipboard embossed with the same powder and a gorgeous Charms Creations Handmade Star.

Here's the inspiration photo from ARTastic.


  1. This looks awesome! love all the back ground details!

  2. This is fabulous! LOVE that alpha bg.....and the way you've picked up the colour from our ARTastic inspiration picture is really neat.....I don't know HOW you manage to do a bg before you pick a photo, but as I've said works for you, so why not!!! Thanks for joining in - glad you remembered to link it!!!!
