Hello everyone!! So happy to be visiting Emerald Creek today as a guest! This month's dare is "Anything Goes" and these are always some of my faves since you can create anything! I almost went with a beachy theme since I'm still on a beach high after my trip to Nova Scotia and PEI in June. But then I realized I had some new Seth Apter dies and I wanted to use those too! So a bit of oceany in the background with anchors then all about embossing powders and circles over that.
Here are a few step out pics.
|I used the Tim Holtz tissue paper and stamped EC's anchor in Watering Can and Black Archival from Ranger.|
|I used my embossing pen to colour over the anchors then embossed them in Gun Metal and Hammered Metal.|
|Hammered Metal is one of my all time faves!!|
|I used the Seth Apter Sheild dies to cut out all these pieces. I cut them out of cardstock and some TH adhesive backed cork. I used some Hammered Metal and Rose Gold on the cork piece and just love the texture I got.|
|Seriously love how the Hammered Metal melts and creates texture all on it's own! On the circle piece on the left, I used Hammered Metal on gel medium and did not heat it so I could have another texture in there.|
|Top has heated Hammered Metal and the circle underneath has the unmelted Hammered metal.|
