Hanging out with Emerald Creek Today

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.

Don't forget to share your "Anything Goes" creation over at the Emerald Creek Blog for your chance to win a $50 GC!
