Paper Smooches Guest Designer - Round 2

Hello again!

It's my second week as January's Guest Designer over at Paper Smooches. This time I went completely CAS with one of Kim's new stamp sets - Silver and Gold, together with the new Awesome die:

I die cut the sentiment and covered it with a heap of Versamark, then smothered it in a mixture of pewter and navy embossing powders, heated it again and smothered it some more. It kind of looks like it's made out of metal don't you think? I stamped a light blue scattering of stars for the background, then added a couple of starry rows and flags. There's a couple of little, separate triangles in this set so I used one of those to add a little depth to the flags. A few splashes of 'paint' and it was all done.

Make sure you hop on over to the shop won't you - heaps of inspiration on how to use these new sets and dies, you'll be grabbing that credit card in no time!

Thanks for popping by,

Claire x

  2. Cool, graphic, and full of bold impact, Claire ... love that die cut ... it really does look metallic! Hope temperatures have cooled down a little ... if not, you can always send a bit of warm over here! Hugs, Anita :)
