Howdy, peeps! Phew, it's Friday...with another storm brewing for this weekend! A good time to stay inside and craft, right?! Anyway, it's time for another As You See It challenge, and we have a pretty one..here you go:
SU has some beautiful Rose glimmer paper and I decided to pair it with the marblized paper from the Petal Promenade DSP. The Flourish thinlets provided my main embellishment:
Iseparated the backing from the glimmer paper and added an Adhesive Sheet layer before diecutting. It makes it a little easier to go through the Big Shot, but those little "chads" are still a bit challenging! My Big Shot Die Brush helps though--along with a sticky lint roller...just lay your diecut piece on top and poke the pieces on to the roller! My friend Joanne had a beautiful card where she created a frame and let the background paper peek through (you can see it HERE), so I decided to give that a try, creating my frame from Very Vanilla cardstock and the new (WONDERFUL) Rectangle Stitched dies:
I stamped a sentiment in Merry Merlot from Flourishing Phrases, added a little glimmer enamel dot to one of the flowers, then mounted everything on a Merry Merlot card base. I love the deeper shade of rose with the lighter Rose glimmer paper!
So what metallics will you use for our challenge? Foil? Heat embossing? Metal accessories or DSP? There are lots of choices! Share your creation with us at As You See It...can't wait to see what you make!
Another couple of pix from the aquarium...doesn't this look like fun?
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
