Did you have a good weekend?
Mine was pretty mellow, but I did get happy mail this week in the form of a box from Emerald Creek!
I ordered some of Seth Apter's Baked Texture to try!!!
On the first project, a little wall canvas, I used the Chunky Rust and Deep Sea
It was cool when I opened the Chunky Rust because it looks like a cross between embossing and flocking powder. It gives really fun and funky results.
I paired it with Fossilized Amber, Pistachio and Fired Brick Distress Oxide Inks
The canvas was painted in Acrylics and then rubbed with some Spanish Copper Rub and Shine
I made the heart embellie by cutting a heart in a Primitive shape, pressing it into the versamark pad and embossing. I did this twice to get it a little thicker. I added a touch of wire to add it little more interest.
In order to get the splashes of Deep Sea Embossing powder on the Canvas and Tag, I simply sprinkled it on and then heated from underneath. It melted like a dream!!
I finished off the project by stamping the Today sentiment from the Journal Jargon 3 set available at Impression Obsession Stamps
Did you know they carry a whole line of Seth Apter Stamps?
I couldn't just stop with one project and I have to tell you I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Patina Oxide Baked Texture!!! On this piece, I combined it with a touch of Chunky Rust.
Same Inks, just a little different application!
This colour combination goes perfectly in my Beach themed room~
For this one, I added a good amount of the Baked texture to the tag and again, heated from underneath. Then I inked up the not negotiable stamp from Seth's Post Office set in Versamark and pressed it into the hot embossing powder. I also pressed in the Stratosphere stamp, which is one I used over and over again! Again, the sentiment is from the Journal Jargon 3 set
I enjoyed using the Baked Texture so much I had to order the other colours yesterday!!!!
Hope they come soon, so I can show you some more projects!!!
I'm entering both projects into the Emerald Creek Dares Challenge
The theme is Lucky or Love
I'm Lucky 'cause my Emerald Creek goodies arrived this week and LOVE LOVE LOVE them!
