Good morning Squashettes! Gail here this morning with more inspiration and a reminder for the Geometric AND metallic challenge.
Jo and I are so happy that so many of you have found us, left lovely comments and linked up your beautiful makes. There is one week left so grab those embossing folders and get squashy. Tell you friends, cos being squashy is more fun with more friends.
Today I was feeling all pacific so I have used a very lovely Sizzix folder from the Mermaid Dream set. This folder comes with some dies, but I decided to add Rubber Dance stamps whale from the Whale Wishes set, stamped, heat embossed and fussy cut. I double checked, scallops are geometric and comply with the rule of Golden Proportions! Well, there you go!! And there's a few spirals and a star just in case LOL.
I embossed a piece of blue metal sheet that I first cut with Stamplorations stitch rectangle die. Usually best to do any die cutting, stamping or heat embossing of your paper/metal before using the embossing folder, unless of course you are doing one of those very cool double emboss techniques. I have highlighted the texture with a blue Stazon ink pad for added contrast.
There's still plenty of time to play along with Challenge #1, so why not break-out your folders and your metallic sheets and come play along! Thanks for dropping by. Hugz
