Of course I can't do anything as directed so I turned my card vertical and did a small design rather than 1/2 of the card. Other than that, I am proud of me for getting this one close!
I started with the Mustard Colored Aluminum. I embossed the lizard (LM2004) using the Cuttlebug then added more depth and detail with the metal tools. The Mosaic Background (LJ901)was added. Then the entire image was lightly sanded. It was amazing to then flatten out the background and see the lines from where the stencil had been. More sanding/taking off of color was done with the fiberglass brush to really expose the aluminum. Then more working with the metal/metal tools, to make the image puff out. The word was added with Gold Embossing Paste! (LS89)
We all had so much fun and it was also great to go to The Cottage Stamper in St. Charles, Illinois and do some demos and hang out with Nancy!
Hope to hear from some of you gals that took the classes and were at the demonstration at The Cottage Stamper! See you next time!
