Party Time!

Party Time

Woop woop! Happy Friday, peeps! The weekend is HERE! (Well, after a few hours of work anyway!) :)

Today I'm partying on with more Clearly Besotted Stamps sneaky peeks. All new products will be available for purchase from Saturday 5th April at 21:00 GMT.

Party Time Close Up

Today's card features two new stamp sets: Time to Celebrate and Time to Celebrate Additions. I had a good play with some new goodies too in the form of Distress Inks, embossing paste and a Tim Holtz stencil. :)

tips and tricks

  • There's no rule that you have to use the hole in the top of a die tag. Here I simply used twine and a peg to secure my sentiment rather than thread it through the top hole.
  • I placed my stencil so that the rays emit from the tag. This helps the background direct the eyes to the tag.
  • To add texture to my tag, I simply splattered water and water mixed with gold Perfect Pearls over my Distress inked tag. I then carried on the splatter theme using the same technique on the background with gold Perfect Pearls mixed with water.

Pop across to Stephanie's for more sneak peeks from the DT - you won't leave disappointed! :)

Before I leave to kick off the weekend, just another tiny reminder to ask you to vote for me if you like what you see here as this blogeroo has been shortlisted in a competition to find the UK's best arts and crafts blog. Any vote is really appreciated! :)
