Creative Expressions Saturday - Diagonal Teal



P



Morning everyone. Here I am with my latest Design Team creation for Creative Expressions.

I used Sue Wilson Diagonals-labyrinth die with the smaller die from the refined rectangular frame set for the accents cut from CE Teal foundation cardstock. The sentiment is from the CE Elegant Sentiments Clear Stamp set and is embossed using CE ivory embossing powder and cut out with Sue Wilson pierced tag dies.

I used some CE Aqua twinkles behind the main die and on the edges of the accents. I could have used texture paste, but felt this gave a lighter look, with just a hint of the sparkle. I squeezed some onto the card and then spread it with a palette knife.

You can see the sparkle a little better on this close up.


For the final finishing touch I used two CE vintage silver button.
Thanks for looking.
