June 3-9 Trend Watch Challenge at Paper Smooches
June 3-9 Trend Watch Challenge is about gold this week http://papersmoochessparks.blogspot.com/2013/06/june-3-9-trend-watch-challenge.html
I had some gold glitter paper that I bought a while ago because it was such a good deal and I just HAD to have it; I must have bought 20 sheets because I got so carried away invisioning what I was going to do with the gold one, the pink one, the turquoise one with the sequins on it… Well anyway, I used one so far!
I stamped the sheep from Paper Smooches’ Party Posse on the gold glitter paper with black Stazon. I fussy cut the coat out of the stamped sheep on the glitter paper; of course that meant I had to cut that little triangular piece between his ear and face, which really appeals to my OCD nature; oh yes, I had to figure out how to cut it at exactly the correct angle so I didn’t bump off any glitter, etc; life was good for a short while. Then I stamped him again on white paper and I colored his cute little face gold with a Sharper Poster Paint Metallic Gold pen. Then I fussy cut his face out; had a party with the ears! I don’t know why the gold looks like a different color on the nose; maybe because it ended up being a little thicker there. The paper is Studio Calico and the grass is a stamp I had, but you could just draw the grass in with a ultra fine point marker too.
The sentiment is the Slang Gang set from Paper Smooches; I just love that set. I originally meant it to be something said to the sheep because he had this outrageous glitter coat, but then it kind of looks like he’s saying it too; I guess it could be interpretted either way. I wish the photo showed how shiny the glitter paper is!
