February 19

Happy Wednesday!

What do paint chips and embossing have in common?
Something absolutely incredible when Girl Friday Virginia gets her hands on them!!
Take a looksie at what she created using 


I just think this is so much fun!
I love the details of the scattered sequins and 
the loopy gold thread on the heart. 
Just fabulous!

Virginia has some designer tips and tricks to share too!
Special features: 
1. Use various shades of paint chips for the arrow die cut.
1. Use part of the stamp to emboss. 
2. When gold-embossing, the image was embossed the 2nd time right after the first (the image was still hot). This will achieve a thicker and richer image.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Virginia's twice embossed heart is spectacular - surrounding it with the gold string really makes a strong statement. The paint chip arrows and the various sequins have wonderful colors. Virginia rocks as always :)
