Smile...It's Time to Announce the Winner

Hello Everyone,
Thanks for celebrating with me this past weekend. Hard to believe it has been 8 years, but I can honestly say I have enjoyed the journey. Meeting so many wonderful people and learning from each makes me want to continue for another 8 years (or more).

Welcome to all my new followers. I am looking forward to sharing lots this summer, so be sure to check back often. Also, if you haven't left your blog address be sure to. I want to visit and see what you are creating.

Today's project...
After looking back at the last couple of weeks, I realized I had a lot of projects that used my Cameo and SVG files. I decided to do something a little different...heat embossing with a MFT background stamp. I used clear VersaMark ink and white embossing powder. Then I applied 4 different colors of Tim Holtz oxide inks: cracked pistachio, peacock feathers, broken china, and faded jeans. I tested the colors on a piece of scrap paper to make sure they blended nicely first because I did not want to ruin my background. Let's just say that is a lesson learned from past experience.
I used a MFT rounded stitched edge die to create the lower portion, stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx ink, and added Smile with Tombow multi mono liquid glue (sticks well to the embossing). Then a few color coordinated sequins were scattered on the front panel.
