Since it is mid-summer, and I am yearning for the beach, I chose the BTSS stamps for my twinchies for the July 2015 Twinchie swap at Club Scrap. Many moons ago I was an FFC Crafter for Club Scrap. One of the first classes that I taught was creating ALSB pages for the By the Seashore (BTSS) kit. The kit papers are long gone, but I still have my stamps!
One of the techniques that I taught in my class was the Tim Holtz Perfect Distress stamping technique. It looked sooooo good with the BTSS stamps!
So, I got out my Perfect Pearls and distress inks and my little pieces of flair came together.
I chose the salty ocean distress ink, because of the theme of course! Red-orange was the complementary color for the blue-green of my paper so I chose perfect copper Perfect Pearls. I love how it turned out! The blue and the copper made an iridescent magenta color when they mixed.
I heat embossed little pieces of pearlescent vellum with copper foil embossing powder to complement the Perfect Pearls. I wanted to add a little something extra and I found a stash of tiny seashells. I added one to the front of each twinchie.
Here’s a close up…
In celebration of summer, I have an unmounted sheet of BTSS stamps (scroll up for the pic) AND a bottle of Mount it adhesive to give away! Just leave your comment below and I’ll choose a winner on July 24.
Hope you are enjoying your summer, ♪♫ Feelin’ hot, hot, hot!♫ (or is it just me?)
