Stretch Your Stamps 2: Backgrounds and Perfect Pearls

I realise now why I am so far behind on this class. It's because each technique is so amazing that I want to try it and then I just can't help but share it. It's a sickness, I guess...

This card uses Perfect Pearls. Something I haven't used in such a long time that they have turned hard as rock. Had to chisel at those babies to get any powder out. But they do make a fun background.

I die cut my circle and laid over my die cut sentiment. I love this font. It makes me happy. ETA: The paper I used to die cut is a matte finish copper paper that I found at my local art store. It actually comes in a full poster sheet. So it's poster board and lovely! They even had matte silver and gold!

That's all for now. I have more to show, but later. I needed to put them all in different posts so I can add in the links... is that correct? Someone out there help me if I am wrong and putting up more posts than I need to! Otherwise I will have so many Stretch Your Stamp 2 posts, you might get a tummy ache  : )

love to you

Thanks for your visit aileen!
Actually the paper is a mat finished copper colour that i found at my local art store. It comes in big poster size sheets! I have no idea what they intend it to be used for but i think its great for die cutting!
they also had mat finish silver and mat gold. so keep your eye out, you will be seeing more of it. ; )
