With the Fourth of July right around the corner I wanted to quickly share a fun little project with you. I am in love with the Skyline dies due to their versatility. I missed out on one fabulous opportunity to share the Father's Day ideas I had and decided I could not miss out on this one!
Being I didn't have a fireworks stamp I looked at the different flowers and snowflakes we carry - I thought this Starburst was perfect for this project.
Stamp the image on black cardstock using embossing ink and lightly sprinkle Holographic embossing powder as shown above. Do not fully cover because you want to mix the holographic powder together with the opaque white. Then sprinkle the opaque white embossing powder over the entire image. Remove the excess combined powders and store in a new container for a future project. Heat set.
Using a pastel pencil add color randomly to your starbursts as shown above. After coloring use your fingertip to rub the pastel color into the embossing powder mix.
I couldn't resist layering Fantasy Film behind the windows and backed it with white cardstock to make the windows glow in the dark. Simply trace your diecut skyline image. Apply adhesive to the white cardstock and attach the Fantasy Film. Then cut out your shape inside the pencil lines and adhere directly behind your black skyline cutout.
As you can see I ended up using two different skylines - both Savvy Cityscape and My Favorite Things Skyline. This is definitely not necessary, but I wanted to show that the scale of these dies allows them to work together beautifully, creating a more diverse look. You can also cut the shapes and flip them to add character to your cityscape.
Use dimensional foam dots to create a layered effect.
Let the celebrations begin! Thank you for stopping by the CLASSroom again today!
