This was so much fun to create. My friend, Jeri Bellini, had been playing with metal foil this week and I remembered I had been hoarding some of this foil for a very long time. I found I had some in beautiful colors. The blue reminded me of the ocean and then the ideas started to roll. I embossed the blue foil with an old folder from Cuttlebug. Then I used a HeroArts Koi die to cut out the gold. I really liked the inlay piece.
I had some painted papers I applied to the cover with matte medium and then used some of the fractured ice embossing powder to give the appearance of sea spray.
Then I added the quarry stones to mimic the rocky ocean or river bottom with a bit of Glossy Accents. I love the textured surface.
I hope you enjoyed my play today. be sure to stop by Emerald Creek to see their whole line of products. also, check out Jeri's beautiful work. She is inspiring. Have a super day. Peg
