Shine Brightly

Happy Thursday!!!

Today is Trending Now over on the MCT blog. The trend we are looking at is embossing. I made a tag for a friends daughter, who is starting college next week. I thought she could use it as a bookmark/place holder in one of her school books.
I decided to emboss the front of my tag with one of the stitched star dies, I love the look of this technique and need to use it more. I used the 4th largest star.

Here is a video showing how to emboss with metal dies.

I sprayed it with some homemade glimmer mist. I used water and silver perfect pearls in a small spray bottle. I love the shimmery effect it creates.
