Presenting....6 Girls & a Smoking Gun

Today on WOW Embossing Powders blog my team, 6 Girls & a Smoking Gun, posted our first group post. The post was done by our wonderful team lead, Jen Deal, and she did a great job!  So be sure to visit the WOW Embossing Powders blog to see what the very creative girls on my team made, you will be inspired!

But here is a good look at what I made for the post:
I did a 12x12 layout of my Best Friend, Shirley, and I together doing some of the things we love to do.  For this layout I used BoBunnys Gabrielle Collection, WOW Embossing Powders, May Arts & Prima fibers, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Perfect Pearls Mists, and Kaiser Craft bling.

Here are some close ups:
For the chipboard sign holder I first used Versamark ink and covered it completely with Pepper from the Suzy West Pantry Collection. After melting the Pepper, I used little amounts of the Olive & Nutmeg powders. I wanted to give the holder kind of a distressed look so I used my fingers and just kinds of sprinkled the two colors on in little blotches. I then melted them. Next I lightly sprinkled some of the WOW Metallic Gold Rich Pale on the holder and melted it. I love how it turned out!

The butterflies were made by using the amazing the WOW "Build A Butterfly" stamp set. I first stamped the butterfly outline using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Ink on a piece of velum. Next I stamped the inside of the butterfly using Versamark. I then sprinkled the same colors of embossing powders that I used on the holder onto the butterfly to create the same distressed look. This was a trick I learned from some of my fellow WOW Design Team members!
