Hey creatives Rita Barakat here with a new project to share! Did you know that The Crafters Workshop makes metal dies? I had such fun with The Crafters Workshop metal dies that I had to share this project with you! Simply cut your shapes and grab some sprays!(Of course I had to add my girls!) Here are some close ups!
All the edges were inked and popped up with foam squares. I used 7 Gypsies jump rings to keep my pieces together.
I would like to take credit for the background but really all I did was add gesso! It was blue paper with embossed stars (DCWV), I needed to lighten it up so I added gesso, it resisted and pooled up in areas all by itself- don’t you love when that happens?
So the next time you are looking for metal dies don’t forget to check out The Crafters Workshop! And Happy fourth of July!
