Well, I wish I could say I'm giving away $5K. I'm not. This is an insert that fell out of a Newport catalog that arrived at my house last week(maybe you got one, too? I've never bought anything from Newport, yet still I get a catalog every now and again) Anyway, I was really drawn to the colors and smokin' hot lady images, saw some definite papercrafting potential here! (I've been wanting to do some really cool "girl on the go" tins, but would you have believe I don't own any cool girl stamps?? Nope, no bellas, like em, but don't have any. Rubber Romance I really like, too, especially "Melanie"(hee!) but don't have those either! so I had to get creative...)
I did NOT want the white text on my tin, so here's a really neat way to crop/paper piece a custom label together using the a label image from What's in Your Tin?2. I stamped it on the corner so I'd have the large girl on the left. (It's okay the dollar sign is still in there, wait and see.)
Next I cut around the outline of the label with my snips and then just went around the right side of her silhouette.
Now I need the top right hand corner. on the back of the insert was the same artwork (flipped) so I stamped my label again to have the paparazzi clicking pics over her shoulder, and cut out on the line.
And here's the finished tin with the images glued together to make one new label! Cool, huh?! I added an adhesive rhinestone to one lens, and matted it on black CS, part of the cover of my DCVW All Dressed Up mat pack(that showed the diffrent pattern swatches!). Perfect match for these colors and artwork on the insert.
Gotta go, I'm a little irked becuase I spent a lot of time writing the end of this post, had it saved, and when I posted it, I noticed it cut off the end, can't find it anywhere!!! Hopefully I don't need to start backing up all my text in another location, grr :( (So I had to come back in and at least finish the directions, but can't redo all the rest right now! more later!)
