Sunset Cruise


 Time for more examples of the newest dies from Die-Versions.  One of the new Sweet Petites is a silhouette of a Ship.  I've used a variation of the "painting with embossing powders" technique to create my sunset.

All you need to do to create your own painted sunset is take a piece of cardstock and cover it with VersaMark.  Then begin adding sprinkling stripes of embossing power.  I used Sparkle N Sprinkle's Amethyst Spray, Cerulean, Sangria Star, Tuscan Star, and Tequila Sunrise (in that order from bottom to top).  Once the entire piece is covered, I heat set it.  I love the added glitter that's already in several of the embossing powders, making the sky twinkle and sparkle.  It's much more sparkly in person.  The sentiment is die cut with Die-Versions' Casting Call font out of the Tequila Sunrise embossing powder.

Head on over to the store to see all the other new releases this month.  Be sure to visit the Die-Versions Blog to see more great examples by the DV Dynamos too.
