Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Totally Tassel

IMG_1689

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!





We have a wonderful returning sponsor, Newton's Nook, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Totally Tassel!  A randomly selected participant in this challenge will receive a $30 gift certificate to use at Newton's Nook while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!




To make the tassels on my graduation caps gold, I covered just the tassels with VersaMark and dipped them into gold embossing powder. To add dimension and to create a barrier between the gold embossed patterned paper and the die cuts I first adhered the caps with foam tape and then I adhered three die cuts together for the sentiment. Adding dimension makes your images and/or sentiments stand out when your background is similar in colour to your elements.
