I've finished up my ATC for the ATC Swap over at Scraps of Darkness:

Here is a sneak peek of the ATC :

The background is some of my LSG: Industrial Chic's Starbursts.

Paper Temptress Embellishment

Hello Crafty Crafters.

This project I did while in the mood for Halloween!
This week over at Paper Temptress we are focusing on the Linen paper and the Lustre Paper.
My project is using the Lustre papers since that is what I have.

In this close up you can see the butterfly that I cut out of the Laser Black Glossy Lustre paper.

In this next piece you can see the Laser Red Glossy Lustre along with the Silver Lustre papers which I stamped my 3rd Eye Stamps on.

Another close up here:

One last close up:

As you can see from the details above its a nice quality paper to work with.
Here is the final project:

I figured this could be a stand alone project or added to another mixed media project.
Supplies used:
Paper Temptress: Laser Lustre Package
3rd Eye Stamps :             





Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch and Diamond Lace Circular Edge Punch
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Black Soot

Paper Temptress - Soar

Hello Crafters,

Here's a card I created focusing once again on the leather line of papers available at The Paper Temptress.
I love the look of leather. I have the variety pack and wanted to show you some of the colors that were available.There are so many fantastic papers available at The Paper Temptress. I hope you will go visit.
Here's a close up that captures some good color. :

As you can see I used an ivory (looks beige-y to me) base.. Then the top butterfly is called Cordovan and the next butterfly is white.

In the above photo you can see all 3 butterflies and the third butterfly is blue.

I used my EK Success layering punch for the butterflies.

Here is the finished card.:

I used my Close To My Heart Stamp and Distress Ink from Tim Holtz - Peacock

Head on over to Paper Temptress for all your Specialty Paper Needs. Stay tuned I will be participating in a special OWH hop. I will be experimenting with a digi-image.

Also check our blog to see a whole lot of inspiration: Paper Temptress Blog.

Once again the focus for this project was to showcase the paper leaving it relatively exposed.
Hope you enjoy.
Have a great weekend.
Happy Scrappn!
