More Puffy Faux Tin Stars...

Hello Crafty Friends!!!

OK, as promised I am back with some more puffy star faux tin ornaments.  Beware these were sooo addicting and the possibilities are endless.  (I would love to see your ideas if you choose to make some, attach your link to a comment and I will come check it out.)

Here we go:

Place pre-scored star in embossing folder and run through
your embossing machine.
Pre-scored will make it easier to fold later.

You might remember in the tutorial (previous post), I
mentioned about sizing your star to fit
an embossing folder.
Yeah, this is why.  LOL!
That's OK.  We will use that end
to punch our hanging hole.
Ta Daaa!!! LOL!

Here are the color inks I used.
You can use whatever you want for the effect
you are looking for.  :)
Sky's the limit!

I inked my edges first.

Then I sponged the Moonlight white lightly over the
(Why it looks so white in the picture I have no idea.  Must be
the flash.  It isn't this bright.)  :)

Crease the stars peaks and valleys.  

I inked the peaks with my brown dauber.
Again, it isn't this dark.  It is really light as you will see
in the finished piece.  

(See I told you wasn't that dark.)  ;)

Here is one I did with a dark blue ink.
I inked the blue previous to embossing using the
pad to paper method.
Let dry a bit before running through your embossing
folder, or it will get messy.
After embossing go over entire star lightly with silver ink on a dauber.  

Well, I hope you enjoyed all my little lovely stars.  I am sure there will be more to come.  My mom gave me her old ginormous fake Christmas tree (9 feet) and I will need more ornaments to fill that sucker up.  More about that later after I am done decorating.  LOL!

Talk to you soon!!!
