Curtain Call & Paper Smooches

Looking at the inspiration picture for Curtain Call I kept thinking about the popcorn - and came up with an idea that made me flappy with happy! The littlest cloud dies from Paper Smooches look just like popcorn :)


Supplies: Paper Smooches cloud dies, sentiment; home made enamel dots; Wplus9 banner die; distress inks in Barn Door & Squeezed Lemonade


After die-cutting the clouds, I sponged them with the Lemonade ink for the buttery popcorn look. I free-hand the popcorn box, and used washi tape as a mask to create the stripes. They're a little wonky but I think it works :) The enamel dots are melted pony beads, which are going to be popping up a lot around here. Both kids LOVE the idea of melting them, and they were arguing yesterday over who got to sort them all by colour. 



And I'm also entering this in the Anything Goes challenge at Paper Smooches SPARKS:
