This month's inspiration is all about sky scrapers and big city skylines. Here are a couple of my favorite pictures. You can see more great photos and read more about why Erin chose this theme over on the Earrings Everyday blog HERE.

So, what idea occurred to me during my walk? Using a new Sizzix DecoEmboss die that I bought at Bead & Button! It's one of the dies from their new Katelyn Lizardi line called "Modern Mosaic." (You can see all the product line HERE.) All the lines in the folder's design reminded me of windows in modern glass and steel sky scrapers. I used the folders to emboss three sets of Vintaj Arte Metal blanks all using slightly different parts of the die and buffed the surface to bring out some of the silver underneath the blackened surface.
