Current Inspire Me Fridays link-up HERE!

November 30, 2011

Let's get down & dirty! & Help please!

Happy Wednesday!

 Joy's Life Stamps DT was challenged to create a  project for the "Boy's Zone!".  A bit of grunge maybe...I had a blast with this one!

Pin It

Sentiment: Joy's Life Stamps (Everyday Occasions & Lots of Pun) clear stamps
Paper: SU! cs
Ink: Staz on (midnight blue)
Other: Pearl-Ex powder, piercing tool, 
gel pen, twine,
Cricut- Plantin Schoolbook (pg 74, <star>)

I tried two new techniques...using the 'negative' paper after cutting out a few stars on my Cricut. And making home-made shimmer mist, using hairspray & Pearl-Ex powder!  too fun!

Mark your calendars, we're having a fun blog hop this Friday! fun prizes are involved!  yay!

Hairspray and Pearl Ex, what a great idea Maria! It looks really good! I have shimmer mist but am not to thrilled with it as it always seems to "glop" on the paper. Thanks for sharing your idea of hairspray, I bet that works better. I also added the blog hop button to my sidebar, I look forward to hopping!
