Do not spritz any kind of shimmery mist over the Twinkling H2O’s after you have painstakingly painted with them. My advice….spritz FIRST and let it dry before you add the Twinkling H2O’s. Just saying.
I think I can salvage the butterflies.
If you have seen my video on using hotel key cards, and my warning to not use a heat tool on them. Well, I’m planning on using the heat tool on this one. I want to see if the butterfly will appear to be in flight.
Do you remember the paper Stampin’ Up! had available at the beginning of this year? The paper that is “magic”?
Now do you remember it?
Tim has requested five (5) holders for his pre-teen and teen nieces. Gulp! We no longer have these young people in our homes. I had to go think about this for a while.
My thinking is the following: Justin Bieber is hot right now but no girl would want to have him hanging around when she is 20. Twilight and Harry Potter likewise. My granddaughters have all told me that they love the things I make for them because they are “Grown Up” things and not the current fad.
So I am taking a tip from Jann at WhatYouMakeIt. I am going to play around with Distress Stains and hopefully the base cover piece will turn out beautiful. Hope, hope, hope.
The colors I’m using are Wild Honey….see the photo above for that color.
And finally, Spun Sugar.
I’m not entirely thrilled with the placement of the Spun Sugar but you never know…it might turn out to be a stroke of genius when I have the Holder completed…..or not.
I’ve been doing the things I’m familiar and comfortable with. Time to step out of my comfort zone. Besides, it is not like I don’t have enough of the 7″ x 7″ cardboard pieces. I do have three sheets of the cardboard in my Living Room right now so no big deal if I mess one of them up.
I forgot to mention in the video. At the store where I bought the cardboard sheets, they sell for $1.65 for a piece that measures 36″ x 48″.
Why don’t I have those sheets in my craft room? You don’t want to know. Seriously…you don’t want to know.
