A while back, one of the designers sent out an e.mail asking what we were all doing for the hop, but, I have to say I didn't reply, not because I was being rude, but as I still had no idea what I was going to do. I usually try to incorporate a technique in the Blog Hops, using as much SNS product as I can. With that at the back of my mind, and being in love right now with a new set that just came out, Set 493 - Silhouettes, here is what I came up with:
I had a clip picture frame lying in a drawer, which I disassembled, masked out a circle from a Post-It note for the sun, and then applied Versamark ink to the entire back of the glass. I applied six different embossing powders, starting at the top: Shimmer, Ice Rink, Country Blue, Arctic, Vintage and Hit the Beach, then heat embossed the entire back. I then went back and applied a mortise mask to the sun, applied Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Coast.
I simply stamped the Silhouette Scene on the front of the same piece of glass in black StazOn. I added a couple of extra stamps from the same set, including the birds. The great thing with working on glass is, before it completely dries, you can erase anything you don't like with StazOn cleaner and a tissue and then stamp over.
All I needed now were a few embellishments: a lovely teal ribbon, some Mudd Puddles, a little shell, and of course the beautiful saying and I was done. If you need more thorough instructions, you can find them right here in my Gallery.
I hope you liked what I shared today. After leaving me a comment, you should hop right on over to see what our talented Jacqueline has come up with. I can't wait to see what everyone has done.
Enjoy the hop and have a great day!
See you again soon,
