So I'm joining my friend Cathie today from her blog With Coffee in Hand on her weekly quest to 'bust her stash'. Sara is also joining Cathie-and so begins an impromptu blog hop! Check out her project on her blog, Sara Things, as well.
I'm on a mission this month to kill a few kits and that meant dragging out some old supplies. And that's just what I did.
I found this paper in an old kit from The Paperie and loved it's sheen. You cna't really see if very well with the lighting but trust me-it's lovely. So I dragged out the one 'silk' I own-gold of course, my current color obsession- and some mists and masked and tap tap tapped my way to a little messy first.
Sidenote: The new gold metallic Mr. Huey is beau-ti-ful.
Then I dragged out some tags and misted them with some Bonny Blue Mr. Huey. Then I stamped them with a dark blue Jenni Bowlin ink and a polka dot stamp.
I used up an old tag-origin unknown- & an old little silver clock rub on from Studio Calico, a little Fancy Pants heart pin and a few items from my DD kits. The gold doily is from the Kelly Purkey kit and the sequins, fabric brad & wood veneer doily are form the SC kit. I also used a few Stampin' Up heart rub-on's like the one on the corner of the picture.
I added the four wood veneer potty people with an inital for each of us stamped on them with some old Inkado stamps.
I used an old OA label inside that little plate that I've had lying around forever with a few of the fonts from the Studio Calico DD kit.
I stamped a sentiment on some gold striped washi tape over a piece of leftover doily and a few layers of stamps and an old heart rub-on. I added a sequin with a little gem for good measure.
Frankly, I never get 'messy'-and honestly I walked away with very little residue on my fingers- but I enjoyed playing around a little bit. It was fun. I'm planning on taking Cathie's '7 Layer' class in March and if you're interested in learning a few new 'messy' techniques you should sign up too.
