Shopping our Stash #139 - Embellish Me!


Now, here's where reading the challenge description is important - we don't just want to see embellishments this week at Shopping our Stash - we want to see embellishments that YOU have made!  I had  to go with my most recent 'hey, I can do that!' which is clay embellishments.


Supplies: Martha Stewart clay kit; papers from Basic Grey; sentiment from Hero Arts; Versamark, white detail EP; lace from stash; Wilton doily; Neat & Tangled crystal clear sequins

No idea where the lace is from - it was SO the perfect colour though. Although the clay embellishments are bulky, they are incredibly light so they are easy to adhere to the card. Mail, not so much. 

So now, what are YOU going to make for an embellishment?  Come & play along with this challenge until next Monday, February 24th hop on by & leave the rest of my teamies some love!


xoxo,
Jessi

Is there nothing you can't do? Seriously, this card is gorgeous! That clay flower goes perfect with the DP and lace!

Beautiful!

I think the bulk is why I have not really hopped on the clay embellies yet. They are pretty, but chunky. Good to know they're lightweight, though.

The pressure is on! A homemade embellishment, eh? I like your clay flower very much. It really looks good on this card and that matching lace? What a scream that it matched so well.

That flower is CLAY?!?! NO WAY! It looks so real. Well, like a paper flower looks real, if you get my drift. AWESOME, baby, AWESOME!

You're making it hard for me to keep my "no clay" resolve--LOL! Love your flowers, including this one! Great card, Jessi!

You'd think the flower is the star... not for me. I find myself staring at the background DP. It's gorgeous, Jessi!

Hmm, I might have to go to Michaels tomorrow, may have to look into these clay roses. Although you are the queen of them, Jessi. Such a soft, pretty card. :)
