Shopping our Stash #214 - Make a Spectacle of Yourself!


We've got another fun challenge for you this week at Shopping our Stash - spectacles! Either use some stuff from your stash featuring glasses (the spectacle kind) OR use the spotlight technique. I actually have quite a few things featuring glasses, and I stared at them for some time before coming up with a little tag card:


Supplies: Paper Smooches stamps; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; wood veneer glasses; black detail EP; classic small oval Nesties; button & twine from stash

I used a glue pen to cover the top of the wood veneer and embossed it with black detail EP, dipping it in the powder while still hot & reheating 4-5 times to get the nifty smooth shine. This is the first time these Paper Smooches stamps have seen ink too. 

So how can you make a spectacle of yourself? 

xoxo,
Jessi
