Clearsnap Blog Hop

Pin It

I am participating in this fun hop of Clearsnap & Ann Butler Designs!  Clearsnap manufactures some of Ann Butler's amazing faux quilting stamps and Crafter's Inks.  

I am creating a frame using some fun products!  Let's get started!
 I started with the Crafter's Ink and coated the frame.  I then used one of the foam backed stamps and Canyon Ink.
 I then used some of the new Pumpkin Pie Spritzer and sprayed the entire surface.  I covered the surface with clear and sparkle embossing powder and heat set.
 Next I used an art screen by Ann Butler and Deep Woods ink to add texture.  I added more embossing powder and heat set.
 I added some bling from Connie Crystal and some flowers.  I sprayed the flowers with some Spritzer Ink and then just hit the tips with white paint.  
 I attached all the embellishments and added my photo of Rod Stewart!  

 A closer look.
 Thanks for visiting and hope you hop to the other blogs too!  Leave a comment to be entered for the prize package!
