Intergalactic Sugar Skull

Greetings! Today I'm sharing a card with what may be my favorite Sparkle Blend from the April 2018 release. It's called Intergalactic, and its filled with teals, purples, blues, and hot pinks. Some of my favorite colors! It's got regular sequins, stars, opalescent gems, tiny beads, and lots of other bits that you'll love looking at. I decided to make a shaker out of one of my all-time favorite Sugar Skulls. It's from Dilly Beans and if you've been a long-time follower of mine, you may recognize it. I thought the eyes would make great shakers.

If you'll notice, the right eye is right at the edge of the drawing, so I opted to cut a border around it so that I had room to apply my foam to close the shaker correctly. I kept the edge wavy to work with the wavy edge of the digi. I colored the image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I chose colors that matched very close to those in the Shaker Blend.

For my card background, I used Rose Bud Fireworks! Spray and Tuxedo Black irRESISTables spray for some added dimension and shine. I also used some corrugated turquoise colored cardstock, which I tore on top. I also used a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp set called CZ Designs Simple Sentiments No. 1. I love that set because it has a lot of funny and sometimes snarky phrases. 

The Intergalactic Sparkle Blend is a real beauty. The colors are so bold and I love the varying mix of round sequins, stars, crystals, and beads. Remember, you can only get Sparkle Blends at White Rose Crafts LLC, and each blend is Limited Edition. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.

The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
