Stampendous Saturday, Recycled, Repurposed & Reused April Challenge continues…


The stupendous Stampendous  gals are at it again this week...recycling, repurposing, and reusing for the month of April! Nothing hits the "round file" this month, and everything is fair game to be stamped, cut, encrusted, and Fran•taged!

For our recycled, reused, and repurposed challenge I dug through my scraps and found two great pieces of Glossy Black cardstock (man I love this stuff)

I whipped up a concoction of Acrylic Glazing Liquid, Iridescent Pearl Heavy Body Acrylic and mica powder.  I swirled my brew around on a craft mat to mix thoroughly and applied a thin layer with a brayer over one piece of Glossy Black paper.


While the mixture was still wet, I stamped the beautiful flourish from the brand spankin’ new Cling Jumbo Cottage Rose set (see below) into the mixture.  The stamp picked up the beautiful sparkle of the mixture and I stamped that down on another piece of glossy black cardstock.

This technique was very simple and fun.  The possibilities are endless.  Drying time for the “mixture'” was roughly 20 minutes, maybe less.

Check out what the players for this week have been up to:
