Yes! I said NAIL POLISH! (tee hee!!!)
Here's what I bought on last week's Treasure Hunt (yard sales finds):
2 bottles of Nail Polish - 10 cents each
hmmmmm... wonder if I can make something with that?
Yes, I can!
It's difficult to see in the picture, but the cherries on top of the two cupcakes are actually nail polish... so shiny!
The designer paper directly behind the image is created with the two shades of nailpolish brushed lightly in a streaking motion onto yellow cardstock. I really wish I'd taken a picture of "my" designer paper before adhering it to the card, so you could get the whole effect. It turned out quite nice, but the cute CUTE image covers most of it up.
Here's a closer view that shows "my" designer paper a little better:
In case you're wondering, the adorable image is a Bugaboo digital image! Precious!!! And Bugaboo is having a 50% off sale on ALL of their adorable images right now... so hurry on over and do some serious shopping. (Tell them Jeanette sent you.) The last day to purchase at 50% off is July 4.
