The shiny had to go- lucky it peeled off!I used Versa Magic Dew Drop Chalk Ink Pads all over for a smudgy funky look- in Purple and then in Olive and vice versa (the wedding colors). I let them dry and I think re-invented the favors!
I'm a fan of the dew drops because they are the perfect shape for smudging- try this technique on a card and enjoy a fancy frame. Stamp a saying in the middle and ta da! Card on the quick :) You can use other stamps pads but the bigger they are the harder you'll have controling the color.

I am having very crafty- handmade holidays (beyond Christmas) this year. A number of gifts are from etsy shops and or made by me and my family and friends really enjoyed it. I was nervous but no one else has a creepy clown photo like my friend Amanda (Hey Harriet), my Gram has a rockin pearl necklace from my hands, the earrings my mom wears gets lots of ooos and ahhs (me again), the cats and dogs on my list- mine, my sisters, my best friends' got training treats and catnip (Gneiss Spice), and the list goes on!
BB Bellezza wrote a great article on why you should buy handmade- and I couldn't have said it better myself!

What you need- decorative paper, cardboard, clothes pins, modge podge, glue, embelishments (I added a pretty paper flower cut out) magnets, and tea or instant coffee
1) Cut the Cardboard into a fun shape (I used a creative memories Wavy Frame Pattern)
2)Cut decorative paper the same shape- glue on , and add a layer of modge podge
3)Cut strips of decorative paper to fit over the clothes pins- glue on, and add a layer of modge podge
4) Add another layer of modge podge to everything (you can add any paper cut out embelishments in this step- make sure you seal them if you do with more modge podge)
5) Glue the clothes pins on
6) Adhere the magnets
Yeah Modge Podge! (excuse the drying mp in the 1st photo)
