From This to This!
I kept thinking I wish I had some Terri Sproul Mixers, or the Hobby Baby enamel powders. I just knew they would make it perfect. Unfortunately, I didn't have either one available to me, so I did what any adventurous paper crafter would do and threw another layer on it. I find that if I don't like something, I just keep adding until I do like it or I decide there is no hope. The next layer was actually the nail polish I had on. It was a pinky iridescent purple with glitter in it. I coated the butterfly in that and it actually turned out pretty.
From what I hear about the Piccolo pieces they are not bad about the little nubs where they punch out of the sheet, but cheap chipboard is awful about it. I hate those little nubs, and when they are in small spaces, they are hard to get rid of with out the right tools.
Hobby Baby sells a great set of needle files that reach in all those small spaces. You can find them HERE.
You just sand off the little bumps. It only takes a few extra seconds, but makes a huge difference in your finished projects.
You can see the bumps are gone.
Do I add it to a wreath? And hang that? Do I set it on an easel? Do I add a "kickstand" to the back to make it free standing? A a pretty ribbon and hang it from that?
What do you think readers? How would you like to see it finished? I will be reading your comments and will let you know what I decide. In the mean time, head over to Hobby Baby and see what they have to offer. You can also check out their BLOG.
Happy Crafting and hope to see you back soon!
