Shine On...

I'm working with the Freshly Made Sketches and Colour Me! challenges together today.  I have actually been doing that a lot since both challenges come out on Wednesday - I may not get to them on that day - but I like to work them together.

The sketch is clean and simple and the colours are wonderfully subtle….Soft Sky, Pear Pizzazz, and Coastal Cabana.
I decided to paper piece the nail polish lids using the silver Foil Sheets.  I have never gotten rid of my Stampin'Up! Spritzer Tool - I love it!  That is how I added the splashes of the three colours onto the top of the matt.
To make the little bottles of nail polish shine, I've added a coating of Crystal Effects.

Hope your day is going well - we're dealing with winter again - but at this time of year you know that it won't last for long.
Thanks for stopping by to visit.

STEPS FOR MASKING UNWANTED 
PORTION OF A STAMP IMAGE

1.  On the mounted stamp - put a piece of tape over the portion of the image you DO NOT want to use.

2.  Ink up your image.

3.TAKE OFF THE PIECE OF TAPE!!!  THIS STEP IS VITAL.  
I'm sure there are tons of us out there who have forgotten to take the tape off!!!!!!

4.  Stamp the remaining image onto the desired card stock - punch it out or use it according to your plan.
