GC 50 Found Objects


Just what do you do with those used fabric softener sheets? Well, after carrying it around in my pocket most of the day I suddenly remembered something we did some years back. I rubbed embossing ink on it, then doused it with different colors of glittered embossing power and embossed it CAREFULLY! They melt rather rapidly, but if you keep it moving it becomes a lacy object. You know me I like that "old" look, so I made sure it had holes in it. LOL I layered it onto a black card stock. The stamped image is from Stamp Zia and embossed with a flat blue powder on a purple cs, then layered onto silver and finally onto the fabric softener sheet. It all lays on a blue cs card. The odd looking semi round object is a bottle cap. I put glue all over the top and dipped it into Sapphire blue Diamonds from Suze Weinberg, let it dry and glued it onto the corner of the mat. It looks much better in real life since it sits up off the card. Now that I remembered the fabric softener little trick I'll have to use more of it, just think of the possibilities!
