All That Glitters

Joyce & Cindy hosting today. You probably guessed it - TWO sponsors so TWO random drawings!! Yipee. Boy oh boy you all broke records last week with the entries, be sure to check out the gorgeous creations.

Also, if you aren't a member of The Mod Squad Challenge group on Facebook be sure to join it. I remind you of discounts available and I have some exciting news for next year that will be announced there soon!


The challenge this week is to use glitter and be sure it is plainly visible!

This Weeks First Sponsor is Designs by Ryn
Ryn has the most gorgeous red rubber stamps! If you haven't tried any yet be sure to check out her shop


The prize are the same stamps I used in the example cards.


My Cards (Joyce's blog)

All the cards are done basically the same. The doves background is a stencil with texture paste then glitter added to it (and all over me), layered on a pale green glitter stock and vellum sentiment embossed in silver. For the stars I stamped in white pigment ink and colored using a Fantastix stick (a coloring tool) and the same white ink. The little embellies are the stare and dove stamped on shrink plastic! It shrunk much more then expected! Stamps used were Celtic Dove Set  & Celtic Star 4

Our Second Sponsor is Sunny Studio Stamps


There are some really nice stamps and dies here so be sure to check them out! If you use a Sunny Studio stamp you will get a bonus entry Just add MSC in front of the link name. DISCOUNT  CODE: "ModSquad" and it is good through 12/20/2015.
