~Monday?? Already? New favorite technique & Giveaway too!~

Good morning, can you believe it is Monday already?
I feel like this weekend shot past me.

I did work on a few projects but most of them are for
my DT work and won't be revealed for a while.

In the mean time I wanted to share my new
favorite technique with y'all.
I made this card using my Cricut Expression,
the Cindy Loo cartridge, Glossy Accents *Ranger*, PK Glitz Glitter,
and paint. But not just any paint!
I have discovered old gummy paint LOL
It is awesome! You can do it my way...or shortcut it.
My way is to use half a bottle of acrylic paint
then leave it for 4 months until it gets gummy
OR you can pour new paint onto a plate, add some
waterbased glue to it (the standard school kind)
let it set for 20 minutes or 1 hour, until it gets gummy
then spread it on your project.
For the best results I use my fingers.
I play with it like plaster. It leave great dimension without
the ugly shine. It will also crack beautifully if you
use a heat gun on it.
What do you think? Fun right?

Ok on to the giveaway, I have sitting here from CHA
2 SIGNED Tim Holtz Embossing Folders!
Yea that's right....Woot Woot!

And as of today we are at 724 followers.
I would love to hit 750 this week, my goal is 1000 by
December for Christmas, I hope anyways.

Come on guys help me out here!
Leave a comment, spread the word! :)
Just a little secret, I am working on getting a
Cricut to giveaway at 1000 followers! So it's going to be BIG! :)
~Happy Monday!!!!!!!!!!~
~Thanks for stopping by!~
~Have a beautiful day~
~Pinky~

OK..Pinky, is the gummy paint the whole project or just around the edge? I love your project and I have ZERO Tim Holtz embossing folders, so sign me up for the giveaway too!

Pinky said...

It is just around the edges, the gold shimmery paint. Can you see the close up? That's all paint. I am all about leaving my paint open now LOL

Love the texture the paint provides , pretty cool !

rosegarden - Laura Fiskateer 5939 said...

Hmmm, I never considered adding Elmers Glue to my paint. Good suggestion Pinky. I've been a follower for a while now. Hope you reach your goals!

Denise said...

Half a bottle of ink?! That's a lot of ink. Looks wonderful.

Pretty Little Paper Love said...

I love old paint! I do that all the time, especially when my 7yr old doesn't close the paint bottles all the way! Cute card, I adore the Cindy Lou cartridge, it's one of my favs!

michelle said...

Wow I love the paint technique that is so fun!

Jessica said...

Scrapycandy said...

Did you say embossing folders? How cool! And your technique is a good one! Thanks again for the inspiration!

Marianne - Fiskateer #6701 said...

Your card is very cute! Your method of gummy paint is probably the method I would wind up using too. Nice that it still useful after it gets that way.

Thank you for the chance to win the Tim Holtz folders.

I will post a message for all of my new followers I acquired by being in the orange blog hop(all 15 of them!) to come check your blog out. Would love to help make your Christmas wish come true!

Jodi said...

gorgeous card!!! love the paint technique, TFS!! What a fabulous giveaway!

Kelly Sas said...

I'd really like to see the effect of this technique in person cuz on line it never looks like it does in person. I love the idea of it cracking. I follow you already for a long time now and so glad I do. I will try to get more followers for you!

{raisingAlexis} said...

I love your gummy glue "recipe"! I'd do it your way, too ... the other way is too easy!

I am already following you on FB but plan to share this post there so others can get in on the fun!

Chris C said...

LOL when you said old gummy paint I thought that was a brand I hadn't heard of. I have lots of that stuff lying around, nothing better than a bit of finger painting.

Lesa said...

Great job, Pinky! Gonna love trying the gummy paint technique,

Becky said...

love the gummy paint :) I might have some of that myself laying around...lol
