VSN, Rocks the House! Or at least it, it looks like an earthquake struck. We had little stampers going and then I even got to make 2 cards last night. I will go back and do some challenges later in the week. The coordinators last night did a rockin' job. I only hope I can do as well tonight.

If you are interested in VSN, check out this link!

There is still time to play, uploading is finished Sunday February 4th at 3 pm eastern time.

This card was for a challenge by Flaxychick, it was to do a pearlex technique and use glitter. So I did the heated pearls technique, this is so pretty, although the scan was pretty good at capturing it! This is easy and stunning..........Take your stamp I love using it with BG stamps. Ink it up with versamark. Then stamp on your card stock. Cover with clear ep and heat set. Take a soft brush and apply your pearl ex on top of the clear ep and heat set again. Wipe with a swiffer cloth and you are good to go. (I used 2 colours here, pink and turquoise) The Flower is stamped in turquoise and then covered in Versamark and ep was added and heat set. I accidentally spilled my Iridescent Ice ep last VSN so my jar was empty....but being crafty or maybe clever, I made my own using clear ep and dazzling diamonds glitter. Very cool, I like this card. (I really don't like using tags, they always seem out of place to me but I am hoping that I will get the hang of it)

This card is for a challenge by PattyB, it was a feisty old broad challenge. Although I totally messed up because you were supposed to use purple, purple and more purple.....oop's. I used a little purple and this fun Dolly Mama stamp, with one of my all time favorite phrases, "Put on your big girl panties and deal with it!" Way fun. She is stamped on watercolour paper and embossed with detail black ep then water coloured in. I used the Iridescent Ice ep on this as well. It was a great night of VSN even if I only got 2 challenges done. Hope to see everybody at VSN soon.

WOW.......I just had to have a go this minute at the Pearl Ex technique but had to use Perfect Pearls. It turned out great. Thank you so much for sharing that.
Your card is beautiful.
