Welcome Sign


Welcome Blog Hoppers!!!!!!
I choose to do a Welcome sign created with Urban Swank products along with lots of different Helmar products.


I am featuring the Textured Effects today, just one of my Helmar favorites! There's so many cool things that you can do with this. Pretty much anything you want to make shiny or add dimension to you can slap this one - lol!
For this project I choose to make "epoxy type" butterflies.

I started with cutting out butterflies and then Glimmer Misting them. After they dry, I used Helmar's repositional runner to stick it down so it would not move. Then I applied the Textured Effects and created some lines in them to add some more dimension, see below :)

As you can see below it dries clear with a glossy coating and you can see the ripples I made with the lines, cool, hey?
I also used lots of Helmar's Zap Dots :)
And, of course, I used the 450 Quick Dry to adhere the lace to the bottom :) I used just a small line of it on the bottom and that lace is not going anywhere!!!
I used Embossing powder here to get this awesome look!

Thanks for checking out my Helmar project!

For your chance to win a 8.45 fl. oz. bottle of Helmar Textured Effects please leave a comment attached to this post. We will randomly select a winner to win a free bottle. Good luck!

And then go to Shelly Hein-Simmons blog to visit the next Helmar Blog Hop Blog!!!!
