stamp-a-faire: rolled dough and mixed mists (PTI)

Next stop for me at the Papertrey Stamp-a-faire is the "Rolled Dough" technique.  Now, I don't have the product that the DT used (a paper-based clay - how cool is that - wonder if it's less weighty than normal clay?) If I did have it I would definitely try my hand at a frame, but that'll have to wait.  Hmmm, reminds me of the toilet paper embellishments I made a while back.  'member?

Well, what I do have is a string of beads that DD and a girlfriend made from Fimo clay a few years back. Saw them hanging there on the hook in my craft room and thought I'd put a couple to use. See, it's a good thing I saved them.  Well... you be the judge of that.

I actually picked up the beads and this sketch recipe from the Faire
and then tweaked a little here and there.  This is what happened.

Hoping I can convince DD to give this card to one of her girlfriend's cuz this one is definitely not fitting into an envelope!

Totally inspired by Nichole H.'s card for the "Mist Mixing."  Don't have PTI re-inkers so used Distress with water and a bit of Perfect Pearls for shimmer.  And then had to help out with a bit of Dylusions yellow cuz DI Broken China doesn't really "go with" my turquoise Zing.  This is what happened.

Chalking this up to 'sperience.  Besides the difference in blues (the whole point of this stop at the Faire was to create mists that match your PTI stash - yep) the stamped bloom is too delicate for that PP.  Sentiment is lost, even with the washi pointing to it.

Off for more.  "Sprinkle of Salt." "Gallon/Quart/Pint."   All sound good to me.  Are you playing at the Faire too?

DD probably won't take much convincing, it's just right for a teen. Love the turquoise Zing with the mist mix.

LOVE the arrow washi ... what a great idea to just snip the ends off! Mental note on that one.
