TTT Winner and October Challenge

Happy Thursday!
Just a reminder that our challenges are now on a MONTHLY basis.  Each challenge here at Shelly's Images will begin on the first Thursday of the month and run through the end of the month.  That gives everyone a full month to play along!  Be sure to check out the sidebar for a complete list of upcoming challenges, tutorials, and special events.
AND, the DT will typically be working with a Shelly's Images digi stamp of their choice for each challenge.  That means you get to see lots of different digi stamps each month.  

So...let the fun begin!  To start off we want to announce the winner of our 
 September ... ROLL 'EM Challenge.  

Our "Beary" Favorite project is #20 Jackie Wallace from Schoolin' and Scrappin'.   Jackie, we loved the vintage feel of your project.  All of the added embellishments carry out the theme perfectly.  Awesome work!   I will be emailing you very soon with your $6 gift voucher.  Please also be sure to grab your "Beary" Favorite badge here.

Ready for a new challenge?!!?!!  We sure hope so!

  • Life is busy for all of us here at Shelly's Images. We do projects with SI digi stamps and run the challenges just for the love of the hobby. We don't promise to comment on every entry. But all of the designers will go through the entries and stop by their favorites. If you get a comment from us you will know that we loved it enough to drop in and leave a special note. 
We look forward to seeing your creation and thanks so much for joining in our challenge fun!

Making Glimmer Mists

Hi friends!
It's Tuesday and time for another Tutorial.  Today I thought I would do a little video tutorial to show you my tips and techniques for making Glimmer Mist sprays.

If you have any trouble clicking the video above, please click this link to the video.

Making your own Glimmer Mists is really very fun and of course cost saving.  Don't be afraid to mix paints too and come up with your own wonderful color concoctions.

Items needed:
Acrylic Metallic Paint - (non metallic works too)
Rubbing Alcohol
Ranger Ink Mini Mister
2 bb's
