Xpandaprint Play

My DH bought these little drill bits for me, aren't they nice? How many girls get excited over drill bits!? I wanted them to prepare for my Over-the-Top Embellishments class. I've also been doing a little more experimenting with Xpandaprint.
I stamped these images with my little hand carved wine cork stamps, then lightly dusted with Pearl-ex powders. Discovered I should put something under the fabric. My cutting board has some new decor now. I scrubbed it after this photo & it faded a little, but is still visible. Oh well, live & learn.
This last one is Xpandaprint & Pearl-ex done with a little metal stencil that I bought in Shipshewana, Indiana in 1996. Finished it's 2 1/2x 3 1/2. The size of an ATC.

Today we're heading back down to Kenai to try & get a few more of those good Red Salmon. Wish us luck!

I have never had good results working with xpandaprint, yours turned out great. Good luck fishing!

The photo of the xpandaprint ATC doesn't do it justice.
Good luck fishing!

So you dig drill bits--I knew there was something I liked about you! I don't have a Dremmel, but I have a big Black & Decker cordless drill. I love power tools...Jim recenly bought me an electric saw so I could cut lath strips for hanging my quilts. I'd love to go fishing with you too, if I could...

Rian.......beware of saw! I love power tools too and never found a project I couldn't do! However, I lost part of my thumb to a table saw. That's how I met my plastic surgeon!
