EBTKS Challenge 16

Hey, all! Time for another Around the House challenge from Everything But the Kitchen Sink! Our hostess this month, Kelly, picked a super fun item--nail polish! How cool is that? I can't wait to see how creative everyone will be with this challenge!



We also have a fabulous sponsor this time around--DeNami Design! Our winner will receive a $30 gift card! Just imagine all the awesome stamps and supplies you could buy with that! But you can't win if you don't play along...

I really enjoyed this challenge. I used nail polish to paint a clear Heidi Swapp butterfly. (And in case you're wondering, the polish is Maybelline's Timely Turquoise.) I added a few rhinestones, embossing, ribbon, and a sentiment. Pretty easy and I think it turned out very cool...it has a really pretty shimmer to it IRL.

So, I hope you're inspired and ready to play along with us! Link up your finished project on the EBTKS blog by midnight CDT June 8th. Now get creating!

Stamps: Signature Greetings (PTI)
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Taken with Teal, PTI white
Ink: Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: PTI ribbon, Heidi Swapp ghost shape, Kaisercraft rhinestones, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, dimensionals, nail polish
