I've got Goosebumps!

GooseBumps is a clear "texture" spray that allows you to add unique textures on almost any surface (think paper, canvas, acrylic, acetate and many other surfaces)! It's very difficult to capture this cool effect in a picture, so you absolutely must stop by and check it out. Simply spritz a coat over your finished project and watch the goosebumps rise! The more you spray, the thicker and more dramatic the effect (and the longer the drying time, so keep that in mind).

  • Tiny speckles, like the texture on a wall (spray fro approx. 12" from surface with a forceful spray)

  • Larger dots/specks, like rain drops (spray from approx 8-10" away and push slowly on the sprayer)

  • Laminated look, like plastic (spray much closer and repeat until covered - NOTE: this does take longer to dry)

  • card of the week

    A little inspiration now that the cherry blossoms are finally out in full glory.  We've taken this lovely Penny Black image and stamped repeatedly on sage green card with Versamark to create this matching watermarked backed ground.  It's one of those simple techniques that so effective.  The image has been stamped in black on white card and coloured with Copics.  For that little extra pearls were added to the center of the flowers.
