Did I mention that they donated hundreds of dollars of products for our team to try out. We are just loving getting pampered by them. This week I used The "Starburst Stain"in "Hydrangea Blue" on my card. If you enlarge my Mermaid card and look at the embossed swirl back ground paper, I have just lightly stained the raised embossed part of it. Take a close look at how pretty the shimmer of the Hydrangea Blue just sparkles. They have such a huge verity of Stain and Spray colors you can view them HERE!! I invite you all to check out their wonderful line of products and be sure to tell them the “Midnight Madness” sent you. They even have fabulous videos Here! And if you get a chance you should really check out their GALLERY.
