Prepping for the VLVS! Link Up BLog Hop!!!

This is just a little tease... I have something big planned for the LINK UP BLOG HOP!
The Viva Las Vegastamps! "Link Up Blog Hop" is May 26th & 27th, featuring Mary Vogel Lozniak's awesome VLVS! images.  There is still time to think about LINKING UP! See details HERE!

Today I am using Mary Vogel Lozniak's Headless Unicycle Juggler. With the Viva Las Vegastamps! sentiment "Anything I can imagine I can do." 
Stewart Superiors Memories Black Ink
Mary Vogel Lozniak VLVS! Headless Unicycle Juggler 
White Card Stock
Black Card Stock
Yellow Card Base
Robins Nest Dew Drops

Stamp the Headless Unicycle Juggler on white cardstock, color dress with Tim Holtz Distress Marker - Rusty Hinge and fussy cut. 
Stamp the Headless Unicycle Juggler directly on the card, with Tim Holtz Distress Markers color the arms Tattered Rose and Pumice Stone on the unicycle. Note: The border was made ahead of time... instructions later in the post!  
Adhere the fussy cut dress to the stamped image on the card. Stamp the sentiment "Anything I can imagine I can do" on white card stock and layer on black, adhere to the card. Adhere three Robins Nest's Dew Drops as juggling balls with Sakura Crystal Lacquer!

Creating Textured Borders on Cards 
and what ever trinkets you want!  

Attach Viva Las Vegastamps! Miracle Tape to the card.  Remove the protective covering, add trinkets (locking washers) and fill with seed beads. Cover with Sakura Crystal Lacquer, set aside to dry 24 hours. 

Using the same technique here are two variations. On the left, are locking washers with Robins Nest Dew Drops. The trim on the right is the one used on the Headless Unicycle Juggler card above. It is made with Robins Nest Dew Drops and Terri Sproul's Gold Glitter Glitz! Covered with Sakura Crystal Lacquer and set aside to dry 24 hours.

Be sure to join the design team 
and "Link Up" on May 26th & 27th!

We plan to have tons of fun with 
Mary Vogel Lozniak's VLVS!
