Pebbles tutorial and a DT Call!

Pebbles Inc. has such awesome pre-made embellishments...that is one of the things that puts them head and shoulders above other companies but sometimes you just want to get your hands dirty! Here is a simple and fun technique that just may fill that bill!

I gathered the products I needed.


Stamp your image on an acrylic inchie... some drying time may be needed. I also edged each inchie with ink to create a framed look on each.



Do this on several Inchies and embellish them with Stickles. Here are a few examples.



Embellish your layout with the decorated inchies.



This is a super simple technique that really adds a unique and creative flair to your art. A little bit of ink on the edge of each tile added a frame to each piece which flowed well with the grid design of the layout! If you did not notice...the Floral Lane release is textured like cardstock...can I say brilliant! LOVE IT!!!


If you have not heard...it is time for Pebbles DT call! Check it out here. I have been part of this team since the beginning and have loved every minute of it! Throw your hat it you will not be sorry you did!
