Halloween Sprite in Glittery Resin

Are you ready for a week of fun from Stampendous! and Envirotex?  You can catch posts at the Stampendous Blog and  Resin Crafts Blog all week!  EnviroTex Craft Resin is the store site for this fun sticky stuff, so go check it out!   You can float or embed all kinds of amazing stuff in the resin...ooh... Fran•táge, here we come!


For my project today I knew I wanted to float some of the new Trick or Treat Color Fragments (coming this month to a store near you!)  So, I needed a slightly bigger piece of media to work with than the bottle caps and bezels that I had.  I grabbed a couple of square Ranger Memory Glass Frames and went to work!

First I stamped my image, Halloween Sprite ( a new large stamp from Stampendous available soon) and cut out a small portion.  I also cut a chipboard square the same size.  After I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers I applied a thin coat of Glossy Accents to seal the color and let that dry.  Then I adhered this to the chipboard then inserted it into the frame.

Next I added a small amount of my craft resin to the inside of the frame then dropped in bits of Trick or Treat Color Fragments and Black Glass glitter.  Finally I added more of the resin and let it set.  This stuff is like a kazillion coats of varnish, so pretty and shiny, but takes forever to dry so I did the whole project over my Craft mat so I could peel it off if any escaped the frame!  Added a few ribbon scrps and voila!

  5. Hi Cyndi, Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. I love halloween! And this is a really fun stamp; I love it! It seems like a pretty cool technique your working with. I never tried it, might be a thing I'll put on my "someday, when I have the right supplies"-list I have for trying out new things. Too bad I can't join in on the fun of the give-away because of my location but whoever will win it; I wish them lots and lots of fun while crafting with it! Greetz Dee
