JustRite's Mega Font Hop & Mini Tutorial!

OK, buckle down, cuz this is gonna be a long post! I have a couple of projects here to show you and a mini tutorial! This first project alters a Ghiradelli chocolate bag. I used the JR Brayton font on my horizontal wood stamper to stamp the words, Boo (95pt) & EEK! (25 pt) There were stamped with Versamark and sprinkled with black embossing powder. The center image is JR's Witch Way to The Treats, set. It was also stamped in Versmark and black embossing powder. I added sparkle to his body using my Sakura glue pen and ultrafine glitter.

The rectangles were cut using my Spellbinder's Nestibilities.

My next projects uses the Brayton font (95pt) as well. (Can you tell it's one of my favorite fonts?) I wanted to achieve a two toned effect. (Which if you scroll down I show you how to do it!) So I used a combination of orange and black inks. I cut the words out and placed them over my felt spider web. I did some sewing, added a bat and spider. (Which are sparkly.....gotta love a spider or bat who sparkles!) : )

I love the look of the two colors!

Here is a quick easy way to get those two tone letters! I used the 95 pt Curlz Font for this example.




And here is another finished example using this fun technique!
I am so glad you stopped by today! Don't forget to stop on by the other talented designers! Not only will you be incredibly inspired, but you may have a shot at winning JR's secret blog candy! It is such a mystery that not even the designers know who has the blog candy! So leave some love here and at the other blogs for your chance to win some fabulous prizes!

Happy Friday!!!
