Cheers to You on Father's Day

STAMP SET: Cheers to You
PAPER: Whisper White, More Mustard, Not Quite Navy
INK: Stazon, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Bashful Blue,
ACCESSORIES:Aquapainter, Crystal Effects, pop up glue dots, heating tool
TECHNIQUE: Watercolor, Froth

How to make the Froth:
Mix equal parts of salt, flour and water. Mix dry ingredients thoroughly together. Add water. You want to end up with a thick glue paste. If you want to add color to mixture, now is the time. I dropped a couple of drops of white craft ink. Place your mixture in to area you want it to be. Using your heat tool, heat up your mixture. It will turn a slight shade different and then start to bubble up. I allow mine to completely bubble up. It took about 25-30 seconds. When the top images are done, I went and heated up the back for about 6-7 seconds. The top of the froth will continue to harden as it cools.

This shot is to show you the Crystal Effects on the mugs of beer. It was just an additional step and I love how it turned out!

All products were 100% Stampin' Up except for the Froth :)

Happy Stampin'~Barbara Jean
