Hi Crafty Friends,
Are you ready for a new Fun Friday challenge at Your Next Stamp? Challenge #176 is "Face Your Fears"! Make sure you let us know what FEAR you are facing? A color combo? A technique? A spider? A Monster on your card?
I used the Crafty Cocktails stamp set and created my background using Distress Oxide Squeezed Lemonade, ink splatters, and my FEAR... GLITTER! I'm always so nervous about using glitter on projects because it can get everywhere! However, using the yellow glitter paste with the Fruit Slice Stencil was an easy clean up.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is your crafty fear?
A: Me? Glitter



Supplies:
Your Next Stamp Crafty Cocktails Stamp Set
Your Next Stamp Fruit Slice Stencil
Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangle Frames Die Set

Comment on the Your Next Stamp Blog Post, Your Next Stamp Facebook Page, and Your Next Stamp Instagram for a chance to win a free stamp set, comments must be left by November 3rd and don't forget to comment on the Facebook Group and Instagram. The challenge runs through November 11th at midnight EST. Enter on the YNS Blog and you can win a $15 Gift Card and an extra $5 if your project uses YNS Products.
