                                    Brief Tutorial on Etching
Supplies Needed: Votive, Paint Brush, Vinyl, Cricut, Cartridge, Etch Creme

Armour Etch All

Cut the Fleur De Lis from Gypsy Wanderings on Vinyl at 1inch
Adhered it to the glass votive smoothing out the air bubbles
Then I liberally brushed on the etch creme and let it sit according to directions
I rinsed with warm water then removed the vinyl

Here is the finished product.. A Votive with a cute Fleur de Lis etched on it! Love it!

Layout using Imagine Nursery Tales
Page printed at 12x12
Outfits cut at 2.0
Photo Mats cut to 3x3
mushroom and bird come from the same cut I jut didn't use the base layer 
cut at 2.0
Ric-Rac Ribbon from Close to my Heart
Twine from The Twinery - Cappuccino

to show the dimension added with foam adhesive

This was a clearance magnet letter I picked up from A.C. Moore for .25
I used Teresa Collins Baby Boutique Cartridge, Blue Damask Paper to cover the letter
painted the letter black, as it was white
and adhered this cute little flower made from recycled paper
and misted with Tattered Angels Turquoise Mist
Ribbon is from Close to My Heart

This card front was left over paper from a project earlier in the week
I didn't want to cover up the cite deer with the bird on it so I just
left it as is and placed the sentiment inside the card.
Paper from Imagine Snow Angel Cart

This Votive was decorated using Ribbon from Close to My Heart
The bottle cap has a .75 inch piece of paper punched from a 1 inch circle printed using the TC Black & White Cartridge
The flower was made with a circle from a 1inch cut using a different pattern on the cartridge
LOVE how it turned out!
