Suze posted a peek at her Ranger Designer Challenge so I feel compelled to put one up for you guys to look at, too, cause this was SO much fun to do!!! You know me and Row Houses....right? They were probably one of the 1st things I made with chipboard, metal, and "happy crap" as my daughter politely calls my collectible "stuff that makes me smile." Ya gotta love somethin'!
So when Ranger sent Perfect Pearl Mists and Perfect Pearl Powders....I mean, hey, I'm goin' with the houses! You cannot go wrong with Tim's Alterations Dies, Grungeboard and Grungepaper. What a match for trimming out these little guys.
Then, look at the Mists on the metal that was embossed, painted with Pitch Black Acrylic Paint Dabber and sprayed with the Sunflower Sparkle PP Mist!!! Amazing or what???? The frame was painted black and sprayed with Heirloom Gold It shows up silvery!
Tim's Crown Charm is painted with a brush with Copper Metallic Mixative. Love that stuff on metal. And all the shiny colors you see are Perfect Pearls and water mixed to form a paint. It's on the frame and cutout Grungeboard pieces layered on the houses for dimension.
I used Tim's Lost and Found Paper Stash for the background and most of the houses. Here and there is some Shabby Chic thrown in for contrast. I also used Clear Snaps Design Adhesives on the frames. They are a rub-on adhesive that LOVES to be used with the Perfect Pearls.
See the diamonds on the frame? Yep, PP on the adhesive designs. Works like a charm. Try it and let me know what you think!

Everyone was so nervous, but they all were great!!!Longest competition the Principle can remember. See the cute guy next to Erin...she's the blond on the end left in front? He's in 4th grade and he WON! Beat all the older kids.
Way to go Grundy Gators....or is it Gaters...Spellcheck please!!!
