Smashing and Lovin' it!!

No, not smashed ----smashing!!

I really enjoyed the smashing technique last week on Splitcoast Stampers, try a new technique challenge, so I borrowed Marcie's red alcohol ink and did up some more paper!

This time I used my black ink and her red ink and it turned out pretty cool!

I used it on this altered coaster (WHAT you say!!) Yes I did another altered item......unbelievable.....but I am kind of liking these coasters and since I have 100 of them I NEED to do something with them!!

I used up the rest of the French script background paper that I had made here, and attached it to my coaster.

Then I just cut part of my smashing paper and added it to the coaster. I covered the seam with a bright lime green polka dot Offray ribbon.

I added some frost lace stickles to a couple of Heidi Swapp white flowers and added it to the ribbon with a MM BIG heart brad!!

Kind of cute!! in a shabby chic sort of way!!
Speaking of smashing!!

---Did you see the Daytona 500 yesterday???!!!

Oh my goodness - our guy Ryan Newman, WON!!

It was such a good race near the end! Kind of a sleeper the whole way until the last 20 laps.....fabulous! We were (and kind of still are )- pumped!!!



  1. Totally shabby chic!!! Love it!

  2. What a great look! I admit to passing right over that technique but may have to revisit after seeing such a wonderful use of it. When I first saw the technique named, I'll admit to thinking of the band Smashing Pumpkins (from my college days).

    Happy for your NASCAR win. My father-in-law and brother-in-law are huge fans. I don't think we have every been over for a Sunday dinner without there being a race on.
