Fabulous Finds Friday — Judikins

What’s new at Judikins? Sock monkeys! These are the cutest little images — I may need them all!

Check them out: (The only one missing is the original-looking sock monkey — he was so popular he was sold out before I got to the Judikins booth at the Carson show!)

Another Fab Find is a technique using Judikins’ Mica Gloss  inks,  demonstrated by Cherryl Greene. What I loved about Cherryl’s technique was that nothing was wasted — she used shrink plastic as her palette, then stamped and shrunk the plastic into an attractive embellishment.

She used Judikins’ Mica Gloss inks, either matte or gloss cardstock (depending on the look), shrink plastic and stamps for several techniques. Here is just one sample. She put a few drops of ink on her shrink plastic then used a brayer to apply the ink to a stamp, which she then stamped on glossy cardstock. Love the shimmer!

Other techniques include dropping three colors of Mica Gloss on a postcard, spreading the ink around, then "smooshing" another postcard on top. When you pull the cards apart, there is a pretty background on each. You can do the same by putting drops on your palette, spreading the color and picking it up with a brayer.Below, Cherry takes that inky shrink plastic, cuts it, shrinks it and stamps into it while it is still hot. Cherryl Greene demos shrink mica magic at the Judikins booth.

While the plastic is still warm, Cherryl presses a stamp down, creating an impression. She then sprinkles on Judikins’ new glaze-like powder (it looks like embossing powder, but it’s not), sets it on a hot plate so the powder melts, and has a beautiful glazed embellishment.
