Stinkin Cute really Stinks!

Okay, so it's not "STINKY" as in bad, but "SMELLY" as in fruity goodness!! Yep, I tried that smell-it technique after promising myself for the last 4 years I would... and how fun it was!

Here's the resulting card - and though the negative image is a bit sloppy, I am chalking it up to using Kool-Aid powder which gets everywhere and telling everyone that if the skunk can't stink, it's gotta be a little messy! lol

Woo-hoo! I have this set and have really been struggling to come up with something fabulous. Do you have instructions on how to make the snikk part?

Glad to see you back!

The smelly card is a way cute idea for that set....lol! I used koolaid too, I was wondering if it would be less sloppy if a different sugar free drink mix was used...I dunno. Have to try it out I guess!! I did notice that it worked better for me when I used a colored embossing powder. When I used clear it didn't dry as well. ANYWHO - very fun!
