Crafturday Creative Mess 5 - Rock star!!

Today in Crafturday Creative Mess, I am featuring one of my favourite bloggers Gail Jacobson. I love reading Gail’s site “Cant stop making things “. It contains instructions to make crafts that don't require special skills or expensive materials yet result in professional looking items that you can use or proudly give as gifts.
In this episode of C.C.M gail teaches us how to transform a simple plain rock into a beautiful gift.
Supplies you will need:
1.Smooth rock
2.Foiling pen (gold leafing or rubber stamp department of Michael's)
3.Silver embossing powder
4.Stazon black ink

1.Heat gun
2.Small alphabet rubber stamps

Draw a star on the rock with the foiling pen. Let it dry until clear (about 5 minutes).
Place the rock on a piece of copy paper and cover the star with silver embossing powder. Turn the rock over and tap it lightly to let the excess powder fall onto the paper. Use a small paint brush to remove any stray bits of powder. Fold the paper slightly and pour the excess powder into its container. Replace the lid (important - you don't want to accidentally melt all the powder in the container). Heat the star with the heat gun until the powder melts and the lines get shiny.

Stamp "You Are A" on the rock.
