Go Confidently Masculine Mixed Media Card for Donna Salazar Designs

Hello again my sweet crafting friends. It's my turn to be up on the Donna Salazar Designs Blog today with a masculine mixed media card featuring her Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Pigment Powders and Girlie Grunge Art Medium.

Do you ever create a project, and it becomes one of your favorites. That's just how I feel about this card with these gorgeous colors and cool textures. 

Remember those epoxy stickers that fit into bottle caps? You know the ones that are so old that they've turned yellow with age. I was ready to throw some out the other day when I thought I'd see if I could alter them using Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products. I couldn't be happier with the way they turned out. Stop by Donna's blog for more photos and all the details HERE.
