Challenge #11

 On Lori's shower invitation, I asked everyone to bring their favorite recipe and one ingredient.  I said we would  use these recipe cards for a drawing for a nice gift.  I wanted to make this gift, so I etched a vase/candle that I had purchased quite a long time ago.    I wish you could see it in real life as it is so pretty.  It is very hard to get a good picture especially since I am not the best photographer.
This picture is with green material and a Votive Candle I made when I had my Soap and Candle
 The next picture is with lace added over the green

This shows the vase without the candle.
Etching  with the Armour Etching Cream is very easy if you get the right image.  The first image I tried  was more detailed without a lot of etching space, so I did another one and I really love it.
Lots of possibilities for wedding gifts, showers, and many of your household glass items you would like to label
There are great videos on YouTube for Etching with this the Armour Cream, especially using the Silhouette and Cricut.
