Fast Finish Fall Blog Hop With Beacon Adhesives and Stampendous

This week the Stampendous Design Team and Blog Stars have been sharing beautiful inspiration using Stampendous Stamps and Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage Medium. Fast Finish is a miracle product! It dries super fast and there is no tackiness, which is a big deal if you do alot of home decor and you don't do alot of dusting, amirite?



Since card making is where i'm most comfortable, I decided to use Fast Finish on a card panel. I used Carousel Circus Perfectly Clear™ Stamps and several bright colors of spray inks to create my card panel. Then I used Fast Finish to shine it up. I wanted it to look like a poster and I think the Fast Finish gave it just the right amount of shine. I used watercolor paper and several layers of Fast Finish, letting each coat dry before applying the next.

Be sure and visit the rest of the Stampendous team for more amazing inspiration! The whole team is playing along today, so be sure to visit all of the blogs and leave some insightful, kind comments (the kind that let us know you looked at the project) and we'll give some great prizes, sending some of you with U.S. mailing addresses some Fast Finish Decoupage Medium and some Stampendous Stamps. Here we go...

Like you, I make more cards than home decor items, so I appreciate that you have shown us a way to use this medium on a card. The colors are so bright and fun and the shine does, indeed, make it look like a poster. Thanks!

I would totally use this product this way too. Sometimes you want a shine and would be great if you used sprays with some extra particles.
