Etching made easy!

Hello!  It's Monday and time for a weekend project review!
 I decided to try my hand at etching.  Sweet Melissa and I took a class a couple summers ago, and I'd never tried it since.  I found some glassware at the thrift store, and realized if my idea didn't turn out, hey, I wouldn't be "out" alot of money. 
These are the glasses I found.  Aged to perfection.
After taping off the desired area for my "design" (and I use this word lightly) I added various letters, symbols and numbers from my scrapbooking stash.  No particular order, but I tried to space them about the same distance apart.
Once the stickers were on, I followed the directions on the Armor Etch Cream. The cream was applied very thick as recommended.
Like I said...put on quite thick.
Left on for about a minute, and washed off the cream in warm water...I love the way they turned out - none are the same!
They are perfect for a cocktail or an ice cream sundae - I'm lovin' them so much, I may try to do more!
