Fling Glitter At It

Published December 23, 2012 by isisimaginings

Evening all, I hope your Sunday has been fabulous, despite the horrible weather that seems to be never-ending.

I’d like to show you a commissioned card today.  The brief was a card for a girl, who likes purple, pink, green & lots of sparkle.

The first thing I did was create a background using Dylusions spray inks – if you want vibrant colour, you cannot go wrong with these.  I’ve discovered that what works for me is spraying the inks on to my craft sheet, spritzing them with water & then putting the cardstock on top.  I pat off the excess with paper towel & dry with my heat tool & I do that until I’ve used all the ink.  I find I can build up plenty of layers that way.

I spritzed water through the Dylusions snowflake stencil for a ‘bleached’ effect, which then was mostly covered when I flicked more water on top & very quickly sprinkled Stampendous Fran’tage EP over that.  I LOVE that EP sticks to the wet paper, you get a very imprecise finish.

I found a little flourish stamp in my Christmas stash & added that.

The dress is a Kanban stamp.  I stamped it first on the off cut from the background, then again onto white card, cutting it out & colouring with Promarkers.  I curved the skirt around a pot of EP & attached it with silicon glue, so that you can partially see the dress underneath.

I used a glue pen & Glamour Dust on the skirt & a glitter pen to highlight other areas.  I wish the photos could show you the sparkle on this card, it’s completely OTT.  I just hope the recipient likes it.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, I appreciate it very much.  Until tomorrow, (Christmas Eve – gulp!!!), take care &

Love & light (with glitter on top)
