Now, I also need to take care of a little business. I was just tickled pink to win a few honors over the last week. One at Freshly Made Sketches for THIS card. I was chosen a "Perfect Princess" by the lovely Cindy Hall!
This week is a sketch by Allisa (also very lovely.) So, my first thought for the shape was a Christmas tree, but that changed. It may be a little obscure but the sketch is there!
The other challenge I did well with...Stampin' Royalty. I made their top three with THIS card and have been given the title of "Goddess." Hee! Hee! This week they have a gorgeous photo to play with! I knew exactly what stamp I wanted to use.
Then, a glitter challenge over at City Crafter Challenge. I don't use glitter too often. Love the effects, not the mess!
Anyway, here's what I came up with:
I'd like to share a few tips about the glitter I used. I hope you find them useful.
This is a close-up my test sample. Sorry, it's out of focus! But see how the pink glitter has migrated onto the silver? Also, the black isn't very vibrant on that white paper. I "fixed" that by adhering the glitter to strips similar to the glitter color BEFORE I adhered them to the card.
My favorite technique for making glitter stick is using adhesive like Sticky Strip (Scor-tape) or a sticker maker (like a Xyron.) This is one of my strips before peeling away the backing and adding the glitter.
It worked great! Super easy and my strips are very straight. Success!
OK, now that I have that out of my system...I will go back to commenting and blog surfing!
