My studio is really sparkling these days!
The CAS Mix Up Challenge this month is
|Using stamping, glitter, splash watercolour, fiber elements and heat embossing|
Thanks for the wonderful inspiration Mac!
I've had these leaves in my stash for several years and Mac's feathers made me think of them.
I messed up a few and discovered that less is definitely more with glitter!
First I spread some glue on the edge of a leaf and dumped some glitter over it.
While the glue was drying and hopefully securing the glitter (does anything really secure glitter?),
I used Loll's Splash Watercolour Background Technique to do a background.
When everything was dry, I adhered the leaves, a little stamping and
heat embossing and I was finished.
There are some great tutorials on using glitter. You'll find links at
the CAS Mix Up Challenge site.
There's also some amazing inspriation cards over there.
Our Design team and Guest Designer, Robyn (Waterlily cards by Robyn)
have outdone themselves with their beautiful creations!
Hope to see your glittery creations over there.
Challenge is open until the 24th.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
