I have been wanting to play with different techniques for glittery images with color.
This was my first attempt and it has TONS of sparkle in person.
I started off by finding a drawing of a rose I liked on the internet. I printed the drawing and then traced it onto a transparency sheet with a fine tip black Sharpie.
Then I flipped it over and used a couple sharpies to color the rose. After it was all colored I used some Crystal Effects glue from Stampin' Up to apply the glitter to the back. I had to do this in small sections so the glue would be wet enough to hold the glitter.
I left this to dry for a long time. After it was really nice and dry I cut it out using my scissors. I was surprised at how easily my scissors cut through the layers of glue and glitter, but it was nice and easy.
Once it was cut out I mounted it onto some black cardstock. I just used the same Crystal Effects glue. I applied it in large dots all over the back of the rose and placed it on the cardstock. Then I put some weight on it and left it to dry.
I layered it onto some green cardstock for a pop of color. Then I layered it onto a purple card front.
I stamped a sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Happy For You in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
For a finishing touch I added some fun bling in pink and green.
Thanks so much for visiting and for all the sweet comments and e-mails. I'm still very ill, but I'm trying several things in hopes to feel better. I am trying to craft and blog visit as I'm able but I am very limited physically.
