SYD Day 2- Card 1

SYD_participant

I struggled with this technique I ruined so much work trying to get it down, so in the end I changed it up and did it in my own way and let it evolve. Have to say I am super stoked with the results

Used: Cheery Lynn Leaves 1, Jac paper, Martha Stewart Crystal Glitter, Prima Stamp, Pearls, Watercolour Paper, Distress Stains and Utee clear.

ATC Swap: Little Houses

Recently at Jellybeans we had an ATC swap with the theme little houses. How perfect I thought as I had gotten a wee quickutz die of a little house.

So I decided to cut all the elements of the little houses out of double sided jac paper and glitter my houses after all who else would do sparkle houses?

I also used my distress stains to create the background and a franchville glitter buttony thing to create my moon.

The pic are not very good sorry but anyone who has tried to take photos of glitter knows how hard it can be so forgive the poor quality of the pic 🙂

It does look a lot better in person but I thought they turned out rather cute 🙂

Tag 9 Mark 2 Get Ready to Sparkle

Today’s technique reminded me of one using glitter and Jac Paper. So inspired by Tim’s tag today these are a glitter version of a similar style background technique. You could also use flock instead of glitter.

  1. Pick up the tag with the glimmer screen still attached and shake off excess glitter (put glitter back in container I use a piece of paper to glitter over to save mess and make for easy return of excess)
  2. Peel off your glimmer screen and sprinkle over your other colour of glitter then shake off excess. Yes it really is that simple and looks great when done. Here are two examples of the backgrounds I created reversing which order I did the colours in
