Sometimes, a girl just needs to go nuts with glitter. And this card is an example of one of those times for me 🙂 The image was a freebie at the Kit and Clowder Facebook group’s 15,000 member celebration, courtesy of the lovely sponsor LaLa Land 🙂 I colored Marci‘s skin and hair up with my SN markers, then decided to take a walk on the wild side and color her dress and bows, using a fine glue pen and loose glitter. It was a bit of a challenge, as I was trying to keep all the shading as it should be, especially on the teeny bows!! (Yes, there are 2 shades of green in those suckers) I fussy cut her out and decided to use this sketch, and technique challenge from The Sketchy Challenges, for the card layout.
The instructions are to use a mask or medium that you’ve never tried for the background…since I seem to always be trying new things, and was too broke to buy some new goodies to play with, I cracked the seal on my sticky embossing powder and used it on the background. When it was stamped and embossed, I was really surprised at how sticky it was!! I dumped glitter all over it, to create a sparkly background, to coordinate with the dress. I added a strip of white ribbon, that I adhered rhinestone letters spelling Party onto, then matted it on even more glitter CS! As it wasn’t quite glittery and glitzy enough (bahaha), I added a few sequins as a finishing touch!
