To Glitter or not to Glitter...that was the question....



Another rainy day….another not so great day for those of us who suffer from trigeminal neuralgia…it doesn’t like low atmospheric pressure! This morning was a very lazy morning because I just didn’t feel like doing anything and wondered how I was going to put in the day….and then my friend Jane rang the doorbell. She just decided to stop in for a visit – her timing was wonderful! After she left Joe said, “How nice Jane stopped in. That filled some time for you didn’t it!” This afternoon I felt a little better and went down and made some more cards….no quilting on these days!

To glitter or not glitter was my thought the other day and the glitter won. I had made some other cards with these new Penny Black dies and added coloured glitter which was okay but not great. So, I wondered what clear glitter would look like on them. Here is a card I made without glitter and then with the clear glitter added. What a difference.



The background paper was run through the Big Shot in an embossing folder and then glued to the white card base. The flower was stamped (Penny Black stamp) after being inked up with Tombow markers onto water colour paper. Then it was die cut with a Spellbinder’s fancy rectangle die. Clear gems were added to the centre of the flower and on four spots on the rectangle. The silver sentiment is a peel off. It was okay but it just lacked something. So I added some clear glitter!



 This just took the card to an all new level. Love how it turned out. And no it's not crooked - the photographer's camera loves to take photos crooked!

That’s all for a rainy Wednesday,

Cheers
Violet
