Here is my story. Lizzie Ann Designs is celebrating their 2 year anniversary and I had been wanting to make a card for their contest. They had several sketches to enter and I of course procrastinated and then I finally decided that I was going to get down to it. I love their fairy stamp and wanted to use glitter because I've just been into glitter. I really need to get a different color, but right now, I'm into purple and purple glitter.
Well, I'm working away on my card and then BLAM it hits me. Wait a second, I'm supposed to be following a sketch - duh!!! Oh well, the point being is that I really still like this stamp and I had my own vision and I enjoyed making my card.
Again, this isn't exactly what I had envisioned, but the end result was nice. Glitter is one of those things that I just can't capture in photography. The purple Martha Stewart glitter is really shimmery and pretty. I used it all over the place on this card. The star shaped mat was cut using my cricut and the circle was cut using my nestabilty. I just took a zig glue pen and then sprinkled glitter on the tips as well as on the fairy. I did color her first with my copics. Then I used a glue pad to edge my cardstock as well as stamp my sentiment (Stamping Bella) and then sprinkled glitter onto that. Since I don't have any gold glitter, I used my Copic Spica gold glitter pen to add sparkle to her crown, wand, and her dotted trail. I love those glitter pens. I also had no intention of dotting the background of my fairy, but mistakes lead to altered visions I guess :) Rhinestones are Hero Arts and are self adhesive - the only way to go if you can.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Hope you have a great day.
