Now I sit here with glitter in my hair, on my face and all over my work surface (I wouldn't be at all surprised if I sneeze glitter at some point today) I need to write up the blog post for my competition entry, my brain is muffled from this cold so please excuse any typos, spelling mistakes or ramblings on my part!
Close up of the glittered seed heads
I started this card with a piece of card (6 inches by 4 inches) on which I had already created a blended ink background using 3 Stampin' Up ink spots (Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight) and a Tim Holtz blending tool. I have decided to do a line of cards like these (all different but along the same premise) so please keep coming back to see more of my projects using this technique.
The next step was to choose a Lavinia product to use, sadly I only have 2 sets (one borrowed from my mum), however I love the seed heads and hadn't up until today had a chance to use them. These stamps come straight in the packet but I decided to curve them on my project for a different effect, they are stamped with memento ink in Tuxedo Black, as is the Happy Birthday sentiment in the lower right hand corner.
To 'Add Some Glitter' I used my Creative Memories glue pen (I actually prefer my sakura quickie glue pen but I couldn't get it to work) to add glue to some of the seed heads, I did this one colour at a time, the image on the right was sprinkled with red glitter whilst the left uses orange glitter.
The finished product
Thanks again for reading my blog, please do follow me for regular inspiration, it's great to share ideas with like minded people, back to bed I go armed with a big mug of lemsip, my hot water bottle and a box of tissues,
PS - apologies that my instructions aren't as clear as usual, the cold had numbed my thought processes today!
