The challenge this week at the Hero Arts Blog is to use glitter on a project. I have used it here and there, just to highlight an edge, but never as a main part of the design. I had no idea of the dimension that is achieved; it's almost like applique or flocking! Here is a card I made today:
I stamped the main image in a tri-color ink, then colored in most of the flowers with pink, orange, and yellow colored pencils. Then I went over each flower with a fine-point glue pen, dipping the panel into glitter while the glue was still wet. After everything had dried well, I used double-stick tape to go all around the white edges, and then dipped the whole thing again in glitter. Then I just mounted it on an aqua card and added orange gemstones to the centers of the flowers.
And here's another card, this time the dark pink glitter is used only as an accent on the butterfly and in the flourish below it.
