All that glitters


Welcome





Now I am not a glitter person but I was determined to join in and get over my dislike! I thought perhaps one way to use glitter in small parts was to create a card I liked then to add a limited amount of glitter. Then comes that age old question what do I stick it with........ heat and stick powder????? .... the favourite fine tip glue,....... use glittery embossing powder or something else. To be honest I'm never quite sure and thats probably why I don't use glitter often.

For my card I started with something I had already made then upped it! I used tombo to stick the glitter on. I put a largish blob of tombo on a clear block and dragged the die cut through it so that the amount of glue wasn't even all the way around, I think it looks a bit like how the snow sticks to things. I do have a vivid imagination...... Then I put small dots of glue on the craft white stamped snowflakes, these are from the penguin set. Hope you like it.
