Let's talk about glitter. Basically, it's my favorite thing in the world, and my least favorite thing all in one. There is nothing that makes a card sing more than some open sprinkles of shimmer... but it gets EVERYWHERE.
I am fairly certain my vacuum cleaner is the sparkliest and fanciest sucking machine around.
I started my design with some black cardstock and nice layer of Fossilized Amber Distress Oxides. I spritzed it with a little bit o' water to create some dimension.
Next, I used some gold texture paste through the Strobes stencil and then pressed some loose glitter into it.
I used my heat tool gun to make the texture paste dry. I also love the way it makes the paste crack and bubble.
I stamped and embossed a lightbulb from the Shining Bright stamp set on a piece of heavyweight vellum.
I love how inspirational this set is!
I cut out the lightbulb and applied a thin layer of glue to the back, then busted out the glitter for real, pressing it into the glue.
I put all the pieces together, along with a sentiment from the same Shining Bright stamp set.
This card really shines in the sunlight! I can't wait to give it to someone!
Thanks for popping by!
