Thinking of You Card

Firstly a very Happy Easter to everyone out there !!!!
I made the background square for this card using the lace glitter method and two colours of ultra-fine glitter.

This was achieved by using double-sided clear adhesive sheet. A square was cut and one side of the protective cover removed. A piece of cotton lace was then adhered to the sheet and the first colour (midnight blue) of the glitter poured over the lace and rubbed well in with the finger. The excess glitter was tapped off and then the lace removed leavinf a pattern. The second colour of glitter was then applied (leaf green) and similarly rubbed well in with the finger before tapping off the excess. I then used a soft brush to remove loose glitter.

The base card was lightly chalked with emerald decorating chalk and a leaf stencil used to highlight the pattern and I used a cotton wool bud to apply the chalk through the stencil. The chalk was set with a coat of cheap hairspray. The backing sheet off the glitter square was then carefully removed and the film adhered to the card. The embellishments are three die-cut mirri board hearts in matching colours, suitably layered and finished with a large faceted green flat-backed jewel. These were applied with glossy accents. Finally the sentiment was stamped with ultramarine Stazon.
