I really really want the new polkadoodles cd, as the images look just fab!! but I will have to sit on my hands for the mo....but I gave myself a good talking to as although I want more (why is it when it comes to craft you NEED everything!!) I have not really used the ones I have fully yet.....been on a production line of engagement cards and 25th cards for all my friends, and just not really had time to play!.......so I pulled out my "back to nature cd" and decided to try a technique that I have never tried before...
I printed this butterfly out on acetate, and glittered it up from the reverse...I wasn't sure if I had the right glue for the job...but I just used my glue pen and it worked out fine! I have not played with loose glitter in ages..normally use stickles...so I had glitter everywhere!!!! This was a bit time consuming but I love the result, and think it may become a new addiction....although I will have to run out and buy some more heat resistant acetate!
I Love the butterfly, but I am not sure about the rest of the card...I have used some lilac pearl card, and using a cuttlebug folder I have embossed some pearl paper...Then Just added some ribbon and gems...and stamped a little flourish on the edge of the mat.
This is my entry for:
Polkadoodles - winged things with a touch of stamping
Thanks for looking
