Glitzy Glue Dots!
What a fun challenge going on over at the CAS-ual Friday's blog! I never would have thought of doing this on my own. I had such fun using glitter, which I rarely do. I've made two cards for the challenge but first, I want to show you how I created those fun, little glittery dots. Here's a photo:
I used the larger glue dots and poured pink and purple glitter all over them. Then I used a hole-punch, to punch out the perfect circles, to use on my cards. Here's the first one, using the Hero Arts Artists Butterfly:
I colored it with Copics before adding the dots. I had a bunch of dots left over, so I decided to use them on another fun card.
The grayish looking dots are actually a beautiful dark purple color but I was not able to capture it in the photo! This card was made with all scraps from my desk, except for the card base, which I stamped and white embossed with the Hero Arts Raindrop Background.
There is now glitter EVERYWHERE! Even on my (white) cat, Murphy! hee, hee!
It's a beautiful day here today! I've opened the windows for the first time in a long while and that fresh air smells sooo good! I'm heading outside to enjoy it and work in the gardens. Hope you all have a wonderful day too and thanks for stopping by! :)
