Clear Artistic Stamps #3

Here's another card for my guest designer month at Clear Artistic Stamps! Yep, more glitter. :-) This was last week's featured project on the guest designer page - so that means there's a new card up now! Check it out here.

Card Instructions:

Cut Celery cardstock to 4.25" x 11", score and fold the long side at 5.5" and set aside. Stamp image from Nature in Word onto the acetate sheet (I used overhead transparancies) using Black StazOn. Once it is dry, flip it over and apply glue from the Quickie Glue Pen, using it just like a marker. Working in small areas, focusing on one color of glitter at a time, add glitter to the image. Be careful not to apply too much glue or go outside of the lines! Once you've coated the first area of your image in glue, cover with your first color of glitter. {I have a LOT of glitter, and I only use ultrafine art glitter. Mine is all from either Art Institute, or my local stamping store, which buys bulk and then sells in 1 oz jars.} Tap off excess. Repeat this series of steps for each section and/or color of glitter. Let the glittered images dry very well (I set them aside overnight).

Cut a piece of Artichoke cardstock to 5.5" x 1.5". Layer on the chocolate satin ribbon and adhere with mini glue dots. Over the top of that layer on the gold organdy and the RicRack. Put the finished panel onto the Celery card base using dimensionals. I cut out the glittered image and applied Mono Multi very lightly to a few of the glittered areas so I could adhere it to the card base. I used my Stampin' Up! photo corner punch {because it has 2 sizes} and made punches with Chocolate Chip and Artichoke cardstock. I layere them and added the Brilliant Blue brads using my paper piercing tool.

Here's a close up of the main image to try to show the sparkle!
