Ya Seen Them All

Here's something I have never done before - emboss and paint on glitter cardstock.  Because the theme of the card is about snow (Snowman Arms Up by Darice), I wanted it really glittery.  Embossing the glitter cardstock was ok, but I had to add color for it to stand out, especially the snow.  Ink pads will definitely not work.  And I didn't want to use white paint because that meant I had to use a brush, and that meant I had to wash the brush afterwards.  So I experimented and used paint markers.  The Posca by Uni in white worked great!  I did use Copics for the detailed parts, but very carefully as I didn't want to ruin them with the texture of the glitter cardstock.  I love the snowflake bling I bought from Joann's long time ago.  It was a good bunch from their dollar section.

I thought this sentiment by Unity worked well with the design.  DH thought otherwise... lol!

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Paper Reflections, Colorbok, DCWV, Recollections
image/sentiment:  Unity
ink:  Uni, Copic, Tsukineko
tools:  Darice, Martha Stewart

This was the most glittery card I've ever made, and I love it!  'Til next blog!
