OK, I'm not gonna lie. When I saw the topic that Erin Lincoln came up with for this week's Make It Monday technique on Nichole Heady's blog, I was not sure whether I wanted to try it. Glitter and I typically do not get along very well! But, I had an idea of where to go with it, and after all, the whole point of the MIM challenges is to try new things, right? :) So off I went!
Just today, I got Damask Designs in the mail, as part of a lovely prize package from a blog giveaway I won at Are You On the Fence, so I was eager to put it to use! So I used the Mat Stack 5 die, splitting it in half to use on either side of the card front. I liked the Hawaiian Shores and Smokey Shadow color combo, but I wanted another pop of color so added the Eyelet Lace border to each edge in Raspberry Fizz.
Here is a close-up look at the glitter border, and the bit of bling I added to the sentiment (Creative Charms clear gems colored with a Copic to match). The sentiment is from the Round and Round anniversary set, and is on a banner from Banner Builder.
Well, thanks for the challenge Erin, and for pushing me outside of my comfortable little box! :) I'm not sure that I'm converted to a glitter fan, but it was fun to pull it out for this project, and I'm very happy with the result.
Thanks for looking!
