Still covered in glitter . . .

Last week's Dreamweaver/Stampendous collaboration was so much fun I decided to continue playing with the glitter for this week's post.  For this month's challenge, May flowers and weddings, I  turned to one of my favorite floral stencils.




I began by dry-embossing the Hydrangea (LJ888) stencil and, with the stencil still in place, colored the image with pigment inks. Using my finger, I applied small amounts of Versamark Watermark ink to some of the petals and sprinkled them with Stampendous Vintage Lilac embossing tinsel.  The next steps are easy: heat from the back of the card to set the embossing tinsel;  tear the edges of the card stock to soften the image and ink with Ranger Antique Linen distress ink; and attach to coordinating background papers.





It's difficult to see the glitter on the larger image above, but the detail on the right, taken at an angle, gives you a better idea of the sparkle from the embossing tinsel.

There's still time to play along in this month's challenge, so be sure to link your project to the Dream it Up! blog using Mr. Linky.   And if you need more ideas and inspiration, check out the Dream Team blogs.  It's sure to get the creative juices flowing.

 
Happy Crafting,
