This month we are using the Double Glitter technique on our cards. We are using the fabulous Art Institute Glitter, check ourt their website to see all the wonderful colors they have.I was playing around this weekend and did this new Daisy Background (LX 7014) in Glossy White Paste on black card stock. While the paste was wet I sprinkled in some Goldfinch Metallic F/X, I liked it so much I decided I was going to use it for my background.
Now I had to decide what image I want to do in glitter. I decided to do the Dragonfly (LM193) because I thought you might just see a dragonfly in a field of daisies.
I started by cutting my Doubled Sided Mounting paper just a little bit larger then my stencil, I also cut a piece of card stock the same size. I removed one side of the Double Sided mounting paper coating paper and adhered the card stock to the sticky side. Next I soaped the back of the stencil, then with a lg. stencil brush i remove any soap that got onto the edges of the image. Now remove the other coating paper and place the stencil soap side down on the sticky surface. Press it down firmly so the colors you are using don't bleed under the stencil. I used the Brown Glitter #58 to do the body using a straw that I cut on the diagonal as a scoop to pick up the color and place it where I wanted that color. The upper wings were done in Melone #90, and the lower wings were done using Mustard #235. After the glitter was placed I used a large fluffy brush to get the remaining color of the stencil so it wouldn't get on the background. To remove the stencil you want to place your paper stencil side down on a hard surface and pull the paper up from the stencil, this will keep your stencil from being bent. When that was done I did the background with Crystal Glitter #85. This is a fun technique to do and I hope you will all try it and send in your creation so we can see what you've created.
Happy Stenciling and Glitter Dreams
