CAS On Sunday - Glitter or Sequin Challenge With Unity Stamps
Hello everyone! Just wanted to pop in with a quick card I made yesterday for a few blog challenges. First is the CAS On Sunday Challenge Blog. I was so happy to be one of their top picks last week for Challenge #106 and had to play along again for this week's Challenge #107, which is is to use glitter or sequins on a card.
I'm also adding it to this week's challenge over on the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge Blog, which is Challenge #97 - Mother's Day.
And this week's challenge on the Cards In Envy Challenge Blog, which is a Motherly Love Card Challenge.
Now...my first thought when I saw the words glitter and sequins was to make a shaker card. But I figured that would everyone's first thought and I decided to go in a different direction. I decided to use glitter as an element in the image.
I started by making a top folding A2 card base out of white cardstock to which I adhered a piece of decorative cardstock. I cut another piece of white cardstock using the stitched rectangle from Bundle of Stitched Shapes (Simon Says Stamp). I stamped the flower image from Everything Joyful & Beautiful (Unity Stamp Co.) using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then I colored it in using Copic markers (Y08, FRY1, FRV1, RV11, and G05).
Next step was to add some glitter. I started with the top yellow/orange flower by applying dots of glue to the black dots around the flower with my Zig 2 Way fine tip glue. I then poured some Sunflower colored glitter (Recollections) over the glue. I waited a minute and then removed the excess.
I then went and did the same to the pink flower using Bubblegum colored glitter (Recollections).
When it was dry, I adhered this to the card front. I also adhered some pink sequins and the phrase "Happy Mother's Day". Done!
I love that I was able to use both glitter and sequins for the blog challenge! I hope you enjoyed this post and this CAS card. Let me know by leaving a comment below. Hope you guys have a great day and .... until next time -
