Glitter and shine...
Firstly I would like to say a big Thank You to everyone who wished me a happy holiday and birthday, it really does mean so much! We had a fabulous Holiday really relaxing and I have come back with lots of new ideas and ranges for next year a few weeks of drawing ahead for me I think!
Today's card uses a few different tecahniques that I love using to give maximum effects with minimum effort.
I stared by cutting a circular aperture in a square of silver scraper foil. I then embossed the piece using my Snowflake circle embossing folder. I then sanded back the pattern using a sanding block which revels the silver behind the black ink ( sorry I seem to have used this technique loads recently but it really is easy and effective)
The border of the card is really easy to make I simply added double sided tape around a layer of black card and added silver distress glitter over this. because of the different sized particles in the distress glitter the black shows through adding another level of depth to what is a relatively flat card.
I added a few mats and layers of black and silver before adding to a 8x8" card blank and finished.
