Inky Antics' Clearly Fun Blog Hop!
Welcome to the Inky Antics Clearly Fun Blog Hop! If you are arriving here from Crystal's blog, you are right on track! If not, be sure to start on Jovi's blog, so you don't miss a thing!
I used Inky's Clear Cardstock along with the Rose Oval clear set drawn by artist Vicki Schreiner to create my cards.
The blog hop starts today and ends on Sunday, April 22nd at midnight Central time. Please visit each DT members’ blog to view their projects and leave a comment for each designer. The more you comment, the better your chances are to win. (Limit one comment per blog, please). Two people’s names will be drawn at random to receive a surprise Inky prize pack. The winners’ names will be announced on the Inky Antics blog next Monday, so remember to stop back and see if you’ve won.
For the front of my card, I stamped the Rose Oval image with black Stazon ink onto the center of my card. Then, using Art Institute Glitters and glue on the backside of the image, I colored my image with glitters, starting with the darkest colors first and working towards my lightest colors. This is called the Glitter and Acetate Technique.
On the inside of my acetate card, I placed the Spellbinders Beaded Oval Die which I stamped with my sentiment, being careful to line it up with my cardfront image.
To hid the adhesive on the beaded oval die, I attached my designer papers to the back of the card.
I finished my card off with a satin ribbon tied in a bow.
For my second card, I changed up the glitter colors and the orientation of my card. On this one, I added my sentiment with Stazon ink to the front card panel as well, and finished it off with a pearl swirl.
Inside of the card, the oval image is lined with ivory cardstock, and there is another ivory oval on the music panel for your message. Again, to hide the adhesive, I added some brown cardstock behind the acetate of the back panel.
This is a fun way to share some glitzy glitter without the mess, since it is sandwiched between the acetate and the cardstock!
