Glitter Challenge

Week three of our Dreamweaver Stencils and Art Glitter combined June challenge brings more great ideas of how to combine these wonderful products. Our challenge is to create wedding themed cards using the Double-Glitter Technique. Here's my version of a "Summer Wedding" card:


The stencil is Dreamweaver's Long stem rose (LL375)  and the glitters are Ultra Fine Pink Smoothie and Microfine Rock Moss with Crystal in the background. Because the colors are transparent they are very subtle, so after glittering I laid the stencil back over the glitter and used a small stencil brush to add some Brilliance Pearlescent Coral to the rose just to bring it out a little more. A small black soot mat makes the glitter layer really stand out, and the pink layer ties everything to the beautiful Graphic 45 background paper. Of course, a nice bow always adds a wonderful finishing touch. I thinks this would make the perfect card for a summer wedding (especially if it is a garden wedding).
 
Visit the Art Glitter blog and the Dream It Up! blog for fabulous inspiration from both talented design teams. We are encouraging all of you to play along with the challenge of creating with Dreamweaver Stencils and Art Glitter*, preferably using the Double-Glitter Technique with a wedding theme. Just link your creation to the Mr. Linky on the Dream It Up! blog, or email pics to lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com, for an opportunity to win one of four fabulous glitter and stencil prize packages. One winner will be chosen each week. (US and Canada only, please).

What a delicate, beautiful card, Louise. This would be perfect for my granddaughters... one's favorite color is pink and the other is green and they are both delicate beauties!
