Twisted Sketches Card # 87

Wow!  Time really flies!  Here it is almost the end of November and this is my first November post!  Last week I participated in a class at Stamper's Corner. The instructor was Els from Elizabeth's Craft Designs.  All I can say is OH MY!  I took 2 classes and created 2 cards in each class (I will post those later.)

The reason I mentioned the classes here is because I used the technique and products from one of the classes and created a card for this week's Twisted Sketches Card #87.  The twist this week is Glitter!!! (You can click the link to see the sketch.)

The background started as plain white card stock to which I added some "Be Creative" Tape, then the fun began!  I masked the exposed tape with snowflakes then covered with Glitter Ritz Deep Purple Opaque Micro Fine Glitter.   After completely covering, I removed the excess glitter and returned it to the jar.  I burnished what remained on the tape with my finger.  This glitter is amazing, it is soft to the touch almost like velvet!  After burnishing well, I carefully removed the masks and added Glitter Ritz Cool Highlights glitter following the steps I mentioned earlier.

The picture really does not do justice to the "glittery-ness" of the card, I wish you could see it in person!

Have you ever wanted to be on a design team?  Do you like working from sketches?  Then you need to check out the Design Team Call Twisted Sketches has going on right now.  You gotta hurry though, the last day to submit is December 1, 2011.

Hope you have a great week!
