Glittery celebration....!!

Hey everyone....

I've recently been inspired by a fantastic technique that Jennifer McGuire has been using with stencils and glitter so I had to try it out for my "Miss Ink stamps" inspiration this week!!

To do this technique all you need to do is have a piece of cardstock with double sided adhesive over the whole piece for your base. You then place whichever stencil you want to use over the adhesive, I used the "Leafy green" stencil for mine...

Once your stencil is stuck down cover over it with a glitter of choice...

I used WOW! sparkles Frisky for my first colour!!

Tip all the excess glitter back into the pot and then remove the stencil....

Choose another glitter, I used WOW! Bridal and cover over all the rest of the open adhesive area....

You then have a super sparkly and pretty background for any card!!

I coloured up the "Have heart" image from the latest release with Altenew brush markers in the colours WG01, WG03, WG05 and added it to the card base with some foam for a bit of dimension. 

Using the "Streamers" co-ordinating die I added the celebrate sentiment and finished it off with a small embossed let's sentiment on black cardstock with opaque bright white WOW! embossing powder!!

A touch of sequins and the card was finished..

I hope you like it, I am absolutely loving this technique Jennifer shared and I am definitely going to be using it on many more cards in the future!! 
(I may already have more coming with this technique hehe)
