Just perfect for Christmas and the holidays, makes great frosting or for giving an extra sparkle to a project, like this:
The above photo is a little teaser of the beautiful frosting you can put on winter flowers.
I created a winter card, 'Cast A Spell' because of the spell snow casts across the land when it falls - it's like magic!
Using a gel medium through a stencil and then adding the glitter on top is a great way to add texture in a pattern. Do wait for it to dry thoroughly before going any further, but if you want to knock back some sparkle adding a few sprays of Picket Fence Distress Spray adds a lovely snowy effect and further interest to the texture.
Adding the glitter to a die cut or a stamp (in this case I chose a die cut, but you can easily do the same to a fussy cut stamped image) is another way to make your glitter go further. Glossy Accents, or a very good strong glue, is the key here. I do this in stages as Glossy Accents can dry quite quickly, so it's worth doing half at a time otherwise it will look very fragmented.
This one may be a little hard to see, but if you 'dollop' some glue on fine threads and other random places, then sprinkle some glitter over the top it catches and stays in this little ball of glitter deliciousness!!
Here is some more 'frosting' added to the flower, mini pine cones and burlap flowers. Also pictured are some Kaisercraft pearls.
Linda also has in her shop some amazing metal embellishments for Christmas. I used some of the jingle bells for this wintery card.
Hope you enjoyed my focus and have a wonderful, sparkly day!
