Putting on the Glitz!

My mojo finally crept out of hiding this morning and I managed to make this card. It is a project on one of my Debbi Moore CD's (Glitter & Glitz, Magic Moments). I'm very happy with it but only problem is it does use up rather a lot of expensive printer ink! However, for a special birthday, I'm willing to accept that!

Unfinished card

I finally managed some play time yesterday after having been laid low with a virus so I decided to try out this technique that I had seen demoed in Glasgow. I already had the Dreamweaver tree stencil so felt I was halfway there. First you put soap on the stencil to prevent it sticking too well to the double sided adhesive sheet you place it on. Then you sprinkle on some gilding flakes (which fly everywhere!). Take off the stencil and sprinkle black glitter over the "trees" which are left sticky (the glitter gets everywhere too!)then cut it out and stick it to card. Might try it next time on a smaller stencil as it uses up quite a lot of flakes. Nice effect though!
