Glitter & Shine For C2CU

Friday … another week just whizzed by and I’m sitting here wondering where it went!!!

Today is week 3 of the Crafts-Too-Challenge You which has this months theme of texture.
Onto twist 2 of the theme and we would dearly love to see you add something shiny or glittery.

When I first saw the words shiny or glittery … picture the scene … me sitting in my chair in the craft room … hair standing on end just like a Mohican … face looked as if it had seen JACK THE RIPPER … frozen scream from my mouth … first thought, that awful glittery card which shed everywhere!!!

Phew panic over, the ole gray matter kicked in and calm soothing thoughts entered of Frantage, embossing powder, glimmer mists and other lovely goodies needless to say the hair and face went back to normal.

Close up first because I wanted you to see the Frantage button which is delicious, this is the mold I used just a tiny amount of Frantage needed then popped into the oven on a baking tray to set. You can see the other buttons made with it here. Be warned they are very delicate when made so treat with x x loving care x x

The yummy embossing folder is an A4 Crafts Too. Only used on half the card then obscured most of it with the image … why do we do that??? The knotted bow is made with a bandage … don’t even go there as to why the bandage was on my desk, I have no idea … just cut off a bit, tied in a knot then spritzed with glimmer mist … mmmmmm glimmer mists!!! Also spritzed the flowers … nothing escapes when I have the glimmer mists in my little puddies!!! Used a gold embossing powder for the stamped images, both are from Penny Black called Soft Sculptureand How To Fly. The stencil which also got the gold treatment is called Mini Bricks.

That’s it waffling over, now it’s your turn to have fun and enter those scrummy pieces plus hop on over to see what my other teemies have made. All gorgeous makes of art as usual.
