Magical Friends | Colouring Glitter & Creating Backgrounds with Perfect Pearls

Hi Everyone!

Have you tried the glitter challenge over at Make It Crafty yet? You still have a little less than a day to enter. You don’t have to colour a huge image like me but can just add it to a small part of an image, like a top or a skirt. But weather you enter the challenge or not, try it out it’s a lot of fun!

Todays card and videos (there is two) is all about those glittered effects, and gosh did I challenge myself with this one. I’ve tried colouring this image multiple times, never feeling that I make it justice, and then I added the challenge of glitter on top of that. It was super scary but also super satisfying! The glitter effect on the dress is created with metallic, glitter and white gel pens, you can see all how I coloured it below if you want to see it in HD you can do that HERE.

For the card I had a few things that I wanted, one was to use the layered words chipboards , another one was to give it a vintage feeling and the last one was to use Perfect Pearls. I went through my stash of stencils and found the Argyle one, it’s super easy to line up to fill up a wider surface and it got the feeling I wanted. I went trough my Perfect Pearls (they arn’t that many but I’ll be adding more to my collection soon), and saw the Heirloom Gold and just saw how perfect it would be! You can see the full process below or watch it in HD HERE.

I blended Versamark in over the stencil onto some Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy Cardstock and the brushed the Perfect Pearls over it. I den used a Mini Mister to mist water over the cardstock to set the Perfect Pearls. I finished of the background part by blending some Chipped Sapphire on the edges on the navy cardstock.

For the sentiment I used the Magical Layered Word, I coloured the bottom part with some white gesso and used the Perfect Pearls on the top part. To finish the sentiment I heat embossed the word Friends from the Create A Smile Stamps set called Friends Like You, with some Hero Arts Fine White Embossing Powder. To finish the card I added some Tinklings, half of them was coloured with the Perfect Pearls and the other half was coated with Nuvo Gloss Simply White.

I also want to thank you all for being with me through the years and wish you a happy new year, I will be back in the new year with loads of fun creations.
