A few of you have emailed me asking for more info about the card below, which I posted last week:
Sorry I didn't explain how I made it, but I was getting frustrated because I was posting from my iPad. The GORGEOUS die is the Leaf Pattern Cover-Up die from Lil' Inker - and of course I had to mail this card to Miss Lil' Inker herself, Laura Pryor.
I used a sheet of double sided adhesive (from Clear and Simple Stamps), sticky side up, and carefully placed the die cut on top. I trimmed it around the edges, then sprinkled on some glitter. I tried to do a gradient of color by adding the glitter in stages. I used it sparingly, because the excess would not be able to go back into the tubes since the colors mixed. No need to waste a bunch here!
One more thing before I go...a new year calls for a new signature (and yes, I know it's huge. I like it!). Susan Opel gave me the nickname of "JRza" a while back, and quite a few of you call me that! I love it, so it has become my new signature. I'm also considering changing my header....
Do you know I *squealed* at that new signature?! It's like a graffiti artist's tag, which I'm sure you're well aware of!! So awesome!!ReplyDelete
