I love glitter. If you know me this is not a surprise. which is why Glimmer Paste is my favorite.
SO. MUCH. GLITTER.
and it doesn’t come off on your hands, or get allover your pants, carpet, pretty much everything you own.
I also love color. Bright colors. color gradients, a pop of color or color all over. I just love it.
You know what’s better than just glitter, or just color? BOTH together!
- Start off by applying Distress Oxide Ink in a color gradient on one side of your card panel.
- You can use any ink you already love for ink blending.
- Any colors that blend well together will work. I used three but you can use as few or as many as you’d like.
- Lighten your pressure while blending your ink towards the center of the panel to get a smooth transition to white.
- Once your ink blending is done lay your stencil on top of your card panel.
- Depending on the type of stencil you’re using you may need to secure the edges with some tape.
- Use a spatula or palette knife to spread the Glimmer Paste in a smooth even layer across the top.
- Let the Glimmer Paste drop off naturally over the transition area.
- Wash your palette knife and stencil immediately. It dries fast! Set your panel aside to dry.
- Stamp and mask your images to create your focal point.
- I stamped Sammy the Sloth first, masked the image then stamped the flowers, masked them and then the leaves.
- Color your images with Nuvo Markers.
- Outline the images with a Black Brush Script Pen.
- Fussy cut image out.
- Die cut your sentiment out of black and white cardstock.
- Heat emboss the second part of the sentiment on black cardstock using white embossing powder.
- Adhere Sentiment and focal points with foam adhesive.
Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope you’ll give this glitter gradient a try soon!
