Poppies

Hi Everyone,
Boy what a wonderful day it is here in my area. Really warm and sunny. Pretty soon we will be cutting the grass.I am hoping cold weather is a thing of the past for this year.

Last nite was the monthly club meeting and I gave the tutorial. This tutorial was part 2 of working with microfine glitter. Last month, part one revolved around stamping on microfine glitter and then coloring it with markers, alcohol markers and using watercolors. They all seemed to really like that tutorial. This month, part 2, centered on using outline stickers and how to use different colored glitters to "color" in the various ares of the outline sticker. The outline sticker I chose to use has poppies on it. We just used 3 colors and the ladies had a great time learning this phase of using microfine glitter.

I made a boo boo on mine. Imagine that, the instructor makes a mistake. LOL. I noticed it after everyone had left. So, to minimize the appearance of the error, I used silver microfine glitter for the background, instead of leaving the dull silver on the background of the outline sticker.

I love this outline sticker, it is one of my favorites!!! Thought you'd like to see my completed.card.


I used a corner swirl from Heartfelt Creations to cut out the silver cs. I also embossed the black cs just to add a little interest to this card.

All of the glitter I used is from Sparkle N Sprinkle. Their glitter is known as Velvet Glitter and let me tell you, it is a wonderful microfine glitter, and it does feel like velvet. Their Velvet Glitter comes in 17 great colors. I used:

**Black Suede **Gypsy Red **Luau Green **Sonic Silver**

Check them out here

I am working on a  post and it has a lot of pics to show you how I made a tree. You will have to stop back to see this one.

I will have the post ready for your viewing pleasure on Friday. Please try to stop back then. See you soon.
