a little frosting...

Hi everyone! I have a quick, easy, and fun technique for you to try as we explore different types of ways to bring color into your projects. One of my most favorite products is glitter---as much as I love it, it does tend to find it's way throughout my house. Thankfully though I discovered Stickles glitter by Ranger Industries and it is perfect for covering small areas. There are so many colors available and I love the way they transform elements with their beautiful shimmer of color.
All I did for this card was to cover the felt accent in a coordinating color of Stickles glitter. After I had applied the glitter, I spread it around with my finger to coat the whole surface. It takes a while to dry, but I really love how it adds that little touch of shimmer and frosts any project just perfectly.
Supplies:
Ranger Stickles glitter and ink
Fancy Pants paper and felt accent
Basic Grey paper
American Crafts rubons
Making Memories alpha stickers
Heidi Grace ribbon
K&Co. fabric brad
EK Success corner rounder

Hope you'll give it a try.


Have a wonderful day!


Melissa
