I know Studio L3 has a challenge going on using Distress Glitter, one of my favorite products! So, I thought I would create a project today to support the challenge. Hoping that if you like what you see here, you might be inspired to make something yourself using Distress Glitter (and even enter the challenge!).
Follow along and I will show you what I created...
I might mention a few facts about Distress Glitter:
1. Distress Glitter mimics the look of glass glitter or mica, so resist the urge to press it down into the glue...it should be a bit uneven so the light can catch the layers of glitter.
2. It is heat stable, meaning you can dry it with your heat tool and it will not melt.
3. Distress Glitter is totally inkable, so once dry, you can ink the edges just like cardstock.
Seriously cool stuff.
NOTE: this is the part where I should have showed the trophy with Distress Ink on the edges. Please note this step in the final photos.
I quickly dried it with the heat it tool...
Just a tip here - since the words on the Remnant Rubs sheet are in a straight line, I cut the words apart. I added "with", and then "heart" on the other end. Then I went back and filled in with "all my" to get the spacing right.
I added a bit of French lace with a hot glue gun (I was impatient), then just started adding flowers one at a time.
Compendium of Curiosities Challenge
Have you heard about the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge over at Studio L3? Linda is working her way through Tim's new book, A Compendium of Curiosities III and challenging everyone to follow along. A new challenge is posted every 2 weeks and of course someone is going to win a prize at the end of each challenge. If you are interested in participating, you can read all about it here.
now carry on,
