"Happy Birthday Glitter Ritz"

Sunday, November 6, 2011

Todays card is done with a little different technique. The technique is called "Burnished Velvet".

First I'll show you the card;

"Happy Birthday"

The card it's self is self explanatory. Although the glitter does not show well in the picture, believe me it really glitters when you see it first hand.But, the stamping of the image of the flower is the technique called "Burnished Velvet". To stamp the image I used a "Glue Essentials" Glue pad. The pad looks like a standard ink pad, but with one difference. The glue pad need to have glue applied everytime you use it. It does not require a lot of glue, but needs to be applied each time you use it.

After you apply the glue to the pad, you are ready to stamp you image. Stamp the image on the paper. This is very important wait 15 minutes for the next step.

After the 15 minutes is up, we are going to do the "Burnished Velvet" technique. The product I used here is "Jewel Glitter Ritz" it is a Micro Fine Glitter. The glitter is different in that it has very little excess powder in it. You might as well say it's pure glitter, and it goes a long way.

Once the 15 minute is done, the glitter can be applied. Take a very small amount of glitter and apply it to the image in several places. With your finger and very light pressure rub the glitter into the image. Once the image is completely cover, tap the rest of the glitter off. Using a large makeup brush the rest of the glitter off the image.

The glitter comes in 60 different colors. So, you should be able to find a color to go with your project. This glitter and technique works on both ligh and dark color cardstock.

Give this technique a try, you'll love the effect.

If you have a question, please don't hesitate to ask.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!
