TLC423 ~ Stamp It, Mask It, Sponge It, and Glitter It Up!! ~ (04/01/13)
 
Hello everyone!! It's my turn to host this weeks TLC and my challenge is to Stamp it, Mask it, Sponge it, and Glitter it up!!!! That's right...we are going to do three techniques in one!!! I just love the look of a sparkly stamped image without any coloring that is surrounded by sponging!! Oh, BTW....this is not an April Fools Day joke...LOL!!!


Here are the deets:


1. Stamp an image with lots of clear space on light colored card stock.
2. Mask the image and sponge a darker background color all around the image.
3. Remove the masking and glitter up all or part of the image....no coloring allowed!!!
4. BTW...if you use Stickles for the sparkle you will be adding a little color.

Edit....I'm sorry if this sounds like you can't use Stickles....by all means use them if you want...they count for sparkle!!!

My sample


Butterfly Sparkle

Great challenge Joan, I'm off to stamp, mask and glitter!

Here's my polar pair on my card. Thanks Joan, this was fun!

What?? No stickles?? :shock: Not sure I can handle that, or if I even have regular glitter for that matter. Hmmm, will have to look around.

susanbri 03-31-2013 08:48 PM

Am I correct in assuming that you want us to use clear glitter? I have lots of coloured glitters as well as clear.

If you use clear glitter, you can see the white or light background. Colored glitter is ok if it is light and you get contrast with the light image and darker background.

By all means...use Stickles as long as they are lighter than the background.

LOL at not an April Fool's joke :D.
Off to play as soon as I get the bread in the oven and can leave the kitchen!

You got my mind wheels turning this morning, Joan. : ) I'm not a big glitter user and prefer Stickles or glitter glue so I know those pesky little sparkles are held in check. It was fun working this out. Thanks!

THanks for the fun challenge, Joan! The hardest part was waiting for the stickles to dry, lol. Finally got out my hair dryer! Here's my Glittery Dogwoods . Thanks so much for looking!

Fun Challenge Joan!!!! Changed mine up by stamping on kraft and using Pan pastels rather than inking.......

I don't do well with masking, so this was a good challenge for me to keep trying. Here's my card.

Here's my glittery bird

I almost skipped this challenge because it was a "challenge" for me. Haha. Isn't that the point?

susanbri 04-06-2013 02:17 PM

Joan, I love this technique!! Thanks so much for posting it. I'm sure I'll be using it often. I couldn't stop with just one card, so made two (and have an idea for a third!):

Glittered Dove
Glittered White Bird

Interesting challenge - not really done any challenges - but gonna have a go at this :)

susie nelson 04-08-2013 08:19 PM

Thanks, Joan, for this challenge. Glitter is not something I use often.

Sympathy for Marie is my card.

I know we were not to "color" the card but really I was just adding glitter
with my martha stewart glitter pens.

One night a few years ago when I came to bed glowing in the dark and glittered adorned our bedsheets, carpet, and everywhere we looked, my dh put the kabosh on glitter. He's ok with the glitter pens. LOL.

So this is the only way I could do this challenge.

I do feel just awful for Marie. One does not expect to have to attend their son's funeral. It's very sad. Fortunately she is a strong lady.
