The photo above is my card on the left and its background on the right. Today's Mixed challenge is to add glitter. Wish I could capture the sparkle on the card. But since I had to tilt the background and change the lighting I added the separate background photo above.
This card is so much fun to create! I colored the background with watercolor paints, embossed with textured fades, added some DTP white ink highlights and brayered with stickles.
For the sentiment chalkboard I stamped the image with Memories white metallic ink which took almost 30 minutes to dry. The white smudges were done with Color Box Frost White pigment ink. Rubbed hard with a tissue to achieve the chalk dust look. Embellished with sparkle blue felt, felt rick rack and snowflake.
I love the thin layer of sparkle that brayering stickles creates. And it cleans up with soap and water without leaving glitter behind in every nook and cranny.
