Hi! This card was made for today's Technique Lovers Challenge: Sparkly Stained Glass, and the Stampin' B's Challenge to use a die cut, circle and a flower on a card.
First, WOW! I can't believe how much glitter is on my stampin' table, my HAIR, arms and clothes...and well...ALL OVER MY OFFICE! A word to the wise...TURN OFF THE CEILING FAN BEFORE you start this project!!!
I didn't have all the supplies needed to follow the directions for this technique, BUT, I did get it to work and got the SAME results!
I stamped the OPEN hummingbird image in Palette Hybrid Ink onto the CLEAR stamp set liner that I had sitting on my desk! I turned the clear sheet over. Next, I used a 2 way glue pen and glued small areas to add EACH color of glitter. (Each area was glued and a color was added .) I cut out the image and used a glue dot to add it to the focal panel.
Finished size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Total time to complete...over an hour...I had to take a shower to get the glitter off my skin...I started to itch so much that I kinda freaked out!

Ooooh, what a beautiful hummingbird on your pretty card. I am much less intimidated by this technique after seeing what you did with a small image. I make sure my fans are off, but I still end up with glitter everywhere too!
