Glitter and Lace

Using tulle and glitter to make your background can be so fun - especially if, like me, you are addicted to glitter! It's always fun if you play with glitter colors and different tulle designs to achieve different results. Today I am sharing how I created an easy, lace background using glitter - along with a great owl from the Whimsical Owl Trio from today's sponsor at Get Creative Challenges - SLS Lines.
Here is a step-by-step for you:
  • Run a piece of cardstock through a Xyron machine or cover with two-sided adhesive.
  • Carefully cover with a piece of tulle. Using a brayer, be sure there are no wrinkles in the material to assure best coverage. 
  • Cover generously with glitter. Burnish the glitter by rubbing it into the cardstock with your finger. Remove the lace (it can be used for other projects).
  • Cover generously with the second color of glitter. Burnish the glitter by rubbing it into the cardstock with your finger. 
Maybe next time you play with glitter, you can try this technique with some fun lace.  Play - you will get many different results. 

The owl was colored with Photoshop. The spider web is Spiderweb Doily by My Scrap Chick. The sentiment is left over from a Halloween paper stack purchased years ago.
