MIX40 Winter

This is my card for the MIX 40 Challenge at Splitcoast.

This week’s challenge is from new hostess (and my chicken guru) Anna Wight. She has challenged us to use something sticky to adhere glitter.

My card uses glitter glue in gold for the background and then I added white acrylic paint to my die cuts and ground. I added liquid glue and added Sprinkles! glitter (the best glitter ever!). After the glitter was dry I added a wee little bit of white acrylic paint on top of some of the glitter.

Die cuts from Impression Obsession, papers from The Paper Loft.

Let It Snow

This week’s challenge is “Favorite Technique

To enter the challenge go to the  Impression Obsession blog (all the details are there!). Enter to win a $25 gift certificate to IO just by playing!

My favorite technique is not quite clean and simple but not a bunch of layer’s either. I like an interesting background (stamped, patterned paper, splatters, embossed) and then an image or sentiment. Sometimes an embellishment of some type… but sometimes not.

My card uses the following IO products: C14164 Let It Snow. Die cut and embossing folder from Sizzix.

Go looky at what the IO girls did!
