Glimmer Fun

Today I was playing around with my glimmer mists after being inspired by watching this youtube video by pepsigirl4ever. Here is my take on her project using glimmer mist instead:

The glimmer mist colors that I used were: Tiger Lily, Cinder, Gold, Coffee Shop. The base is corrugated cardboard (a flap cut out of a cardboard box). I did a lot of embossed stamped images, all the flourishes, polka dots and the diamond pattern. White acrylic paint was used in the background and embossed with ultra thick embossing enamel. Besides owls, I love dragonflys as well. The dragonfly is a glimmer chip from Tattered Angels. It was sprayed with Tiger Lily and Coffee Shop, then distressed with Black Soot. The flowers are Prima and sprayed with glimmer mists. On the same youtube video you learn how to make the handmade flower, love it! The photo was distressed with Tea Dye around the edges. Add some rhinestones, pom-poms and call it done. This project was a lot of fun. I wish you could see it in person, I love how the light reflects against it with all the glimmer mists. This last photo was taken with the sun hitting it, hopefully it can capture some of the "wow" factor, lol. Enjoy!
