Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Make it Sparkle

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project that's sparkly!

I tried my best to capture the sparkle in this card, but it's one you have to see to really appreciate, I think! I followed a variation of a tutorial I created for Splitcoast called Colored Glitter Inlay I layered a sheet of double-sided tape over a piece of matboard, then cut the Snowflake Block die into the surface. The matboard is too thick to cut through, but the die cuts into the liner of the tape so it can be removed in stages.

I removed the frame and snowflake from the liner, and rubbed crystal micro glitter over the adhesive that was exposed. After that I removed the rest of the liner pieces, and rubbed in a turquoise micro glitter everywhere that was still sticky.

Products I used: Snowflake Block die, Snow Flourish clear set, Teal hybrid ink

Remember you can enter these challenges too, using your Impression Obsession stamps! See the I.O. blog for all the details - you might even win a $25 gift certificate!! We'd love to have you join us.
Thanks for stopping by!
