I thought I'd give you a tempting little morsel of glitter, because I promised you glitter and even though I haven't put these things to use on a pretty card yet - I have made them from scratch and need to share (aka show off).
Once again my good friend Trish has given me some insight.
We worked together and I wanted to make some acetate butterflies with some gorgeous napkins I came across. So away I went and used my PVA Glue with the acetate and some glitter and laid the napkins down and let them all dry, then backed it with plain white card. They worked fine, here's one I've cut out ready to put on a card. It's actually quite big - about 8cm square. There are smaller ones too in pink and yellow, but you'll just have to keep an eye on my cards to spot them as I haven't got any pictures of them yet.
Trish wanted to share a tag project she had which funnily enough was a similar process - only she was using glossy accents with the glitter and some ink (no napkin), Just a bit of tissue paper backing.
There is a cardboard backing on these tags (cut with a sizzix die in the Big Shot machine) that allows you to write on the back of them.
We got such glued up, glittery inky fingers doing this, as you kinda mush the ink and glitter into the glue. Great fun!
inspire me Fridays – anything goes -
My conclusion is that PVA Glue works too, but Glossy Accents does it better.
