I had a specific design plan in mind when I began with this project, but it promptly croaked. The original color scheme looked like a mistake instead of a plan, so – on to Plan #2. This involved changing the colors to darker ones . . .
First, I laid down the Mosaic Heart stencil over the original colors, applied the stencil paste and then added the glitter. When dry, I dusted off the excess and then sponged on some Chocolate Brown Gelatos. I was delighted to find that the gleam and glitter still shone through. Some of the original rusty color also shows which gives the glittery heart some warmth – a good thing, as this card is for an anniversary.
Currently, I'm in the throes of an all-out glitter phase; bear with me while it runs its course. Meanwhile, I'm having fun reflecting a whole lotta light . . .
