Make It Monday #44 Glitter Masking

 Hi Folks!  Here's another get well card for my stash, this time prepared for the PTI Make It Monday challenge #44 (glitter masking).  Since just about the only glitter in my craft hoard is a set of Halloween colors (black, purple, orange, yellow, lime green) that I got on sale after the holiday, this was really going to be a challenge!  Here is what I came up with:

The mask for the sun image was die cut using the Bloom Builders #3 die.  After masking, the glitters for the sky portion were applied in a layering fashion.  Then the "sun" mask was peeled off and the yellow glitter was applied.  Finally a straight mask along the bottom was peeled off and the green glitter was applied.  The background (SU's So Saffron card stock) was stamped in Versamark ink using Fancy Flourishes, and the sentiment, from Healing Touch Sentiments, was stamped in black and clear-embossed on vellum.  Two lime green jewels were added.

That was fun!  I'll have to remember this technique and try it again sometime.

Have a nice day,



  1. BRILLIANT you clever girl to use the bloom builders as the sun Cyndie! Your colors look like a glorious sunset. Great job ;)
