Just wanted to share a project I eventually got round to trying out the other day, I'm calling it 'glitter-fill'...catchy eh?!
I love paper piecing with die-cuts, or 'filling', (the process of putting all the 'cut' bits back in to your die-cut, normally in a contrasting colour), so I wanted try a similar technique, but using glitter to do the 'filling'.
And here are the results...
I also got a chance to use my 'tattered angels - glam' (in 'tide pool'), which I got a while ago but was unsure how to use it. I thought it was a lovely complimentary colour to the glitter I used, so I dip-dyed some paper flowers to use as embellishments and add some more sparkle (never too much sparkle, right?).
The sentiment is from the 'mama elephant - up and away' set, which is just amazing and so versatile, stamped onto a little banner I made.
I finished the card with my 'glam' dyed paper flowers, some 'candi', and some leafy flourishes (cut out of the same main die - 'Spellbinders-botanical swirl'.
Here's another take on the same idea, using distress glitters in 3 different colours (spiced marmalade, peeled paint and mustard seed) to give a completely different look.
I love the results and have a load of ideas spinning around my head of what to do with all my other die-cuts, and other 'filling' possibilities. I'll be sure to share my results!
Well, as always, hope you like...please feel free to leave a comment letting me know what you think.
Thanks for looking :) xxx
