Sparkle Wherever You Go

Leave a Little Sparkle Wherever You Go! Today I'm sharing an easy mixed media card that is filled with glitter and shimmer. The background of the card was inspired by a friend's water bottle that had these great waves of blues, geometric grids, and black doodles. I'm pretty happy with the outcome and the entire card came together in about 45 minutes (including drying time!)


The background was created by using a Gelatos Smoosh technique... you can see the entire process in my video. The Iridescent and Metallic Gelatos already have so much shimmer in the pigment, it really adds a lot of shine!



I'll be entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Sparkle and Shine) and the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (Let's Doodle).



Get all the How-To details by watching my process video. Enjoy!
