Today is Joanna Munster's birthday! She is the genius behind the Inspired By Stamping site which includes her store, blog, newsletter and more. The Design Team thought we'd wish her a big ol' happy birthday by having a blog hop showcasing some of her stamps, papers, and whatnot.
Today I chose to use one of my favorite razzle dazzle techniques of glittering through lace.
It's simply a matter of placing a piece of lace on sticky paper, coating it with one color (in this case a gorgeous purple), removing the lace and coating with a second color (teal). Talk about SPARKLY! I wish the photos could capture the glitter and glimmer and shimmer and shine but you'll have to try it for yourself to see what I mean. You need to use a very fine glitter, and Art Glitter makes the best glitter in the world, in my opinion.
The flower is an acetate one I made a while back which needed a home, and I centered it with a small pearl. The sentiment is from the IBS Vintage Sayings set and has been embossed with gold metallic powder.
The inside has been finished with a sentiment from the Happy Sentiment set.
Thanks for joining me and please drop by the other designers' blogs, then pop on over and wish Joanna a big happy birthday!
