Welcome Back Friends,
DT Melanie here with you today to share the beautiful Serena Mermaid Stamp Set that we carry. As soon as I saw this stamp I knew I just had to color her.
Now lets show you how I created this glittery background...it actually is pretty simple and gives your project a "WOW" factor.
Step 1: Place your first piece of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape at a diagonal in the center of your card front. This will give your a starting point.
Step 2: Turn your paper so that your first piece of tape runs along a straight line (I have used my self healing mat for my straight line.) Then begin placing extra strips of 1/4" Tear-ific tape until you have the entire piece of card stock covered.
Below it shows you the entire card covered in tape.
Step 3: Using a piercing tool carefully lift the card w/ tape, off the surface it is stuck to.
Carefully lift until it all releases from your mat.
Step 4: Turn your piece over and carefully trim the excess tape using your Tim Holtz scissors.
Step 5: Now the fun begins.... Remove the release paper from every other piece of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape and burnish in the first color of glitter. Do this over a coffee filter so all the excess can easily be funneled back into your jar.
Step 6: Remove the rest of the release paper and do the same thing with the darker color of glitter. The result is truly magical!
