Make it Monday #44- Glitter Masking

Now I love me the glitter and bling, so don't get me wrong here...this was a messy "process" and don't think I will be trying this new-to-me technique anytime soon :(

I really like a lot of the entries for MIM this week and thought I would try this... I wasn't happy with the results and kept tweaking the card, which was taking the glitter off.... ohhhh noooo!

Jennifer's version makes this look easy~unfortunately, not in my Craft Room :o) And to add insult to injury, I had to take the photo in poor lighting cause it is not pitch black outside.

Check out the video and the other crafter's posts this week:

My Card~ click on the image for more details - if you care to :^{
Cardstock: White base card by Georgia Pacific, Forest Green mat under the glitter mess from my stash
Stamps: tree is an old Martha Stewart , Sentiment "Blessings" from Fall Elegance by PTI
Die/Punch: The "skirt" under the tree is from Banner Borders by PTI; corner rounder from Ek Success
Glitter: Gold and Green from Studio G at Michael's; Pearls on the tree also from Michael's

No, not my best card, but had to give it a go anyway. Thanks for stopping by!
