New month, new Glimmer kit from Spellbinders!
This month’s kit has some gorgeous florals as well as a hexagon frame that you can die cut. Love florals with geometric patterns, dont you?
Glimmered and Colored
I started my cards by glimmering the florals onto the background. I used both black and gold foil, just to show the difference in look that can be achieved.
Once my florals were glimmered, I used some Mermaid Markers to color them in. The Mermaid Markers are watercolor markers from Jane Davenport. You can add them to paper and then spread the watercolor with a water brush. I would highly recommend Bristol Smooth paper or watercolor paper when working with these brushes. I used Bristol since it is a smooth paper that is easily glimmered on.
Add the Sentiment!
I kept these cards super simple, so most of the work went into the coloring. After that was finished, I glimmered teh hexagons and cut them out with the coordinating die. I then glimmered the sentiment, “have a nice day”, that came with the kit.
The hexagons were then added to the card front with foam adhesive to give some dimension. To finish the cards, I added some clear sequins for extra sparkle. Never too much sparkle!
