For the love of glitter....



Blue-and-green-tag

I love the look of glitter. Just not the mess big chunky glitter leaves behind. So I'm always on the lookout for ways to incorporate the look of glitter without the inevitable craftermath! *LOL*


I coloured the top of the tag with Derwent Inktense block in green, then applied a layer of Golden glass bead gel. When that dried, I coloured with the same green again diluting with water to get some variations in the green tone. Then I applied some Tattered Angels glitter glam for a sparkly finish.


Added some ribbon, handmade bloom [thanks Lizzy!] and some metal hardware. :)

Faaantastic take on that inspiration! I don't mind glitter. I keep mine in salt cellars and shake it over an A4 paper with a creaseline in the middle then pour it back in. Never had a mess...
