Last month I hosted the Splitcoaststampers Technique Challenge with a technique called Negative Glitter (dubbed by me!).
Instructions for following my sample:
1. Choose your glitter colors. I chose four different pastels, but you
could use different shades of the same color, or bolder contrasts.
Adhere strips of Scor-Tape (or another brand) where you want the
glitter. Press down tightly using your fingers or a bone folder. Remove
the backing of one strip at a time, adding one color at a time. Press
the glitter into the strip of adhesive, making sure it is covered.
Continue until all strips are covered with glitter.
2. Cut your panel for the negative die slightly smaller than the card
base. Position your die to show off the most color. Cut and adhere the
panel using pop up squares (Dimensionals or another brand).
3. Embellish the rest of the card as you wish.
I kept mine CAS and added sequins using Glue Dots.
There are many ideas using this multi-glitter technique. Your die
doesn't have to be a word - it could be some beautiful shape as well.
The glitter doesn't have to be in strips either. Feel free to
incorporate stamping on your panels too!
I adhered my glitter with individual strips of Scor-Tape. I cut my word
and used the negative side of the die for the front panel, adding
sequins for embellishments. I adhered the "inside" of each letter with
Brushable Glue (Crystal Effects and the like would also work to adhere
to the glitter well). Easy!
