Feathered Bird

Today's card uses various products sold at Sparkle N Sprinkle, including Embossable Clear Acetate, Super Adhesive Sheets, Dreamweaver stencil, Want 2 Scrap chipboard, and of course glitter and flock.

The background was created by first applying a piece of a Super Adhesive Sheet onto the clear Embossable Acetate.  I then rubbed Hawaiian soap on the Cherry Blossom stencil so that it wouldn't permanently stick to the adhesive.  Pink Spirit Sparkle N Soft flock was used to cover the design.  After removing the stencil, I used a marker directly on the flock to change the color of the branches.  

Once this was completed, I added Waterfall semi transparent glitter to the rest of the adhesive.  Since this glitter is semi-transparent, it's color changed in intensity depending on what color of cardstock I had behind it.  This is why I used this technique on acetate - to see how the overall look changed based on what color cardstock I used for the mat.  The centers of the flowers are self adhesive bling from Want 2 Scrap.  In order to flatten them, I ran it through my die cutting machine.  This gives you more ways to use the dimensional gems.  You can really see the difference when you compare his eye to the centers of the flowers.  The same self adhesive gems were used for both.

The chipboard flourish bird is also by Want 2 Scrap and he was covered with Fleur de Lis embossing powder and heat set.  I added a pull ribbon bow by Mon Ami Gabby.  Sue Wilson Designs (Noble dies - Ornate Pierced Rectangles) complete the card and card base.

Hi, Anne! Those papers are gorgeous and so is your card! The die cuts look amazing, of course, but it is the "vast amounts" of sparkly textures which make it truly eye catching! Anne, you are so imaginative and innovative when it comes to the SNS products! Wow! Hope your week is extra happy! Hugs, de
