Hello there, lovelies! It´s been quite a while (over a year, to be precise) since my last step-by-step video. Time to change that right now! I took the time and recorded something I had promised to do back in February – a video in German about how to create beautiful glitter backgrounds with Silk Microfine Glitter.
And while I was at it, I did the video also in English…
….and in Finnish.
Since it has been such a long time since my last video, I felt like I was doing it for the first time, so if the result is not perfect, please keep in mind that it has been a while… you tend to get out of practise after a while.
In the video you only see two cards, I actually ended up creating 4 in the end. For the third and fourth card I used the same yellow & teal glitter combination as on my lace backgound cards on the video, except I used the colors in opposite order. Here is what I did: I added first the teal onto the background, then polished it and then added the yellow glitter. After that I die cut some flowers from the glitter paper with the Big Flower Set 1 and used them on my 3rd and 4th card.
And finally I´d like to show you some step-by-step photos on how I did the honeycomb background using the die cut protective sheet of the adhesive as a stencil:
I had some Honeycomb die cut die protective sheet pieces of the Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet which I adhered onto the adhesive surface of the white cardstock. Next I applied a layer of Chocolate Silk Microfine Glitter over the surface (as shown in the video, remove residue with the brush onto the coffee filter and pour back into the jar). Before removing the protective sheet die cut pieces I polished the glitter with my finger. Next I poured the Spring Peridot Silk Microfine Glitter over the white areas and polished the glitter. This is what the Honeycomb glitter background looks like. I then cut it into similar sized strips with a paper cutter and as shown on the video, used one of those strips for a card. Here are photos of the finished cards:
Those die cut flowers are cut from leftover paper pieces and added to the open spaces. The background is made like on the first card, except the colors were added in opposite order. Here I´ve used the die cut flowers from the above card do create a layered flower. I hope you get inspired to try the Silk Microfine Glitter out yourself! It is really super fine and because of that, you can do very detailed work with it!
