Glitz Glitter Gel Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 13 of us highlighting the “Quick Glitz” Technique as shown on page 35 in the Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book!  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  If you would like to start from the beginning, please visit this link to Debi's Blog.  While there you will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way.  Let’s get started!

If you are coming from Melissa's Blog, you are on the right track! 

 This month, I thought I would show the use of the Glitz Glitter Gel on chipboard shapes.  I first inked the snowflake with Crystal blue, then applied a thin layer of the silver Glitz over top and set it aside to dry.  I did the same thing with the heart using Chocolate ink and red Glitz.  I thought adding a bit of red to this card would really pop.  Who doesn't like a pop of red?!  I popped the heart up with some foam tape and stuck the pin clip through the foam tape.
 Here is a closer view of the glittered snowflake and heart.  I don't know if you noticed, but I stamped snowflakes lightly on the Grey Flannel cardstock.
