2 Sketches 4 You - Laura #7

Here my take on this week's sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I deviated a bit! I got together with my two sisters and my two friends (who are also sisters) at Archiver's last night. I started on this one at the crop and then finished up with the glitter at home today. Bringing glitter to a pretty packed table at a crop...not a good idea!!!

I used some Doodlebug glitter/embossed paper and a Heidi Swapp chipboard flower that both fell into my basket last night. I also used a Hambly transparency, Paper Studio bling, Archiver's cardstock and Doodlebug glitter and rubons. To apply the glitter I used Modge Podge and then added a second layer of glitter on top of the first using more Modge Podge since I wanted a little more color. Tip: my favorite way to get the glitter back into the tiny little Doodlebug bottle is to use one of those cheapy paper plates from Walmart - you know the kind where you need 5 just to have it support a hamurger! I then fold the plate to get it to funnel back in. I also hid the glue dots for the transparency behind the flower and in the corner behind the swirl. Card size is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. This card is brighter in person.
Don't forget I'm drawing on Monday for my RAK!
