Lots More Sparkles!





Good day! Here is a project I have been waiting to post for quite awhile, as some of you know photographing glitter can be challenging sometimes and especially with this much white. I finally got it and the trick is I think using a black bg instead of white, I finally got a picture I was embarrassed to post! :) Yay! I used the glitter over the image technique (?), whatever it's called I don't think about using it enough because it's really always so pretty in person. The image I used is called Vertie Christmas Angel. One thing to remember is the glitter does wash out your image and colors so you should make them extra dark with more contrast than if you were doing the image without the glittery overlay. I love this triangle box template, I've been wanting to use it for a while, I never seem to gert around to trying boxes and they are so fun. This one came in a set I purchased from Oriental Trading a couple of years ago. Also if you look really close (you could enlarge the image too!) you will notice the gorgeous texture and shimmer of the paper I used, it is from the Paper Temptress and it is so very elegant. It is called VINTAGE SILVER LUSTRE. I would imagine it would be awesome for wedding cards especially! I also wanted to remind you guys that you still have until the end of the month to upload your own sparkly creation to the SHC4 challenge!
