Glittery Dots

This is my latest card for Rogue Redhead Designs.  The circle background, sentiment and couple are all from the RRD Snow Hugs stamp plate.

I was anxious to go dotty and glittery with this background.  I used a double heat embossing technique.  First I stamped the background with Versamark embossing ink, sprinkled on Stampin' Up Heat 'n Stick Powder, and used the heat gun.  Then I sprinkled glitter on the sticky surface and blasted with the heat gun a second time.  I love the effect of the glitter on these circles. 

I thought Ranger's Broken China distress ink matched the glitter the best.  On the image I also added crystal glitter and Copic sketch marker BG72 ice ocean. I happened to have matching metallic ribbon and a metallic brad in my stash.

Would you like to create something dotty? You have until November 4 to enter the Rebel Challenge GO DOTTY at Rogue Redhead Designs. Up for grabs is a US$15 voucher to the RRD store. See the details at the RRD blog HERE

Normally I don't head towards art that is glittery or dotty but this really has drawn me in. Perhaps it's the color scheme, perhaps it's the image...don't know but I do know that it speaks to me. Very nicely done, my friend!

The use of glitter is a fabulous idea.
There is such a sense of movement to your lovely card.
