1. Gather you supplies
Heat tool, versamark ink pad, coloured ink pad, embossing buddy, heat & stick powder, dazziling diamonds, a powder pal and stamp. I am using Dasher (121592) $14.95.
2. Shadow stamping
To add a shadow to you stamped image first stamp in Sahara Sand ink, then using the stamp-a-ma-jig line up slightly off centre to leave a shadowed effect on one side. It is hard to see in my photos because of the glitter, but it dose give a nice 3D effect.
Rub across the cardstock to reduce static before embossing or applying glitter.
6. Adding Glitter
Cover with dazziling diamonds, straight away before the glue drys. Shake off the excess and heat again with the heat tool to set.
For a different effect you can use coloured glitters for this step, no need to add the coloured ink after the versamark though.
Now you have a sparkly reindeer. I adore this effect, especially on Christmas cards.
Sorry about the bad photo, it looks much nicer in person. Its very gloomy weather today.
This is my completed card. I have used some of our new Christmas papers, Jolly Holiday (117159) $16.95 on Early Espresso Card.
Thanks for visiting. I can't wait to see all your sparkly creations.
