Putting on the Glitz!

Hi Everyone!  It's Danie here today sharing a quick card I made which came together easily and beautifully thanks to the coordinating range of Glitz Products and a few other items available from Altered Pages.

I used items from the Glitz Vintage Blue Collection which includes 6 x 6 Papers, Clear Stamps, and Trim.  It all coordinates so beautifully together.

Also from Altered Pages is the new Two Scoops Two Tone Textured Cardstock from Bazzill Basics, the Fabric Flowers and the Gold Niji Pearlescent WaterColor I used to color in my image with.  All of these items were part of a recent order I received and have been playing with.

The Espresso and Mustard Seed Ink along with the Gold Metallic Dew Drops and Cream Cardstock are the only other things I had to add from my other stash.

I have torn and sanded back the piece of dark brown Two Scoops Cardstock to reveal the lighter core color while using another piece which I haven't sanded for my card base.

The gorgeous bird image would be perfect for Spring Cards, whilst the colors of the Vintage Blue Papers have more of an autumn feel which is the season we are heading into now here in Australia.

Have a great week everyone!
Danie xx

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
