Today, we're combining the One-Layer Wednesday and LITTLE THINGS week. First of all, let's do the LITTLE THINGS: glue pen and glitter!
Yes, I know we did Stickles, so tidy and straightforward, on Sunday, but today, I want to talk about glue pens. LOVE THEM! They are so easy to use to put just a little glue wherever you want it...and adding fine glitter is just perfectly lovely.
The sugar-coated sparkle is delightful! (Click on the photo to see it bigger.) I colored the image with PrismaColor pencils first, then added the glue to the eggs and drew glue lines on the daffodil. A light sprinkle of fine white glitter gives this instant sparkle that works beautifully with the shimmer of the sheer yellow ribbon.
Oh happy sigh!
This image comes from Shady Tree Studio's set Eastertide, which Nancy (the owner of Shady Tree Studio) sent me as a gift. This is just the first of many cards I'll make with this lovely set!
The give-away for today will be one jar of Hero Arts fine glitter and a Quickie Glue Pen. Only one winner today. So make sure you leave your comment answering today's question on the blog post...email replies will not count for the drawing!
Glitter and Glue Pen Give-Away Question
What LITTLE THING could you not clean your house without?
The One-Layer Wednesday challenge is to use an egg or eggs on your one-layer card. How easy is this! If you're not the Easter basket type, use eggs in a nest...or an egg in a cup, an egg and a chicken, an egg-head cartoon, a good egg, whatever.
Rules for OLW46
1. A one-layer card is a single piece of cardstock folded in half...no other layers.
2. Use an egg or eggs on the card. Be as creative with the theme as you wish. It's not limited to Easter cards.
3. Keep embellishments to a minimum.
4. Post your card on the Internet and link to it using the InLinkz button in the sidebar of Simplicity.
5. Most important rule of all: HAVE FUN!!!
