This week's OLW is hosted by Jennifer, and it's to make a birthday card featuring a bird. Fabulous! Here's my first effort for it, a glittery confection that involved thinking outside the margins...or inside the margins...oh, whatever.
I love this peacock set from Hero Arts, but it's always a challenge to keep the peacocks from just floating. I'm going to try my shadow stamps next, I think. But for now, a fancy cut does the trick.
There are two types of glitter on the card: Stickles (in lime and turquoise on the bird) and Doodlebug loose glitter (on the ground, as it were). I attached the loose glitter with a 1.5" x 5.25" strip of Tack and Peel....sheets of adhesive you can cut to size, punch, or die cut. Very cool.
Happy Monday! And if you haven't played the OLW this week, jump on board!
