The motto of Faber College in the movie Animal House: Knowledge Is Good.
The motto of today's card: Glitter Is Good.
I could jibber-jabber about it, but pictures make the point better.
The sparkle and shine add distinction to the brown dragonflies, which before blended into the vivid background even though I used Memento Luxe pigment ink, which is pretty opaque. I applied Stickles and spread it around with a damp paint brush for more of a distressed effect.
And yes, the background was made with Distress inks applied with a stipple brush. I dropped water onto it with a brush to apply the splotches for a dreamy effect.
A great card to give to a guy, even with the glitter, don't you think?
