Glittered Hummingbird Stained Glass WIndow

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

 For the background, I created a frame out of Coconut White Card using the inner die from Sue Wilson's Mirrored Striplet Die Set. I cut it 4 times around the edges of the card. I popped a piece of CE Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I removed the other backing sheet and popped the die cut frame on top. I added CS Ice Blue Polished Silk Glitter to the exposed adhesive. I matted onto Coconut White Card.

I cut Sue's Hummingbird Stained Glass Window Die out of Coconut White Card. I added more DS SA Sheet to the back. I sprinkled 4 colours of Polished Silk Glitter into areas of the exposed adhesive. I used Ice Blue, Turquoise, Light Purple and Rose Copper. I spread the glitter around with my fingers, burnishing well till the whole area was covered.

Quite a quick card to make if you're comfortable with the random colouring of the stained glass window die.

Thanks for stopping by.
