Unicorn Challenge - Add Some Glitter

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? Christmas preparations have really notched up a step. There is so much to do.  I hope your plans are going well. Yesterday I sorted out all the presents that need posting so they can go in the post today. Every little helps.

The new challenge on the Unicorn Challenge blog starts today the theme is Add Some Glitter.


I made this card after watching a demonstration by Sue Wilson on Hochanda. For the background layer I took a piece of white card and I stamped some poinsettias in black archival around the edge. Once the ink was dry I  stamped the same poinsettias with Perfect Medium, over the black ones, these were then heat embossed with some gold embossing powder. Finally I inked over the edges of the card with Black Soot Distress ink.  


I took a piece of black card and I stamped the poinsettias with Perfect Medium over the surface. Then I dusted them with two shades of mica powder. Then from the center of the black  I cut last years festive angel by Sue Wilson. Behind the black sheet I put a double sided sticky sheet. I cut a gold angel which this time I embossed to get all of the detail. The angel was placed in the aperture of the black sheet and stuck to the sticky sheet. I used some fine glitter to cover the exposed sticky sheet. 


Peace was cut from some glitter card. Around the edge of the black I added some dries clear glue and I sprinkled it with a course glitter. I added gold dazzlers to the corners and ribbon across the center. 


I have been asked to make two more of these cards for a friend. So now I have three black angels to use, I think I can feel a design coming on. I have lost count of how many Christmas cards I have made this year but I am getting worried that I don't have enough. Time is running out and there is wedding prep to do as well. 


I hope that the rest of the week is kind to you. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Jackie, this is fabulous :-)

Now that you "made" me buy this angel (ha ha!) may I ask how you made the white background angel for it please? Did you stick the cut angel to a piece of card and cut around it or cut 2 angels and stick the cut out bits in the original? I'm intrigued!
