ODBDSLC215 - Anything Goes Part 2

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is part 2 Anything Goes.  Join us here for all of the details.

 For the Anything Goes challenge this week I was living the vida loca, ya, you guessed it, glitter!! I had glitter everywhere, my face, clothes, I think I even drank some in my coffee!  The result was well worth it though because my poinsettias are covered in frosty goodness and ready for Christmas!  I started out by embossing the background with a Merry Christmas folder and heat embossing the wonderful new ODBD Wisemen Ornament in black and water coloring it with soft blue re inker and a water pen, the ODBD Doily die is the perfect frame.  Next I made a bunch of poinsettias with the new ODBD Peaceful Poinsettia dies and sponged them with soft blue ink while they were still in the die, next came the glitter explosion and I layered it all on the flourish and branches from the ODBD Fancy Foliage set and extra poinsettia leaves made from the flower die.  I hadn't got enough of the glitter yet, so I put a few large pieces on the branches.

ODBD Stamps Used: Wisemen Ornament

Other Supplies: Foam tape, glitter, embossing folder, heat embossing, re inkers, water pen.

Check out the blogs of my talented friends for more inspiration.
