Chipboard + Glitter = LOVE

Design Team Member Steph has a tutorial to share with you today.

I just want to share with you how I applied glitter on our chipboard.

You will need:
1. Paint
2. Fine Glitter
3. Glimmer Glaze
4. Chipboard
5. Heat Embossing Tool
First of all paint your chipboard. Make sure you paint all the sides, as we don't want any of the natural color showing.
One the paint is dry, cover the chipboard in Glimmerglaze. I have used "Icicle" because of its fine sheer glaze which also acts as an adherant.
Once the Glimmer Glaze is applied, sprinkle your fine glitter all over the chipboard. As you can see it gives the chipboard a beautiful fine glitter, that just catches the eye.
The beauty with the Glimmer Glaze is that it doesn't take long to dry. Literally a blast of hot air and you are done.
Here is a close up ........

Have fun. I will be back with more tutorials soon.

How simple is this and the effect is just beautiful. It gives the chipboard a lovely light and delicate look, with a sparkle to keep the Bling Loving Ladies very happy.

I have to say that the photos don't really show the sparkle to it's real effect, so have a go and see for your self.

Thanks so much Steph for sharing this technique with us.
