It's Tuesday! Good news for "TUE" reasons! First, it's not Monday! And second, it's time for a Tips and Techniques! Karen here from Craftily Yours, and I am super excited to show you how to use some of those gorgeous Stickles to make waves!
First, I cut a card mat (with a circle in the middle) and a smaller mat to go behind it.
I used Timeless Twine in light blue and glued one piece across the mat using my glue. Of course, I made it wavy. Then I laid a strip of True Blue Stickles just below the first piece and laid another strip of twine down. Remember, Stickles isn't just glittery goodness, it's glittery GLUE!
I kept putting down Stickles and layering up the twine until I got enough twine down to fill the hole in my mat. I alternated using Stickles in True Blue, Waterfall, and Turquoise to add some dimension. When I was done, I put a little extra Stickles on top just to make sure it was good and sparkly - like the water at the ocean!
It's ok if there are some spaces because you can just fill 'em in with more Stickles! Once it dried, I trimmed the edges and used it to make this cute birthday card! The boat is a cut from the Cameo store that I colored in with copic markers and TH distress ink.....and I added some sky with distress as well.
I added some Christmas Red Stickles to the flag and embellished it with a little Snug Hug ribbon and a nautical brad!
I really love how the card turned out! It looks like it took a long time, but the whole card took me about 20 minutes!
Hope I've inspired you to make some waves!
