Ombre Glitter Cardby Sharon Jeffs
One of the things that I really look for when buying a die is whether or not it can be used for more than one type of project. If I can't think of at least three ways I could use it then I won't get it. The Fish Scales Card panel is a fantastic die with an infinite amount of different ways it can be used such as the background for a mermaid or fish or dragon, multi-coloured inserts, layered over a print or used as a mask!
For my card I played around with different glitters to create an ombre effect that I really liked on a piece of blank card. I used 'Glue and Seal' with distress Glitter and went layer by layer, making sure each layer was dry before adding the next one.
Once finished, I die cut the Fish Scales from a piece of black card and layered it over the ombre glitter panel. This was super easy since this panel features a border around the die cut that is wide enough to add glue and stick the panel securely.
To finish off my card I die cut a Solid Paper bow from a scrap of metallic card stock then layered it over my panel to finish it off.
Originally I had planned to add a rhinestone to the centre of my bow but I kind of didn't think it was needed with so much glitz already on show!
