I was in the mood for glitter when I sat down to make my card. OK, I know, when am I not in the mood for glitter? But I REALLY felt like using glitter. So I got out my micro glitter and made a fun ocean background for this guy. I find these glitter backgrounds to be so fun to make. It’s all about the order of your masks. First I cut a seaweed shaped mask and put that down, then I added a circle stencil and applied the darker blue glitter. After I took off the circle stencil, I added the lighter blue glitter. Here’s a photo from just before I took off the seaweed mask on the second card:
It’s like magic. After I made my background, I started thinking about what color I wanted for my seahorse. I almost didn’t color him at all, but decided an orange seahorse would really pop. If you know me, you know I have a thing for googly eyes. I think they make everything better. So I got my googly eyes out and started playing. Often, when I can’t decide which size I want, I take pictures of each option, so I can see them together.
It was a tough choice and I don’t think there was a wrong answer here, but what do you think? Do you think I made the right decision? Speaking of decisions. My next decision also required a side by side comparison. How to arrange the sentiment:
But, you know what? I realized that I was making two cards and I could use both arrangements of the sentiment. I do prefer the one on the right, though.
Here’s a close-up of all that sparkle:
