Leave a Little Sparkle

Games of Thrones may be over, but the dragon glass is not.

Hey Everyone, It's EK back with another Guest Designing post and I want to make sure you know that you can pick up your own bundle of Doodles Paper Playground's Dragon Glass Sparkle Blends, and I thought I would play around with it and the very cute Dragon and Bird stamp set from Wild Rose Studio over at White Rose Crafts.

I just didn't feel like making a shaker card today, so I tried a little something different.  So I started with a piece of 13 Arts Aqua Flora Collection  paper pack.  I adhered the dark watercolored printed paper to an A2 card frame.

I then took some thick crafting glue that dries clear and added a thick layer around the edges of the card.

I then poured the sequins all over the card, pressing the blend into the glue gently with my fingers.

I shook off any excess sequins and moved a few around to create a really cool frame of bling.

I then colored my dragon and fussy cut out the image.  I adhered it with some double stick tape to the center of the card.

Finally I added a sentiment sticker to the card and set it aside to let it dry.

Let me know if you think this new blend of sequins looks like 'dragon' glass.  Until then, Happy Crafting.
