Sparkle N Sprinkle -- My Favorite Technique Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle "My Favorite Technique" Blog Hop. If you have come by way of creative Shanna, then you are in the right place. If not, you might want to start at the beginning at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog so that you will be eligible for some fun prizes! I just love techniques and when I saw this technique that our very talented designer, Marie, came up with, I knew I had to try it! You can see her instructions here. Basically I poured glitter on a Super Adhesive sheet and then pounced a few light colors of alcohol inks all over the glitter for a shimmery background. Since Easter is right around the corner, I thought I would use this cute little stamp set -- Easter Chicks. These stamps just make me smile. You can click here to see the card instructions.



Thanks so much for stopping by. Please make sure that you leave a comment on each designer's blog. Prizes are hidden in some of the designer's blogs, so don't miss out! Now hop on over to Brigita's blog to see her wonderful creation!

  5. Hi, April. I still have not tried this technique, and it certainly creates an awesome background! Your card is adorable, so sweetly colored and layered. Love that bow. Do you tie it in the middle and then adhere the embellishment? Or is it like a pronged brad or button which is tied? Beautiful card, April. Thank you for the inspiration this evening! hugs, de
