Gliitermania Challenge # 2

Another Challenge. I am so glad I found http://cookingwithcricut.blogspot.com/ because their weekly challenges are making me experiment with my Cricut and my cuttlebug. I enjoy visiting the Chefs webpages and also seeing what others are doing with the challenges.

This week challenge was Glittermania. I love shiny things and especially glitter!!

This week I made my own cut file...I took a piece of public domain clipart and using my SCAL2 software broke it down so that the cricut could cut it out in different colors. This week I used a cute little owl as my focus subject. There were cut feathers on his chest in the clipart but I haven't managed to figure that out in the software so I changed the clipart and removed the feathers.

I hope my images show my glittermania work.

This close up shows my branch and my glittered letters.

and my finished card

The background of the card is a textured piece of scrappaper that I glittered around the edges. The owl is sitting on a branch of a paper I made in a 3 day workshop on using Golden Paints in different techniques. One workshop was called Bling=Bling...and we did a lot of papers for collage so I used a small piece for the branch. The lettering was cut out on Cricut and then glitterized. the hearts are texture stickers.

BTW thanks for all the nice comments on my first card last week!!! If anyone wants a copy of my SCAL2 cut file I would be happy to email it to you. I have appreciated all the Freebies I have collected by visiting all the various sites. They all help me understand the different features and techniques of both the cricut and the software since I am limited with only owning two cards. My little collection is growing and growing thanks to all the wonderful sharing of talents.
