Pinspired #6 and CAS on Sunday

Here is a challenge for me: Pinspired #6


                                                        

The last time I used nail polish was in my  teenage years and that was several lifetimes ago.....But I do like some glitter on my cards, sometimes....

So here is my take on it:









I cut up strips of white cardboard, smeared them with inks in different colors and covered them with UTEE several times - always melting the stuff in between to get a thick layer on it. Once that was achieved, I dusted gold glitter on top and it stuck, because the Utee was still hot....I inked up the Hero Arts Zig Zag Background Cling with Versamark and stamped the card. The sentiment is a Studio 112 stamp (on foam dots) and the gold glitter strip I made with double sticky tape. This all sounds somewhat complicated, but it really wasn't.

I am also linking this card with the CAS on Sunday challenge - the theme is "Thank you".

Hallo! Oh, die Karte ist toll! Danke für Deinen Kommentar auf meinem Blog! Diese Punkte sind enamel dots und die gibts von vielen Herstellern. Bis jetzt kenn ich sie von My Mind's Eye, Basic Grey und Echo Park. Wenn Du in den USA bist, bekommst Du sie ganz leicht bei 2peas oder jedem anderen online shop. Liebe Grüsse, Vanessa

Hey Cornelia, I remember commenting on this card earlier however, it doesn't appear in the list of comments for some reasons. By the way, I like this card by all means, especially with all the glitters and bright colored banners on your card, great take on the challenge.

Also thank you so much for reminding me to comment on your blog candy, but I do have a comment posted dated 4th April.Please let me know if you have trouble seeing my comments on your blog, so that I can resubmit them. :-)
