Glittered stamped medallion card

I made this lushly glittered card for a card swap on the Craft Telly forum, using an Elusive Images mandala rubber stamp.

I stamped out the medallion image several times onto yellow card and heat embossed them in gold. I used a Sakura Quickie glue pen to fill in areas of the stamp design, one colour section at a time. I let the glue dry, then rubbed the glitter onto it and brushed off the excess. I only glittered sections of the medallion design that would be visible when the layers were mounted up.

When I finished glittering, I decoupaged the medallion layers and assembled and mounted it. The base card is a 6 x 6 inch card, covered with a co-ordinating DCWV paper and toning ribbon, embellished with a ribbon slide brad. As a finishing touch, I added a little bling.
I used purple, violet and lilac glitters, with a touch of green too. Foil Play stocks 35 colours of beautiful and very high quality ultra fine art glitter. The glitter is available in individual packs at the bargain price of 99p each, or in sets like the one pictured above, which offer further savings on the price per pack.
