Merry Monday Challenge #203!

Kristie's challenge at Merry Monday this week is to add glitter to an ombre project. If you know me well, you know I love to use techniques in my projects when I can so using the ombre AND adding!

I decided to use 3 colors to create the ombre layer.  Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Watermelon Wonder. Once I had them all glued to a white cardstock piece underneath, I embossed the layer:

My next step was to pounce the cardstock with VersaMark Ink and sprinkle with Heat & Stick Powder. I melted the powder with my Heat Tool and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. I heated the cardstock one more time so that the Heat & Stick would pull in the glitter. It is so gorgeous in real life!

I am sure of my teammates have some shimmer & sparkle to show you today so make sure you head over to Merry Monday to take a peek and maybe you'll decide to participate this week!
