Acetate Glitter Tutorial & Ladies of Leisure Give Away

I promised a tutorial for the acetate glitter card that I made for the Ladies of Leisure Card Challenge, so here it is.... Keep in mind, this is my first tutorial and I am technically challenged, so bear with me. A few of my close-up shots are quite blurry but I think you will get the idea of what to do. The reward for muddling your way through my first tutorial?- a look at the blog goodies I'm giving away, as well as, the deets on how to win. Of course, you can scroll past to tutorial but what fun would that be- lol!

Supplies: Acetate sheet
Line drawn image stamp
Black Staz-on
Dries clear glue (I use Art Glitter brand)
Fine glue applicator tip (Art Glitter)
Fine glitter (Art Glitter)
Embossing Buddy
Powder Pals (powder trays)
* Note- I usually transfer my glitter from the PeeWee
bottles to larger containers so I can pour the excess
glitter from the powder tray more easily.

2. Stamp image using Black Staz-on onto acetate.
I like to use a stamping mat (mine is actually just a
thick piece of Fun Foam that I bought at Michael's)
on images that are detailed and large in size. You
want to be very careful that the stamp does not
slide on the slick acetate and blur your image. The
Staz-on will dry very quickly.

3. Depending on your image, you may want to flip
the acetate and work from the side opposite the
stamped image. Whichever side you want to be facing
the outside of the card should be face down.

4. First, go over the image with an Embossing Buddy.
With the fine tipped applicator on the glue bottle,
fill the image, one section at a time,with the dries clear glue.
You will want the glue to fill the image completely
but not go outside the lines.

5. Sprinkle your first color of glitter on the
glued section. I usually work with 1 color
of glitter at a time and fill in the sections that
I want to be that 1 color before moving to the next.
When dealing with an image where you are
working with both bold and soft colors, I will
do the soft colored sections first. After you
sprinkle your glitter, you may tap off
immediately. Now fill in the next section with glue, and
repeat the glitter process until you are finished
with the entire stamped image.
If you are coloring a part of an image that
has a smaller design inside a larger image
(such as the polka dots in the letter "s")
fill in the smaller design first.

6. Once all of your glitter is in place, allow
the image to dry at least overnight (usually
12-18 hours.) You will know that it is dry
once you do not see the "murky" quality
that the wet glue leaves. Finally, dust any
remaining loose glitter away and complete
the card as you like.

Okay, now for the Ladies of Leisure Blog Candy Give Away....
