Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Glittered Dandelion

Earlier this morning I posted some cards I had made using a gilding technique.  This got me wondering whether the technique could be used with glitter.

I stamped one of the Personal Impressions dandelions stamps onto some dark brown pearlised card using Versamark, I then sprinkled it with Stamp n Bond and melted it with my heat gun.  Next, I covered it with glitter and pressed it well into the tacky impression.

I mounted it on some gold mirri board and placed it onto some dark red glitter card from Dovecraft.  I added some sparkly organza ribbon and some flat backed gems.

It was very hard to photograph, perhaps you can see the detail a little better in this close up.
