O is for...

The Craft Barn Alpha challenge number 17  is brought to you by letter O.  I considered Octopus - they are truly amazing creatures - or Orange, but in the end I decided on Oriental as my word of the fortnight!
I die-cut the jar using my new Tattered Lace die from paper covered with double-sided adhesive film.  It took a few passes through the Calibur to cut - I would probably have been better off using the Big Shot, which seems to have a bit more oomph when cutting tricky materials, even with wafer thin dies.  I blended blue inks over the back of the ATC (my usual Centura Pearl, reverse side), stuck the die-cut shape paper side down onto the card (I used Cosmic Shimmer glue, it has a nice fine tip and is a great glue).  Once the glue was nice and dry, I removed the protective layer from the adhesive film and sprinkled on glitter - Diamond Sprinkles from Cosmic Shimmer.  It's a white glitter rather than crystal.  (Actually, I was going to use Micro Beads but I've put them somewhere safe....)

Thank you for stopping by - I hope you enjoyed the visit.  Come back soon!

Crafty Hugs,

Keren

Beautiful ATC. Love the blue background and the die cut with the glitter on looks stunning. I'm in the process of rediscovering the lost items, which may be worse cos I remember seeing them but still can't find them - very frustrating.lol.

So elegant, a lovely ATC.
It's like the missing sock you cannot find, you know it's there somewhere. How do these things hide themselves lol! Angela x
