I am so honored to be the guest artist for Dreamweaver Stencils for the month of September!  I will be posting every Thursday this month in conjunction with the cross promotion between the two companies! What a GREAT teaming up of products. (Use the code DW20 on the Art Glitter web site to receive 20% off your orders of $25 or more!)
The card I am sharing today is one that was just recently published in CardMaker Magazine. 
Adding color with glitter and using stencils is a lot of fun and you have so many options.

I started with the Maple Leaf Stencil.  It is so lovely and you can do so much with this stencil.  I used transparent paste and while the paste was still wet I added TWIG glitter to the branch and CRYSTAL glitter to the leaves.  Once the paste was 100% dry I burnished the glitter a bit then used alcohol markers to color over the top of the glitter to make then fall leaves.  There are many markers to choose from so just play with the ones you like! 

A closer look at the card!

Love the way the Art Glitter shines through.
Just another angel!
The sentiment on the inside.
Straight on view.

Hope you enjoyed the card and make sure and visit the Art Glitter blog all month and Dreamweaver for more wonderful creations by the talented design teams!  Happy Creating...Kristi.
