Episode 120: Bowling Card & Glitter Technique

Hi Crafters!  Here is a bowling card I made my niece for her birthday.  She just turned 11 and is in bowling leagues.  What a different interest for a kid.  I love it!  :)  I go into detail on how I made the glitter marble look on the bowling ball.  What's interesting is the green glitter is actually yellow glitter.  But w/ the black cardstock it changed the color of it to green.

I had the bowling pins against a white background and it just washed out completely.  So I took a sponge dauber and yellow ink and inked up the whole background.  That isn't in the video as I changed it after I filmed.

Check out the ripples in the ball:

This happened because I got impatient and used my heat gun.  lol  Note to self in the future - Just leave it alone to dry!  :)

On a personal note, I hit 90 lbs down this last week.  Woo Hoo!  I can't believe how close I am to 100 lbs down.  I'll definitely be posting it here when I hit that mark.  :)  To know how I did it click on the 'A New Me' tab at the top.
