I've been having a ball with sequins and wanted to share a few card ideas I've been playing with in the studio that incorporated these pretty, PRETTY things!!! I just can't get enough of them! The iridescent sparkle and shape make them a perfect accent--they also make fabulous filler in a full card-front shaker pocket! SWEET!!!
Seriously, I am obsessed with sequins as much as I am with Washi tape! Eep!!!
Also, I wanted to mention a few extra tips:
- You might be tempted to color white/vanilla sequins with your Copic Markers, but be advised that the alcohol ink will more than likely ruin the iridescent finish of your pretty sequins.
- Glossy Accents is a perfect adhesive for gluing individual sequins into place as it dries clear and sets up very quickly
- A few sequins can go a long way--start with a little, then add more when filling your pocket...
- As I mention in the video, if you're good with a sewing machine, you can create your pocket that way; I am not so good and found Washi tape an easier, full-proof method for creating my pocket--the added bonus is that it is repositionable and enables you to interject some additional color and pattern to your project! BOOYAAAAAAH!!!
