Clean and Simple II: Glitterama Day 9

Well, they had me as soon as I saw the word glitter - say no more, I was willing to give it a go!  In certain instances, you just gotta have a little bling .... right?
The picture doesn't give a very good idea of the glittery effect but maybe it's because I used watercolour paper which isn't very smooth to begin with.  I swiped the paper with Distress Stains (bundled sage and broken china) and used an aqua pen to create an ombre effect from dark to light.
I stamped the sentiment from Studio Calico Snap On and then heat set the piece of cardstock very well before adding Sticky Stuff powder and then layering Rock Candy glitter and reheating to set.
I wanted to make one more card with Distress Stains using broken china and a metallic pewter as well.  I didn't add glitter to this one but mounted it on a light grey card base and added a dragonfly from PTI's Happy Trails and a silver embossed sentiment from the same stamp set. 
 I mounted the sentiment panel to the base with foam dots.
The pewter distress stain adds some nice shine and sparkle in person - it was a good purchase!
