Creative Artiste is a mixed media challenge so I thought it'd be a good time to step away from the cards and make something different. So I made a 'thing'!
My 'thing' is supposed to go near a window to catch the light, but it was very difficult to photograph.
It is made from three layers of glass slides (Ranger Memory Glass - these have been in my stash for many years). I used an Alte New layering stamp, stamping and embossing one layer in black on the top slide, and another layer in clear ink and pink mica powders. I added more colour with alcohol ink. I smeared glitter glue over the bottom glass slide, which added sparkle but also helped hold it together. Finally, I added the sentiment and wrapped the slide edges with silver tape.
Thank you to Andree for her kind encouragement and thanks for having me at Creative Artiste.

A gorgeous sparkly creation Marina! The blends of mica, alcohol ink and glitter glue look amazing all layered up. The wonderful sentiment should be every artist's mantra.
