Playing with Fatasy Fiber

I tried my hand this week at playing with Art Glitters Fantasy Fibers. I've not used them before so I started off very simply.
I started by pulling out a few hairs of Cameo Rose Fantasy Fiber and spread them out on a non-stick craft sheet. I wanted to see what Fantasy Film would do so I ripped off a strip and randomly cut it into tiny bits with my scissors then sprinkled the tiny bits onto the Fantasy Fiber. I spread the Bellflower Fantasy Fiber on top of this to make a sandwich and covered with another non-stick craft
sheet.

I followed the package instructions and ironed for 3-5 seconds. Peeled up the top non-stick craft sheet to reveal the beautiful flattened and fused fiber concoction! This can be die cut or punched or used as is. I chose to die cut a primitive heart. I also die cut the same primitive heart from white cardstock to use as a backing for the fiber heart.
Once cut, I placed the heart on my non-stick craft sheet and ran some Designer Dries Clear (DDC) around the edges then dipped it in a bead tray of Pink Cameo Vintage Glass Glitter. This creates a sparkly rim around the entire heart!
While that was drying I created another sandwich of Fantasy Fibers and sprinkled in Art Glitters Dreamsicle Dazzlers and Dragonfly Dazzlers in between and ironed them together to create a background piece. I stamped the Stampscapes' sentiment in Black Archival Ink and edged it with Black Archival Ink as well because it dries quickly. I punched the scallop border edge with EK's Scalloped Scallop Edger Punch and layered on top of a burgundy cardstock. I used DDC to adhere the fiber sandwich to the card face then added the sentiment then the fiber heart. Three small gems (Want2Scrap Sleek Strips Rhinestones - Silver) were added to the sentiment. The Fantasy Fibers and Film are fun to play with and die cut very easily. Visit my blog for other ideas using Art Glitter products.
