5 for 5 Christmas 2015 Day 1 - Glitter

Welcome to Day 1 of our 5 for 5 Christmas Blog Event. Today our theme is "Glitter". We are all sharing a project where we used glitter. Each day our 5 Designers will post a Christmas Inspired Project based on a theme. Some of us are offering prizes, so be sure to visit all the links below and leave comments. My prize is shown at the end of this post, check it out!!

For my project today I painted some wood blocks green and added some white glitter letters. After I looked at the white letters, I thought they would be nice in red so I used an ink blender and rubbed in some Festive Berries Distress ink over the letters to make them a red. 

After the red distress ink was added. I think they look more Christmassy!!

If you saw my 5 for 5 Halloween projects, these letters are the backsides of the BOO letters I made for Halloween. So this is a 2 for 1 project.

My prize for this event is two Tim Holtz Blueprints Wood Christmas Stamps - Stocking and Candy Cane. Just follow my blog and leave a comment for a chance to win. I will announce the winner on my blog Saturday, December 12. Thanks for stopping by!

  11. What a great way to color those glitter letters! I agree that the red is much more festive than the white!
