GLITTER

This is my creation for the SSDS Challenge - Gliiter,Bling & Sparkles. I have made a 6 layer 3D Mandala which is all done with glitter powders, and made it into a pop-up card..
I stamped the Primrose mandala  6 times onto cream cardstock and heat embossed with dark green. I have used 3 different shades of green glitter powder and 1 yellow. Just in case no-one has done this before - each coloured section has to be flooded with glue using a very fine tip and then sprinkled with the glitter powder. You can't move on to the next colour until each one is dry, so these take forever to make. !!
When it was dry, I mounted the bottom layer onto cream card and cut round it leaving a very thin border. It was then mounted onto the zesty green card. Each layer is cut round a different part of the pattern, getting smaller each time, until mine was topped with a primrose. The same process was used to create the corner pieces. I then mounted it onto a dark green Pop-Up diamond shape card made from dark green cardstock at 220gms as the mandalas are quite heavy when finished.
It's a pity the picture doesn't show well enough the extreme shine on this, but if I use the flash you can't see it at all LoL.
Here's a pikkie of the detail:
