Scratch off Glitter Cards


Its Wednesday and time for more Angels Landing fun! This week the design team is using Glitter on their projects, and I decided to make Glitter Scratch Off Cards! I found these instructions in my blog surfing, and then found some cute riddles about cats. I colored the cats with colored pencils and outlined with a glitter pen. Here is what the cards looked like before the coloring and doodling and glittering....



Here are some instructions on how to make the glitter rub-off part. Very simple! You just combine one part dishwashing detergent to acrylic paint on a piece of acetate or transparency.



Then you just use a brush to make sections you will cut out to cover the answers. After I painted the rectangular sections, I sprinkled some glitter over the paint.


As you can see, I got glitter EVERYWHERE! haha! After the paint dried, I used scissors to cut out rectangular pieces and placed the painted acetate over the answers using zip dry to adhere. Fun! Lots of ways you could use this idea! Here is a picture as I rubbed off one of the cards. I was amazed at how easy it is !


What kind of ideas do you have to use scratch off paint? I would love to hear!! Be sure to stop by the other DT members to see what inspiration they have using Angels Landing images!
