Lots of glitter

This is a first for me - until now I have only used sprinkles of glitter.  However, I saw this technique today and had to try it.  I have become addicted to a new series of shows - Create and Craft is on 5 hours a day on our DirectTV.  Many of the shows feature paper crafting - kind of a Home Shopping show with demos.  Now I have even more ideas and even less time to try them!  At any rate, a demo today showed placing a layer of liberal amounts of glitter beneath a die cut.  I did not have the same tools, of course, but I think I like the result with what I had.  This is a new to me Tattered Lace panel die.  I cut the die, then at the end placed the cut out back in the opening.  Meantime, I measured the opening.  I used some sticker paper cut to that size, and adhered it to the base in the right location, sticky side up. I alternated patches of gold, lavender, and red glitter on the sticky paper.  In retrospect I think I should have had a bit less gold and more of the others.  I added the sizzix sentiment and punched butterflies - with sprinkles of glitter.   I would really appreciate any suggestions.
May all of you have a most blessed Easter, rejoicing in the knowledge of the Resurrection of Jesus.

I like the concept - that is new to me too! And the particular die cut you chose to use is a good one for this technique. Thanks for sharing your project & creativity with us at Aud Sentiments!
