WHY GLITTER.....

When you can Emboss...
Here I've taken a 20" x 7" canvas, randomly put Versamark over it and sprinkled WOW Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Powder on, then heat set. Then painstakingly punch out a gazillion butterflies, or ask a very dear friend to help you :) :), I randomly embossed some of the butterflies as well, then attach to 3 blank cardstock hearts, and attach to the canvas. It's still not finished, as I'm searching for a sentiment to place along the bottom. I'll think of one "one day" !!!
Why Emboss instead of glitter....you may well ask...Simple really, once the powder is heat set you're not going to get any irritating bits of glitter falling off. Perfect !!!
