Add a little Shine | Altered Lamp Shade

I decided I needed a new lamp, actually I've needed one for a while, but lately I'd had enough of getting out of bed to turn the light off when I was finished reading and ready for bed.... so I found this lamp at Winners.  Yippee! Loved the grey colour!  But I felt it needed a little something.  So with one piece of Best Creation Silver Glitter Cardstock, the lamp was given a face lift!

The bottom ruffle part is just 1" piece of the glitter cardstock folded and glued.  The flowers are simple circle rolled flowers with a bit of Tim Holtz ribbon in the centre.  The butterflies were punched using a Martha Stewart Punch.

tip : the glitter cardstock is very thick and sturdy which is great for many projects but not so great with a detailed punch (or maybe I'm not just strong enough :)) Anyway, so I peeled the silver glitter part away from the cardstock, and it peeled off in a pretty big piece.  So then I fed that into the punch and Voila!  Beautiful silver butterflies!

  1. Wow! Way to customize! I love the monotone look to it all and good job on the butterflies.
    So when do you completely redo a dresser? Gonna need a lot of card stock for that. lol.
