Can It Get Any Better Than Glitter?

Greetings and happy Wednesday!
I spent my afternoon playing around with a new technique. I saw a video on Youtube by Elizabeth Crafts and I knew I had to try it. Why? Because it involves two of my most favorite crafty components. Glitter (Do we need anything else really?) and coloring with my Copics. It just doesn’t get much better for me.

Here’s what I came up with!

What do you think? Can you see that the entire image is glittered?
So here is how I did it.

I used double sided sticky paper, black peel off outline stickers and fine white glitter. (I used the Elizabeth Crafts brand for all three of these.)

I peeled off the back side of the sticky paper and laid it on a piece of white card stock. Then I peeled off the front side of my sticky paper, now adhered to the card stock. Next I peeled off my black peel off sticker outline and carefully laid it onto the exposed sticky faced card stock, sticky side to sticky side. Then I covered it in glitter, rubbed, or burnished it in, really well and then brushed it off. Voilá!! A glittered image perfect to color with your Copic, or other alcohol based, markers. This was SNOW much fun to color.

Watch for more glittery samples and info about my upcoming class so you can make your own glitter flowers!
Thanks for stopping in! Hope you enjoyed!
Happy crafting! Shan
