Crafts and Me Digital Team Challenge: Glitter!


This week at Crafts and Me Challenges, Mina is our lovely hostess for the digi team and she challenges us to use Glitter on our project! I love sparkle, but don't really like the "mess" that glitter creates so I normally will add a much more subtle shine with atyou glitter pens or stickles which is what I did with my card today. You can see I colored the image with a combination of copics & prisma pencils and added stickles to the flowers and this precious angel's wings. I also added a thin border around the spellbinders cut with more stickles. Once you get me started, it's hard to stop with the glitter! LOL I ended up spritzing my prima flowers with pearl glimmer mist!! I absolutely ADORE the final result and had fun using this new (to me) graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime paper. The images I used are TWO fabulous digi's available RIGHT NOW at Crafts and Me. I combined Dusk with Old Log to create the sweet scene.

Here is a side view to see more of the glitter details:
