All That Glitters

I haven't been much of a glitter person (Stickles are the exception) until I found this fun technique using
 Peel-off stickers by Elizabeth Craft Designs, micro fine glitter, Be Creative Tape, and Copic markers.  I saw some examples at my LSS so I came home, experimented a little then went online to Elizabeth Craft Designs.
This double sided tape is an amazing way to apply micro fine glitter. 

After I put the tape on a piece of cardstock, I applied the Peel-off sticker then sprinkled the glitter and pressed it with my finger (to burnish it).  I used Copic markers to color the flower and leaves - so much easier than trying to apply glitter in all the tiny sections and a much greater color choice.

I dug in my scrap drawer to make a quick card.

I love the sparkle!  This was a really fun technique.  I just ordered 6 more sets of Elizabeth's Peel-off stickers. Oh, they come in gold, silver and black-$1.99 a sheet. I found the directions (after playing on my own) on the website under the Gallery tab.  That takes you to her Facebook page and if you go into the picture albums, you'll find the directions.
I'm sure I'll be doing more experimenting, especially with the tape.  I did remember why I love Stickles and have stayed away from glitter - there was glitter floating everywhere around my craft room and I'm sure my make-up will sparkle for days!!!

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
