Before I left for Wichita, I got the cutest stamp from the new Stampin' Up catalog. Kind Koala ranks high on my Cute and Sweet - O - Meter!
What do you think? And what do you think about the microfine warm highlight glitter? Isn't it cool? The marker is actually on TOP of the glitter! So hard to photograph - wish you could see it in real life - the warm highlights are beautiful and the koala is almost silky!
This is fun to do:
You can find the Glitter Ritz (I have warm highlight) and the Be Creative Tape at Ellen Hutson. I have the 4.5" roll. I also think the 8.5 x 11" adhesive sheets would be a great idea.
Once you have covered your image with the tape and glitter - you really need to burnish it. Your fingers will work just fine, rub until smooth and glitter is no longer coming off. It will be soft and velvety.
Amazingly, this glitter is so fine that you can color right on top of it! I think light strokes work best. I used my Copics, but I understand that just about any marker will work. I'm thinking you might not want a very pointy hard marker, however, as it might make gouges in the glitter. (I used the warm grays on my koala - his cheeks are RV10. The flower is RV10, RV21, and R22. The entire image is outlined in BG10 and feathered out with C00.)
Don't you think you could make some really fun stamped cards with this technique? Love this - of course, I can never resist cuteness and glitter!
