Pumps



Time for a new challenge from Pattie's Creations and its all about getting sparkly.  This can be interpreted in a number of ways - gems, spritz, glitter.  Glitter is the way to go for me.  You can never have too much glitter, can you?





I've used the Pumps and Flowers digi image from Pattie's Etsy store and the technique I used is called "Coloring on Glitter."  (Basically, you cover your image with glitter and then color it with whatever medium you like best.  If using a rubber stamp, cover the cardstock with glitter, stamp your image, and then color it.)   How fun and super sparkly!  The entire image is covered with double sided adhesive and Cloud Nine glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  After burnishing the glitter to make sure it was firmly adhered, I took out my Copic markers and began coloring the image.  Since I'll never have a pair of Louboutin shoes (which are known for their red soles), I decided to make a funky pair of my own.  I also added a turquoise gem to the center of the flower just in case there wasn't enough sparkle :-)!

For those of you concerned that this will ruin your Copic marker tips, it doesn't as long as you are careful.  I try to use the side of the tip a bit more and don't press down with the point.  I also wipe off any stray glitter that might get on the point before replacing the cap.

Now it's your turn to Get Sparkly and show us what you've got.  You'll have two weeks to upload your creation to the Pattie's Creations Design Challenge blog.  While you're there, check out how the rest of the team got their sparkle on.  Have a super sparkly day!

Hi, Anne! So I need to get something straight - LOL - I want to make a beautiful digi card, too - so you actually burnished the cloud nine glitter into your cardstock and then RAN IT THROUGH YOUR PRINTER to get the digi shoes printed on the glitter, and then colored it, right? It did not do anything to your printer, right? LOL can you tell I'm paranoid? It's a beautiful card! hugs, de
