Glittery Me

I have glitter everywhere! I remember now why I like glitter pens, Stickles and glitter glue so much. There is glitter all over me, my desk, the floor, the cats and, I have tracked it throughout most of the house. IRL you can see the image better than you can in this picture and it is very pretty. More than likely this is a one of a kind original. The glitter is the more clear kind but every picture I took made the glitter layer look thicker. The stamp is from Stampendous and was one that I purchased on my last trip to Papertrix. I stamped the image with Memento ink and then colored everything with Prismacolor pencils. Then I sprayed the entire image with spray adhesive and added the iridescent glitter. The paper, card stocks and the die cut glitter stars I used are all from DCWV.

For someone that doesn't enjoy using glitter all that much, I sure have accumulated a lot of it! I have entire drawer full of it, in all colors. The sad thing is that I also have duplicates of several of those colors. I taught preschool for 12+ years and I think that might have something to do with my glitter reluctance. But in the quest to use supplies on hand, I have opened that drawer and glittered everything within reach! I hope you are having a relaxing Sunday afternoon.

I LOVE glitter and use it often, so I know exactly what you mean about it getting everywhere - I even found glitter on the steering wheel of my car - but that card makes it all worth it, don't you think? I love it!

The glitter is awesome on this card! I have a little glitter, but don't use it often. I need to be brave and use it more because I like how it looks. Super cute card!
