And my final digital stamp creation (this week anyway) using The Stamping Boutique stamps.

I have lots of layers here! I printed the image on acetate, picked a glitter color and part of the image for that color. I “colored” that part of the image with Crystal Lacquer on the back of the printout and sprinkled with the first glitter color. I repeated this process until the image was colored in totally with glitter! It was set to the side to dry while the card base was put together. I followed the Week 1 Verve Sketch from SCS for the layout. When the image was dry, I attached it to a piece of glittered embossed cardstock by squeezing some Crystal Lacquer onto the back of the glittered image and sticking it to the sheet. Some trimming cleaned things up, add a little ribbon and a tag with die cut “love” word.

Hope you enjoy it!

Here’s my third card using the same glittered acetate technique mentioned earlier today.

I colored her in rich holiday tones to meet this week’s Holiday Challenge on  Michelle’s Challenge blog. It’s to use a holiday stamp from Michelle! Easy to do for sure! You have until Monday afternoon.

The sunlight catches the glitter so well!

This is such a cute stamp, that I had to color it with glitter! Very similar to Holly the Winter Fairy, I used different glitter colors on the back of the acetate to give this sparkly effect. P K Glitz just has so many wonderful colors that it’s hard to pick, but I managed to come up with this pretty aqua and red combo.

Don’t forget that there’s a challenge going on at Michelle’s Challenge blog. It’s to use a holiday stamp from Michelle! Easy to do for sure! You have until Monday afternoon.
