Coloring on Glitter

Happy weekend to everyone. I wanted to share a technique that I learned last weekend at a crafting class. Everyone there was coloring with Copic markers but me, well I colored with my Spectrum Noir markers of course.

This is Christmas Elf Marci from La-La Land crafts. She has been colored on Glitter Ritz Micro fine glitter.  The first thing we did was cover paper with double sided adhesive. Next we added that glitter and burnished that glitter well onto the adhesive. After that we stamped the image with Momento Tuxedo Black ink. Once dry, it coloring time!
Here are the colors that I used:
Greens: CG1, CG3, CG4
Pinks: PP2, PP4, PP5
Reds: CR6, CR8, DR5, DR7
Browns: TN3, TN5, TN7, TN8
Skin: FS2, FS4, FS7, FS9
Blush/ Lips: CR3, CR5
White on candy cane: BG1, BG2
Buckle: CT1, CT2, CT4
Shadow: IB1


Here is the finished card, I absolutely love this technique!  I cannot wait to try it again!

I am entering this card into

Iam Lucy in Blue

Hey there everyone.... today I am sharing a card that I have made with Iam Lucy from Pixie Dust studio. I was feeling kinda blue ;)

For the background I used a Fiskars texture plate in my Cuttlebug. The rosette was cut with the Tim Holtz rosette die.

Here is a close up of the coloring. I used my Spectrum Noir markers in the TB family with some touches of Cool Grey. The hat was fluffed with Snow-Tex.  I also added some shimmer with a Star Dust Gelly Roll pen.

Here is the side view. As you can see, this was an easel card. I punched some snowflakes with my EK Success punch and added some bling.
Thanks for stopping by!
