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!
