Glitter Butterfly PPA81

I learned a new (to me) technique recently.  Copic Markers over Transparent Micro Fine GlitterAfter applying strong sheet adhesive to cardstock I stuck this beautiful butterfly sticker over it. Then I rubbed glitter inside the lines of the sticker and brushed off the excess.  I airbrushed Copics G94 and G99 over it.  You can't see the glitter in the photo but take my word for it, it is sparkly!! 

 This is the layout challenge for Pals Paper Arts this week.  I used Basic Grey Kioshi paper due to the nature theme and soft colors.  I will post more glitter cards over the next few days. A2 size.
  • Stamps: Stampin' UP! sentiment
  • Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
  • Paper: Basic Grey - Kioshi 6x6 pad, black & white cardstock
  • Other: Copics, Nesties, Transparent Micro Fine Glitter (Cool Highlight), Elizabeth Craft Designs sticker

Well you sure didn't waste any time! It's interesting airbrushed instead of colored directly on the glitter. I found all my old Magenta stickers today, so I'm all set to do a variety of these!

I have not even tried airbrushing it yet! Very cool! I know this is stunning and sparkly in person!

I made a Christmas card yesterday with this technique - very sparkly but I like how it turned out. Your card is so nice - can't wait to see it in person. Think I'll make a few more cards using this technique. KKB

I tried it too when I got home, with the leaves.
