Britghten My Day!

By Debbie Seyer - A Peek Into My Stamping Room

A couple of weeks ago, I was talking to a friend and she told me about this cool technique she did using Acetate, Copic Markers and glitter. So I found some free time and got busy!

First I took a piece of acetate and stamped Small Fun Flowers all over using Jet Black Staz-on ink. After that dried, I die cut some scalloped circles using Jumbo Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. Then I turned the acetate over and colored in the flower using Copic Markers.

Then comes the messy part! Coat the side you colored with Aleene's Tacky Glue and sprinkle with Silver Glitter. This will take some time to dry. This is my card!


For the background of my card, I used the Silhouette Flowers Impressabilities to get that dry embossed look. Then I stamped the You Brighten My Day Greeting onto white cardstock and cut/embossed using a ribbon tag. I popped up my glitter circles using 3d foam squares and added the sentiment with some ribbon and its all done. The longest part was waiting for the glue/glitter to dry.

This is such a fun technique and there are tons of DRS Designs images that would be perfect to use! Give it a try!
