Playing with Glitter

Who doesn't love glitter!   I love working with new products.  This morning I had so much fun learning how to color the Elizabeth Craft Designs Silk, Cool Diamond, Microfine Glitter.  I watched the video (LINK) where Els shows us how to use the Diamond Glitter with the Peel off Stickers and color the design with Copic markers. Els gives us very detailed, easy to follow instructions.   I am so hooked, I think I could color glitter designs all day.  The results are so beautiful every time.

Here is a picture of the daisies that I chose to color.  I love that you can color just a small portion of the design and blend it out with the Copic Blender Pen for a very dimensional look.  You will enjoy watching Els video and learning all the steps for completing this fun project.

I really love the Peel Off Stick daisy glitter design and wondered if I could use the glitter on Susan's dimensional flowers.  I decided to use the Garden Notes - Sunflower dies to create a similar daisy as in the Peel Off Sticker design. You know, I always like a challenge!

I used the Elizabeth  Craft Clear Double Sided Adhesive on a piece of white card stock to die cut the Sunflower.  In this picture I was not sure if I would need extra petals so I die cut two of the large flat sunflower die and several of the petals.  I ended up not needing the extra petals.

 I used a shallow box and followed Els instructions on how to use the glitter on the coffee filter.  My die cut pieces were all glittered.  I used Copic markers to color the petals just like I did on the glittered Peel Off  Stickers. I only used two of the large sunflower die cuts.   I wanted to try and duplicate the flowers on the Peel Off Stickers, so I used the stem die from the Garden Notes - Tulip set.  It was backed with the same adhesive and also colored with Copic Markers. Susan's new Flower Tool Set was used to shape the petals and leaves.  When shaping, the glitter did not come off on the molding pad.

The oval dies I used are from the ECD Accordion Oval Card.  This was a very fun project and I hope you will give it a try.  I think the Peel Off Sticker Glittered Daisies were be beautiful on a card and the Glittered dimensional flower could go on top of a gift box. 

The products I used can be purchased from Elizabeth Craft Designs:
