You Sparkle....

Hey everyone!! I just got the new Edward Wild Sprout from The Greeting Farm and HAD to make something with him. He is so darn cute...how could I resist? Actually, I colored him yesterday, but I glittered the heck out of him and had to wait until today when I got out of work to actually make a card with him.

I colored him with Prismas/Gamsol and then I used xmas red Stickles on his sweater, broken china Distress Stickles on his shoes and a Quickie glue pen and Martha Stewart glitter on his hair. He REALLY sparkles. lol For the sentiment, I used a rub on and wrote over it with my Quickie glue pen and added MS glitter to that too.

For the background, I inked the 'indent' side of my Sizzix embossing folder with Versamark. Ran it through the Cuttlebug and then sprinkled glitter ep on it. It is hard to see in the scan, but the debossed areas are glittery and the raised design isn't. I LOVE doing this with embossing folders. Finally, I used the MS lace doily punch to do the two black strips and assembled the card. I used some glue on the end of the sentiment strip so it would hold the bend better. I added some rhinestones and Edward is pop dotted up on the card.
Well, tomorrow is a long day for me since I am working the drive thru, so I doubt I will be around much for the rest of the week. Have a great week/weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Robin, this is just too cute! A couple questions for you. When you say Prismas, are those watercolor pencils? Can you use regular colored pencils with Gamsol? Thanks!
