All That Glitters

There's nothing quite as sparkly as fresh fallen snow... 
so I chose a snowman image for the Sweet Stampin' Glitter & Sparkle Challenge.

February 20 - 26
Theme: Glitter & Sparkle
Sponsor: Crafts and Me

I hope you'll participate!

Here's my card:

The snowman (snowgirl) image and coordinating sentiment are part of the From the Heart Stamps free stamp of the month digi set. If you get it and create with it and post the link to their challenge blog, you'll receive next month's free image for FREE. It's really a SWEET DEAL! So that's exactly what I'm doing... I'm linking this card to the From the Hearts Digital Stamp of the Month Challenge.

I've never been very good at getting glitter to stick... no, let me rephrase that... I've ALWAYS had MAJOR difficulties trying to get glitter to stick. So I've been doing some research... and it seems I've found a plan that works for me. I used Ranger Glossy Accents and "colored" the pom pom and rim of the hat, then while it was still wet, I covered it with glitter and shook off the excess. Voila! It seems to have worked for me! YAY!!!!

Here's the inside of my card:

A closeup of the left side which features the sentiment:

Remember, it's all about the glitter!

Image & Sentiment: From the Heart Stamps Snowman and Cocoa colored with Copic Markers and Zig Wink of Stella marker (the steam on the cocoa)
All Papers (including the silvery sparkly paper): from my scrap file
