FUN with COPICS and GLITTER!!

OK! First of all Im entering this in 2 Challenges. First of all, for the challenge over at Sketch and Stash the challenge is a sketch and well, as always they challenge you to use your stash, being it old or new. Ive used this Tiger stamp by Island Stamps that I've had for awhile, and well, just love to stare at it, but I've always been abit intimidated to actually use it as well... how do you colour something so magestic?! Anyhow....I'll get to that in a bit. Next I'm entering it in the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday as they're challenging you to use something Metal on your card and I've used these large eyelets from MM and the other little embellie is from CTMH (I dont know what it's called!)

Now!! What I've done here is this! I stamped the image and coloured it with my Copics, quite loosely, not too worried about blending and such, just blocked in the colours where I thought it should go. And honestly it loooked ok, I was almost afraid to go the next step as like I said before, I've always been too afraid to actually use this stamp and I was finnaly somewhat happy with how it was looking... But I went for it anyhow. I covered the image completly with my sheet of Be Creative Scor Tape and then rubbed in the micro fine Glitter Ritz in transclucent warm highlight. And WOW!! It's hard to really see it in the photo but it looks so great! It looks like I bought it not made it and kinda gives it a little vintage look. It's really quite neat! SO!! I must make another one now... wish me luck that this wasn't just a fluke! LOL

Anyhow... that's my excitment. I'll show a couple more shots of it below. the papers I've used here are all by CTMH. Thanks for looking as always!!!
