Shine on!



I went a little crazy with the glitter on this Sweet and Sassy Stamps butterfly! I used SU! Glowing Green glitter and Flax Art Glitter.  To add depth, I colored underneath the glitter. This technique works well with transparent glitter like Flax, which is a beautiful irridescent pale yellow. The Glowing Green is not irridescent and doen't have near the sparkle, but it's not too bad. The image is a digi stamp from Sweet & Sassy. Isn't he cute? I printed him out and colored him with Prismas and Gamsol.

The paper is DCWV, Bazzill and GP. The ribbon is American Crafts, and I used three different SU! punches. I get my money's worth out of my SU! punches, that's for sure!
