Penny Black & Art Glitter


 This month at Art Glitter, we have been fortunate enough to play with some absolutely beautiful Penny Black Stamps.  Here is what I did with my favorite Penny Black stamp:

I have listed the directions and materials that I used.  As long as you work from the finest (Microfine) glitter to the coarsest you are planning on using, you can create with any colors.  Also, be sure to use opaque glitters if you want to completely cover the main color. If you plan on changing the base color, you should change the ink color to one that matches, as the bonding powder does not completely cover the area.

1)  Stamp on white card stock, pour bonding powder on when wet, and heat set.
2)  Pour the Microfine powder on immediately and shake off excess.  This will create a shimmering blue image that will look a lot like the picture below.   
 3)  Use the image of the stamp to add the sparkling details.  Just follow the gorgeous lines with the fine tip on the Designer Dries Clear and cover with the glitter of your choice.  I started with the silver and the gold swirls.
4)  Then, add the small green leaves with the Ultrafine Lime Rind.
5)  Next, color the butterflies with the various colors of Hologram Glitter.
6)  Add the flower colors.  I chose neon pink for this.
7)  Finally, color the larger leaves.  I used the Vintage Glass Glitter.  Let it dry completely.
8)  Assemble the card.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Come check out my blog at www.rememberinglifesmoments.blogspot.com any time! Until the next time that I see you, keep glittering!
