One of the things Clare love to embellish with Art Glitter are digital stamps.  If you have never used a digital stamp, they are graphic images; that look like a stamped image, you can print out on your computer.  The printed image is then treated like a stamped image.  Digital stamps are Clare's favorite method for making last minute cards when she has no stamp in the stash to fit the occasion! Clare found these peonies at an Etsy store called Aurora Wings.  She loves the flowers, fairies and angels at this shop.  This digital stamp is called Peony.
Once Clare printed the image out, she colored it with Copic Markers, using the colors shown in the photo below.  She then added Crystal Art Glitter using the Ultra fine Metal tip to add dimension to the peonies. The white glitter really makes it more three dimensional!   Love it!

Clare also used Art Glitter Leaf glitter and the Ultra fine metal tip along the lines in the leaves on the digital image.  
For the lattice die behind the stamped image, Clare cut Art Glitter Stick paper and applied the Art Glitter Cacao Elements.  This is a very chunky product and does not fill in all of the white space, so Clare applied a second layer with Art Glitter Chestnut Ultrafine glitter.  So beautiful and the card smells wonderful!  She added a bit of ribbon and buttons and stamped Happy Mother's day using a Close to My Heart stamp.
