Why I Love Glitter : )

I have always loved glitter ... the way it shines and makes something that was dull so beautiful or more beautiful than it was before. There is definitely a technique to it too ... you have to have patience to work with a q-tip or toothpick to make little pieces of hair have glitter or to shape little lines of lace, well you get the picture.  And there are soooo many fabulous colors and types transparent, opaque, pearl and more coming out all the time.  My family tries to keep me away from anything shiny lol : )  Seriously though it is very relaxing for me to come into my craft room and work on a card or project.  Sometimes I just look around for ideas or at all the wonderful little treasures I have been lucky enough to accumulate.  I haven't done any new cards since yesterday since I am having a terrible fibromyalgia flare up right now so I will share this one since it has lots of glitter.  This image is from Sweet Pea Stamps it is ~Rising Flame~  If you like this image you should go over to Sweet Pea Stamps site  they have some of the most awesome stamps.
Card Info ~ Colored with watercolor pencils then glitter added, the background was chalked with glitter chalks. Lots of little beads added to her headband.  Hope you enjoyed her : )


  1. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!!!!! I do have 1 question. I have a LOT of different products. However, I don't believe I have ever even heard of glittler CHALKS. Where do you get these or what is their brand name??? LOVE YOUR WORK.

  2. I got mine on E-bay and they are actually pearlescent chalks made by Pebbles Inc. -- I am pretty sure Hobby Lobby has them and they are in the Paper Wishes catalog too. They shimmer & sparkle. So pretty. There are 2 sets jewel tones & shimmers. :)

  3. Thanks to you I just placed an order for Sweet Pea Stamps!!! (can't believe I'm doing this) but some of them were just too darn cute and I got a sale price which ends in 4 minutes!!! lol
