Technique Tuesday -- Coloring on Glitter Using Outline Stickers

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle Technique Tuesday! If you hopped a long with us on our Winter Wonderland Blog Hop last week you might remember seeing this card I made where I colored on glitter using outline stickers.  I want to show you how I did this because this would look great on all those Christmas cards you are making!

Supplies needed:
  1. 2  1/2 inch wide Tear - ific Tape SAT11
  2. Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter GM2000
  3. copic markers or water based markers
  4. outline stickers
  5. white card stock
  6. Dove Blender pen  99535 if using water based markers
Adhere a strip of the Tear-ific Tape to one side of your white card base.  Peel off the protective cover and add Cloud Nine glitter.  Peel off stickers and add them over the glitter and color inside the stickers. I used copic markers .  Start with a color around the edges of the sticker and use the blender pen to pull the color into the image. This helps it look more dimensional.  Then you might want to go in again and use a little darker color in some areas.

Here is the finished piece.

I also tried coloring with water based markers and they worked well also.   I started coloring with the lighter shade of blue first.

Then I added a darker blue around some of the edges and used the Dove Blender pen to blend the darker color into the lighter color.

I did the same with the orange on his belly.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you liked this easy technique and will try it on some of your Christmas cards. Have a great day!
