I’ve never really been into stickers, I’ve always been a ‘Stamping Girl’ but I came across Elizabeth Crafts at CHA and was instantly attracted to their new dies and then saw what they were doing with Copics and glitter – I was like a moth to a flame.
In the April Class, one of our projects involves this technique, but I thought I would give everyone a look, one a different card…..here goes.
Transparent Double Sided Adhesive
Silk Micro Fine Glitter
Cut a piece of Double Sided Adhesive to be a little larger than your sticker. Remove one side of the adhesive and adhere it to a white piece of card. Hold onto to the release sheet.
Remove the sticker by gently wiggling it off the sticker sheet. This will prevent it from losing it’s shape and lay it sticky side up on the release sheet.
Now take the double side adhesive piece and lay it on top of the sticker and remove the release sheet. You now have a very sticky piece of card with the sticker attached to it.
Dip the sticky card in Silk Microfine Glitter so that it is fully covered in glitter. ?
Start colouring your image. In mine, the background is YG11 and the leaves and stem are YG67, To lighten the colours, use a 0 marker.?
Now colour the flowers, I have used RV69, RV27, YR23 and the 0 marker to lighten the colours.?
Cut out the image and prepare your card. I find it best to dip the image in glitter again, as when you cut out the image, some double sided adhesive might be exposed and feels a little funny.
When finished, you will have this lovely sparkly image.
