I am going to show you a wonderful technique done with peel-off’s from Elizabeth Craft Design, Ultra Fine clear or white Glitter from Art Glitter and the Dual Brush Pens from Tombow. To start, cut a piece of double-sided adhesive sheet (from Elizabeth Craft Design), remove the backing sheet and place adhesive on a sheet of white cardstock. Remove the top sheet (save) and you now have a piece of white cardstock with a very sticky field of adhesive. With a piercer, remove the peel-off design and place onto the adhesive. Do not touch! Use the saved top sheet to burnish down the peel-off

Next, sprinkle the Ultra Fine glitter onto the sheet and burnish in with your finger. Tap off and reclaim the excess glitter.

IMG_2075Color the motifs using the Dual Brush Pens. They stay wet for a while so you can easily blend the colors using the colorless blender. I used the following colors for these ornament motifs: 815, 725, 703, 277, 245, 173 and 993. To shade and create the rich colors I blended the dark pink into the green and the dark green into the pinks. Don’t worry, the glitter will not come off onto your pen nib!

A little more sparkle is added using MONO Multi Liquid Glue and rhinestones. Let the coloring and glue dry.

Cut out all the motifs as close as you can to the peel-off motif.

Here’s the finished card. It’s hard to see in a photograph how beautiful and sparkling the ornaments are! The Ultra Fine Glitter is the secret for success. Peel-off hanging threads and a holiday sentiment is added as well as little gold bows attached with Power Tabs cut into quarters.

Here’s a close-up of the finished glittered and colored ornament. They contrast nicely on a distressed dark green Kraft-Core paper from Core’dinations.
