Are YOU a Glitter Fan?

Hello, Get Inky! Stamps fans, it's Julie from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers with today's glittery inspiration.  And it's Wednesday -- I can see the weekend from here!  Woot!

I don't know about you, but I am not a huge glitter fan.  It's way too messy for me.  I once made a glittery project out on my deck on a cold day in October, and I STILL found glitter from one end of my house to the other.  There seems to be no way to avoid it.  Especially with 3 dogs (that make 12 paws) tracking it around with them. So, I tend to use glitter alternatives, like glitter glue.  So, even though the current theme is glitter.  I cheated just a little bit.  See what you think!


I used a Get Inky! digi stamp on the sailboat and paper pieced it.  That was a new digi technique for me, but was very easy to do.  Then, after I fussy cut each piece, I used a corresponding color of glitter glue, a spritz of water, and a paint brush, and painted on my glitter glue.  Here's a close up so you can hopefully see the sparkle a little better.


Can you see how each piece of the sailboat -- even the flag -- has it's own glittery wonderfulness to it?  It's a great technique if you don't like to get messy.

The "Birthday Wishes" sentiments is from the Get Inky! Stamps Sew Sweet Cupcakes stamp set.
