Glitter Cards

Last year I attended a class sponsored by Krazy Kreations.  The technique in the class involved covering cardstock in adhesive, burnishing glitter into it, placing peel offs on top and finishing by coloring with Copics.  Naturally, I purchased everything I needed to make more cards (and then some), and here it is another year has gone by and I have finally made a few cards.  I used the same layout for all three cards but mixed up the colors – the Picadilly line of paper really has a lot of variety.  I struggled with the layout – I picked out the paper and copics – colored the flowers and then let the project sit on my work table for several weeks.  Sometimes it helps just to think about a project for a while – today I finally got an idea and worked through it!
