PTI Make It Monday #94: Detail Glitter Technique

This week Papertrey Ink has a tutorial and challenge hosted by Erin Lincoln. She has shown us how to get small precision glittered accents on our stamped images for just the right amount of sparkle.  If you would like to check it out for yourself, you can find all the info here.

This week I had a need for a sympathy card and Erin's tutorial was just what I needed to make a nice card extra special.  I used a Quickie Glue pen to outline the hearts in the center of the butterflies.  It created just a touch of sparkle to make the card look more elegant, but not so much sparkle to prevent the glitter from ruling over the design.  It was the perfect touch to add to my sympathy card.  Thanks, Erin!

On the inside of the card, I added some shine with a Gelly Roll clear pen.  I do declare that I like the results done with Erin's technique and the Prisma glitter so much better!

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Paper:  Stampers Select White, Melon Berry
Stamps:  Heart-2-Heart #10
