Coloring on Glitter

Just a reminder the Crafty Capers Hero Arts 2012 Debut party is tomorrow! The party lasts all day however we will have a $2.00 card make and take tomorrow between 10:30 - 2:00 if you would like to participate please bring your adhesive and scissors with you. We will also have the new 2012 Hero Arts catalogue for you to view, new stamps and tasty treats! To make the party even better ALL Hero Arts products will be on sale 15% off tomorrow only! Whoo Hoo. For a sneak peak of some of the new stamps Hero Arts is having a blog hop tonight. I've just finished all the hopping and am feeling a bit cross eyed but there lots of great cards done with the new stamps!
My card tonight has nothing to do with Hero Arts but thought I would post it anyway. :) It's fairly simple but I am really happy with how it turned out. I began with a Peel Off sticker (black) which I put on a piece of Be Creative tape along with some Glitter Ritz Warm Highlight glitter then I colored on top of the glitter with my Sakura Glaze pens. I waited to make sure the Glaze pens had dried before I cut out the dove image. I learned that hard way that Glaze pens take a few minutes to dry on glitter when I smudged the red holly berries on another dove and ended up having to color the entire dove pink to correct my mistake! Everyone who saw it assured me no one would notice the smudge however I have never seen a pink dove in my life so that might be a bit of a giveaway or people will just assume I was drunk while coloring! I matted my doves with Kaisercraft designer paper "silly season". I embellished the designer paper with some of the black dots and border from the sheet of dove stickers. I added Glossy Accents to the holly part of the dove for some extra interest.
Thanks for stopping by and perhaps see some of you tomorrow at the party!
