Here's MY tutorial:
ADDING GLITTER IN DETAILED AREAS


I LOVE all things sparkly and bright and adding glitter is a fabulous way to get just that effect!!  But... did you know about the "Quickie Glue Pen"???? Yep.. that's what it's called.. no way I could make THAT up! LOL  With this pen... YOU control WHERE the glue and glitter go.  Even in the smallest or thinnest areas.  Let me show you how I did this card.


First... you'll want to make sure you color your image completely.  On my example I DID use colored glitter but.. I didn't want my entire image covered, so coloring is important.  Plus, if you miss an area with the glitter, you won't notice it at much if the image is colored.

Next I cut out my image because I wanted to mount on her a colored/DT papered background.


Now the Glue Pen.  It's just like an ink pen so using it is very easy.  You could easily write a name with this and glitter it as well.  Here's what the pen looks like.














You'll only "write" where you want the image to be glittered.  I started with her "shell top" and added a bit to her "hips" area.  Then... I went to just the areas of her tail I wanted to highlight.



If you look closely you can see the blue glue along the black lines of the area on her tail I used it on already.

Next, lay a heavy coat of glitter so as not to miss any glued areas.

Shake off the excess and continue through with the others areas you want glittered.  As you can see... the glitter/glue didn't cover much of my coloring which is what I wanted.  Just a bit of sparkle and a bit of color to accent the color already there.


And for a bit of added effect... I added a few lines to my background (to give it a bit of a glimmered water effect) by simply drawing a few lines here.
And here it is... all finished and glittered in only the spaces I want.


Hope you enjoyed the tutorial!  Enjoy the rest of the hop and remember to add your comments and add the links over at the Outlawz 2000th member area.

      Added note:  HERE is a link to get your Quickie Glue Pen.  :-)

Thanks for stopping by!!! *HUGS*

I feel like i hit the mother load of tuts! This is just remarkable and so easy to do now that I've read it and seen the results. Ah that beautiful card is truly awesome.

I am from Cuba City WI and would love to have you visit my blog someday too.

ibalady said...

that glue pen looks like it beats a glitter pen by a mile. generally a glitter pen is not as smooth or even in coloring as a marker would be and not as many color choices either . atleast in my experience. sounds like the best of both worlds, smooth even coverage from your copics and control of your glitter. great idea. thanks for sharing . One thing more loved the purple and lightly pink color scheme of your card

jennifer said...

I need one of those glue pins. I love your card, such beautiful colors. As always you and your work are inspirational. Thanks for the tutorial.

Edwina said...
