House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

Glitter & Glitz

Are you ready for your Monday Morning Kick Start? I am! Especially since it's all about Glitter!! I LOVE those sparkles. I actually have a hard time NOT putting glitter all over my projects. I have tons of the stuff - glitter, glitter glue, embossing glitter, glitter pens, glitter paper etc. etc. etc. :) Sooooo......are you ready to create with some of your glitter? Allllllrighty then...lets stamp!

We would love to see your work glitzed up to the max! As always...anything goes as long as you include at least 1 House Mouse or Friends image on your project. For all the challenge details and to see the Glitter & Glitz creations by the Design Team - click HERE.

This HM stamp is called Fashion Statement - and features Amanda. A perfect image for glitter & glitz! All those ornaments were colored with red pencil & then embossed with Red Tinsel Embossing Powder. I also embossed a few strips on the background paper. The tops of the ornaments are colored with a Silver Glitter Pen. Image layer is popped up on dimensionals.The last bit of glitz added is the wonderful ribbon from A Muse. That ribbon is awesome!

Speaking of A Muse...I want to share something with you. I stamped my HM image with a dye ink pad from A Muse Art Stamps. This ink is super super great!! Look at how all the details show on my stamped image! And guess what...I only stamped this ONE TIME!! Can you believe it!! It came out perfect! A Muse Dye Ink pads are fast-drying -- and -- they work GREAT with alcohol markers. Yep...that means COPIC & Prismacolor! Git-er-done!!!!! you can works perfect with my colored pencils & gamsol too :)
