Last February while I was still designing for Sparkle N Sprinkle Design Team, we were given the opportunity to design some cards for CardMaker Magazine which featured different ways to use color. I had made 3 cards and only this one made publication. Here is the card in the gallery at Sparkle N Sprinkle.
This technique was based on a technique that Els from Elizabeth Craft Designs did, using her Peel- Offs, glitter and Copic markers. So I decided to see if it would work using stamps, glitter and Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks. So I started off using Early Espresso paper for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size.
