Sweet Stamps- Crosses

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is Crosses.

   I got out the Microfine Transparent glitter again. I am very fond of being able to stamp on it and to color the glitter with Copics.
  I applied the Microfine Transparent glitter to my prepared paper- and the stamped the  Stained Glass Frame first, then added the cross in the center of the frame.I colored with Copics, then trimmed the edge of the image- leaving a border to add a yellow Copic border. (HERE is my post with the instructions for preparing your paper).
  The Coordinations Cardstock was sanded where it was embossed- you can see the white core peeking through. I added a final accent using a shimmery Silver Lustre cardstock from Paper Temptress using the Cheery Lynn corner die.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:

Cross (small) HERE
