Sweet Stamps- Glitter

It's challenge time at Sweet Stamps , and we are using glitter this week.
 The oval panel the wreath is stamped on uses Microfine glitter, and I also used Christmas Red Stickles.

 For the oval panel, I took 2" Scor Tape and applied it to white cardstock- then I put the cardstock and the die through the die cutting machine. Peel off the shiny top of the Scor Tape exposing the sticky top, and apply Microfine glitter. I use my finger to burnish it well. Next, I stamp and color with Copic markers. So easy and a fun shimmery look!  (the only hard part is taking a picture of the shimmer!).

 I used Copics G24, G28 then dabbed on some YG25. For the bow, I used R24 and R37. I added highlights around the image and dotted it on the oval with W1 and W3.
