copic colored glitter + ellen hutson llc is turning 11!

Ellen Hutson LLC is celebrating 11 years and we are hopping today to celebrate!!! The theme of today's hop is "My Favorite Essentials by Ellen Set" and I think there are many of us who can agree that it is so hard to choose!!!

I decided to go with one of my most used and loved die sets, Wild Garden. And I also chose one of my favorite techniques, something I learned from Julie - coloring glitter with Copic markers!


This technique combines the Burnished Velvet glitter technique with Copic coloring...

  • Apply double-sided adhesive to cardstock, leaving liner paper on one side. I usually use Be Creative Tape but *gasp* I was out. Turns out Stick It works well too but has slightly more distressed edges.
  • Remove the liner paper without touching it because the oils in your fingers will keep the glitter from sticking. Apply black cardstock flowers from the Wild Garden set, to adhesive.
  • Apply glitter, shake off excess and burnish into adhesive with fingers to create sparkly, velvet texture.
  • Use brush nib on Copic marker to gently color. Take care not to over-saturate and wipe any stray glitter off marker before capping.

The sentiment is the Essentials by Ellen Many Thanks die, cut 3 times, layered and topped with Nuvo Black Ebony Crystal Drops.


The next stop on this happy hop is the fabulous Amy Tsuruta's blog, Tsuruta Designs. Have fun hopping and make sure to swing by the Classroom because there are prizes!

Hugs!
Carly
