Glitter Ritz heart

Hi Everyone!  I hope you are all doing well out there in blogland.  Today I have a fun card to share with you. This is one of the projects we did in my Copic card class at Scrapp'n Savvy this month. The focus was on learning to use Elizabeth Crafts outline stickers and Glitter Ritz and then color them with Copics. The process is really easy and turns out looking amazing. The highlight glitter has no color but it does have warm or cool tones. Since it is clear you can color over it with your Copic markers- you do have to be careful not to linger too long in one spot as the alcohol in the markers can dissovle the adhesive holding the glitter. It actually takes very little ink to color. You can even blend. 
In this card I wanted to really showcase the heart/glitter so I kept the background simple- white on white with a script embossed on the mat. The scalloped rectangle is a spellbinders die. The red hearts under the ribbon are also from Elizabeth Crafts- they come in silver or gold and you can color right over them as well to customize them.

The outline stickers come in a wide variety. You can find a tutorial on how to use them on the Elizabeth Crafts Design blog. I did another card for my daughter's birthday that I will show you tomorrow...

Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing your comments!
