Glistening Grapes with a challenge

Good morning! It's good to be back here for a quick post. I'm still helping my family come back to health from last week, so it's nice to say I had some time to play with a few glistening products.

I decided to pull out some new Stampendous micro glitter and have some fun with this month's challenge.

I've got some step photos to see how I applied the glitter to the grape image.
Supplies listed below.
Use Sakura Quickie Glue Pen to create glistening highlights.

Add glitter one at a time and dry in between layers.

Another glitter...

Another glitter...
Some clear glitter around the edges of the grapes.

Three glue dots.

And some more glitter... just a little bit more.

  1. Beautiful card and such a lovely technique! And I really love this Stamp. I must ink it up soon! :)

  2. This is so cool, Janelle! Important to note, too, that those Micro Glitters really come in the LARGE jars! You get more than enough to do lots of these types of cards! Just gorgeous!
