Blissful Love

Blissful Love - It seems that every time I need a fairy tale image, this one by Michelle Perkett always pops into my head. These two fairies dancing in the moonlight is my idea of Happily Ever After. The challenge this week at Michelle Perkett's Studio is fairy tales. I hope that you will all join us and color up one of Michelle's images that you think is Happily Ever After.

DP is from the dollar spot in Target last year. Enchanted Love is colored with Copic's. Sentiment is Hot off the Press. I used a new glue that I bought at the stamping convention that I attended Saturday. The glue is brushed on and then I added the fine glitter to the wings and the little hearts on the sentiment. I used stickles on the heart wings and the girl fairies hem. I wanted to use both techniques for glitter and glue to see the difference. As you can see; the Stickles is much thicker and tends to cover more of the coloring. Now that it is totally dry, I rubbed the brushed on glitter quite hard and the glitter did not rub off.
