Homemade Glitter Designer Paper!

Do you drool over the glittery designer paper at your local stamp store?! I always do...and can't justify buying it very often. Well...I've been playing with the Figgy Pudding 6x6 pack and decided to try making my own! I used a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen and Art Institute's Ultrafine Pearlescent glitter #189.Pearl. It turned out great....not sure if you can see it on the photo....but it's very nice looking in real life. Woo Hoo!! I also glittered some of the snowflakes on the piece behind the *h.* The fibers are from the Figgy Pudding fiber pack as well as the monogram.
Warm Wishes is stamped on some glimmery paper for a nice icy effect IRL. Not sure I'm so keen on the card....but I sure am keen on the glitter designer paper!

I`m certainly keen on the card; it`s stunning and so original. LOVE your technique: sheer genius! I made some shimmer spray with pearl-ex, but I bet yours has more oomph & stays on better. I`ll have to get one of those sakura pens! :0) Mel (SBS2-too)
