That's one sparkly fish alright!

This card was inspired by one that Cambria Turnbow did on her blog with the Fine Cosmo Stampin Glitter and "Flowers for You" designer paper. I had both of those at my Inspiration Station and wanted to try my hand at using the new glitter (which I promptly got all over my workspace -- note to self: do not use glitter in children's workshops...) so I thought to myself, "Self, what sparkles? Fish!" I promptly got out my retired "Fishy Friends" supercute stamp set and got to work. I definitely need to practice my glitter & glue technique, this isn't fully filled. After I sponged my shimmery white cardstock with Tempting Turquoise & Certainly Celery, I stamped my fish with Staz-On Black and dotted my 2-Way Glue, adding glitter in 3 separate sessions to avoid mixing too much of it together. I sprayed the image lightly with some glossy acrylic sealer to avoid getting *more* glitter everywhere. I think this would make a wonderful good luck-type of card to someone before a big event (school play, prom, graduation, etc.).
