True story!! I am addicted to outline stickers. I have a stack at least 5 inches high and this is the first project I have made since I started collecting them so long ago. I bought them specifically to create my own glitter paper and to shade with Copics.

A few notes - Copics nibs can be ruined by glitter so I lay (dab) on the color with the side of the brush tip rather than coloring the nornal way. I also keep a colorless blender just for glitter. The blender really does blend as well as erase when used with glitter.

I also collect embossing folders. These three had never been used before for projects. Let's not even talk about how long I have been collecting dies and just started using them. I hoard... 

These elements came together like butter! The more intense part was coloring and shading. I just love these ladies! It's rare but I only got one of these sheets. I try to get at least 2 because mistakes do happen...
