One of Clare's favorite glitter techniques is a simple way to add sparkle strips.  It is made with double sided sticky tape and looks great on a card or a page.  Clare got this look by just cutting the double sided sticky tape and notching one end.  She removed one red side and adhered the tape to the project.  She then removed the final side of the red tape protector and pored on the Art Glitter.  Clare stamped  her shopping girl and colored her with Tombow Markers, using the Blending Mister and a small water color brush.  One of Clare's favorite things to do with the Tombow markers is to distress her paper edges!  It is difficult for to find distressing inks in brighter colors.  So, Clare' often runs the markers along the edge of the paper, using the paint brush side of the Tombow Marker and then blending it with the Blending Mister and a small water color brush.  Clare used this technique to get the yellow edge on the plaid paper stripe behind the doily.  And this is also a great way to repeat the color in your stamped image.
