Glitter Border

Hey everyone. I am so sorry for the delay this should have been posted this morning. A busy bee I have been. I have recently started growing and well hiding my pregnancy is no longer working for me and I had one of those wonderful breakdown moments and spent the weekend trying to find clothes that fit. 

Anyway I am here to show you a fun way to make a stain. I really thought about painting my edges just like inking an edge. So I filtered through and thought mister technique but in a little dish. Well I used a little lid and put some water in it. Then I added some paint until it was a good consistency that I wanted to get the paper to absorb. Then I dipped the edges of my paper and it worked perfectly.

I used a stamp from Sparkle n Sprinkle from the Flamingo Christmas set. He was colored with copics. The paper used was come of that wonderful sand it tear it emboss it co'ordinations line. I don't know the name of the paper as it was some scrap that had been scratched on. The ribbon is from last year that I got from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I also used some paper from Echo Park Christmas pad as well.

Here you can see the sparkle in the hat, the lights and the border. 

I also painted part of the santa hat that is normally suppose to be white and the bulbs with the same color used on my stained edges.

The colors I used is
