Let Your Light Shine!

Please click here to enjoy the Whimsy Stamps Digi-Blog Hop

What a fun project! This is my first project using one of Jennifer Nilsson's images. I had a great time choosing papers and colors to use on this little cutie! Jennifer has some wonderful images now available at Sweet Pea Stamps! You will certainly want to check them out! I'm sorry I can't give you better direction on how I made the glittery background paper....it was years ago. All I can recall is that I used glittery acrylic paint. I love how this image worked so well with the Smooch and Glossy Accent products! Who doesn't enjoy some sparkle?
