I'm making my debut tonight so be gentle with me lol! Teresa asked me over the weekend if I'd like to join their Design Team and I'm very flattered so here I am!
I've chosen September Rhythm which was the first one that caught my eye when I saw it on a blog and led me to checking out the sweet pea site who pointed me to the Crafts and Me site where I could get hold of them!
I've coloured her with promarkers and used sakura stardust pens as sparkly highlights. You can use a clear sakura stardust pen to draw in highlights and if you dont want to see solid lines and a more subtle glitter then simply colour some on an area like the tail fin and quickly spread it with your finger, this gives a nice subtle coverage of glitter which suits these stamps well.
The background is painted with twinkling H2o's using a more concentrated mix around the design and a more watery one for the outside so you only use one colour. Flowers are prima wildflowers with others from stash.
Have to tell you that when I was doing the clear sparkly highlights with the sakura stardust I couldnt get the glitter to come out so I did my usual banging of the pen, shaking it wildly in the air and sucking it to no avail, the clear ink was coming through but not the glitter until I realised I was actually using the sakura GLAZE pen in clear *doh*
