Making it Monday on a Friday?? More glitter with Scor-Tape!

I will admit that I was on the fence about whether I wanted to get the new Delightful Doilies set from PTI - doilies not typically being "my thing" - until I saw what Erin Lincoln did with it, coloring the doily images with Copics, a-la-Spirograph style! That was it. (I'm pretty sure I heard my wallet whimper!) So since I got my order earlier this week with these delightful little beauties in it, I've been wanting to try out the technique!


After a couple of not-so-great attempts, I decided on a white base with black ink, and lots of shades of pink, yellow, green and aqua added to the mix. It was fun to figure out different patterns to color - I will definitely be using this again!

I think the fun, bright colors and patterns are just perfectly paired with glitter for the Make It Monday challenge. For my glitter and Scor-tape element, I added the 2 strips of Scor-tape, and then peeled the backing away in stages, cutting diagonally, to add different colors of glitter. To keep the bling theme going, I added gems from Creative Charms in the same colors. The sentiment from Make A Wish finishes off the card!


Thanks for looking!

Oh my goodness. I totally remember coloring those images when I was a kid. So relaxing to just sit and color. I REALLY love how you did this! And the multi-colored glitter strip is awesome! Did you tear off only small portions of the scor tape paper at a time?
