So Bright You Gotta Wear Shades

Recently, I received some Happy Mail from Pretty Cute Stamps.  One of the sets was the Gingerbread House.  I was wondering how I could use it just by itself, without adding some Gingerbread people to the scene.  I decided it might look nice if it was painted in quite intense colours.  I am always looking to use something that I have that might be considered “collecting dust” in my stash.  My Wink of Stella Glitter pens fit this criteria.  Not the Clear one, of course;  I think I have painted my way through four of them so far, but all the other colours, that I thought I needed as well.

I actually like the result.  It is both intensely coloured and glittery.  These pens are not easy to paint with (other than the clear one), so for me, it is a triumph to have a “keeper” painted with them.

I covered the gumdrops in Pico Embellisher in Shimmer and the roof in Pico Embellisher Wedding Dress.  The whole card is one layer and easy to mail while still having a bit of a WOW factor.
