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.
