Now that you’ve colored an image you might be wondering what to do with that white background. Today I’m going to show you a technique that not only gives your image a colorful background, but adds some bling to your finished project.
Gather up these supplies:
- Stamped image
- Sticky note(s)
- Anti-static pouch
- Glue pad refill bottle (or other liquid glue)
- Sponge Dauber
- Small spoon or scoop (optional)
Step One: Stamp the same image as your project onto a sticky note and trim around the outer edge. This will be a mask to protect your image through the next steps. Use an anti-static pouch or corn starch to prepare the surface for glue.
Note: Use multiple sticky notes if the image is larger.
Step Two: Hold the sponge dauber and add glue just like you would on an ink pad. Be sure to go all around the sponge surface and rub it in gently with the bottle tip.
Step Three: Start daubing glue around the image starting closest to your sticky note mask and daub farther apart as you move away from the mask.
Step Four: Adding glitter on this technique is delicate work, so use a small spoon, rolled paper or pinched between the fingers to sprinkle across the glue. Take off the sticky note mask and start sprinkling glitter around the outer lines of the image.
Step Five: Tap off excess glitter. If you are using multiple glitters, tap the excess glitter away from the rest of the glue.
Step Six: Add more glitter until you start seeing the shape of the dauber sponged glue.
It’s that easy! So now you can use this fun technique on your next project.
