Glitter bomb!

Hello all!
Back with my second post for the day and this one's for the current challenge over at TOFF - (The Octopode Factory Friday challenge) which is all about Glitter.
                 Now I don't use a lot of glitter in my crafting as it has a tendency to end up everywhere but where I want it to but I decided to fling caution to the winds and just glitter bomb the life out of this!  I coloured the Tinkerbell digi with my Copics and then glittered her hair - I simply painted on a thin layer of glue and dumped a truckload of glitter on!  When the glue had dried, I drew over the defining lines with my Faber Castell Pitt big brush marker - those things are amazing!  They'll draw over glitter, paint, gesso, ink and you can stamp with them too - no. I'm not being paid by Faber Castell to say this but if they ever want to send something my way, I'm right here.........
     The background also has some glitter added in various glue stamped shapes but you can't see it that well in the photos.  The brick wall was done with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and some Distress Ink swiping! The text page was attacked with Distress Stain  - 'bundled sage', the superstar sentiment is a dollar stamp from Michaels and the other sentiment was printed, cut and inked for definition.  I do so enjoy using The Octopode Factory images as they give you so much scope for whimsical, funny art - just doing it because you enjoy it :)


She's a Tinkerbell with attitude or artitude - whatever takes your fancy!
I would like to enter this into the challenges at - 


Thanks for popping in - have a fab Friday and a wonderful weekend!
                    I'm going to be MIA for about a week but will endeavour to catch up with commenting on your blogs as soon as possible :)

I agree glitter is messy, but some times you just have to pull it out and play. LOL The green is really eyecatching. Great job Dawn!
