Clearly Inspired Challenge #36 -- Glitter

Happy Friday, my friends!  It's the 3rd Friday of the month, which means it's time for a new Clearly Inspired Challenge over at Clearly iStamp!  This challenge is a glitter challenge.  Use glitter on your project :D

I used a July release from Clear Dollar Stamps called Leaf Hellos.  Fall is here. . .even if it doesn't feel like it, haha.  I used both my Copics & airbrush, as well as my my watercolors for this project.  I'm also entering this card into the Friday Mashup Challenge, which is an Autumn challenge.  Go check out what their dt has done :)
 Stamps:  Leaf Hellos
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Paper:  MME Gertie, CDS Heavy Watercolor paper
Copics:  BG23 & E49 with airbrush
Tombows:  946-Wild Ginger & aquabrush
Accessories:  Labels 4 Nestabilities, CDS Elegant Accents Border Die, Worn Parchment Baker's Twine, dimensionals, pearl pen, Star Dust Stickles, black embossing powder

Here is a closer look:

I really like how this one turned out. . .maybe it's just how it makes me feel.  You know. . .ready for fall.  The colors help, and that leaf is divine.  Go check out the challenge and what the rest of the DT did to inspire you. I can't wait to see what you make!
