Mixing It Up - Painting With Glitter

Hey all!  Lisa here and today I'm playing with painting with glitter!  It's a technique that Heidi from Miss Ink introduced me to and I've been playing with it this month.  I'm not sure if I've used it as it was intended, but I sure have been having a lot of fun! Today I've used it lots to add some sparkle and shimmer to my icy creation using the Say Cheese and Calm and Bright stamp sets along with the Diamond Fade Stencil 3!
