Sparkle Stamping

Hello! I had lots of fun playing with stamps today. :) I tried out a new technique, and I just love how it turned out! It's really easy to do {I promise}. I swiped 3 lines of distress inks onto my craft sheet. First picked raspberry... Then worn lipstick under that, and then picked raspberry again. I then sprayed my "palette" with perfect pearls and water in a mini mister. This becomes your "ink pad". Then I just wiggled my Lotus Background stamp around a little in it to blend the colors. And then stamp, and voila...you have stamped with sparkle! Oh how I adore perfect pearls! I really wish the photos did the sparkly goodness justice ;) If you look closely, you can see it here...
It is really cool in real life. I stamped the Heart Owls from Hero Arts twice so I could paper piece them. Aren't they sweet?! I used the Friend Definition background stamp for the strip behind the owls. And the adorable sentiment is from the You're A Hoot set from PinkByDesign.   

I hope you've had a fabulous weekend! I'm so happy it's awesome TV night! I ♥ Sunday night! Big Brother, True Blood, Breaking Bad, and Weeds! Yeah! :) 

♥ Nikki ♥
