Glittery Koi Pond

     Here is a little ATC made using the Lotus Garden stamp set and the glittery acetate technique that GlitteryKatie posted as a tutorial recently.  I just love glitter and this technique shows it off beautifully, but be prepared for a glittery mess.  I glittered myself, the dogs, the desk, my laundry and my husbands truck.  Don't ask me how, I am just talented that way.  
      The ATC was rather simple.  The fish were stamped on the acetate, glittered and cut out. I also added black gems for their eyes over the top of the acetate. They were then mounted onto a piece of design paper that I had embossed with a glitter embossing powder using a kanji stamp and matted with gold wrapping paper.  The entire ATC was then mounted onto cardstock.  


  1. Fabulous!!! Glad you had fun!!!

  2. Whoa! They look like they are under water! Gorgeous katie!!!

  3. You can't go wrong with glitter! Even if it is the herpies of craft supplies! I love the koi stamps! They are so pretty. I need to get me some to add to my oriental stamp collection!

  4. I read that tutorial and I love how it looks!
