Sparkly Poinsettia

Do any of you get the newsletter every week from SCS?  If not sign up for it, they always have the best tutorials.  Today, the tutorial was on Sparkly Stained Glass, it wasn't hard at all, you just have glitter everywhere lol.  I stamped my image on the clear card stock that Flourishes sells (its very thick) and quickly heat set it, because I stamped with stazon.   You don't want the heat to get too close or else it can warp the cardstock.  I then put Diamond Glaze (you can use crystal effects) and sprinkled some glitter over the glaze.  It take a while for it to dry.  Once it dried I took a copic marker (any alcohol marker would work) and went over the front of the image just to shade and darken it up a bit.  You can skip this step if you want.  I cut it out and tried to get it on my card stock, but nothing seems to want to stick to glitter, so I put a brad through the center of my poinsettia and put a glue dot on the metal part and that worked perfectly.  This is really easy to do and gives your card the WOW effect.
