Lawnscaping Challenge #106: try a new technique...or three....

Lawnscaping Challenge #106: try a new technique...sounds simple wasn't lol.
I saw Laurel's wonderful video about coloring glitter with markers... Oh am doing that!
I took a shortcut and used glitter paper onto which I stamped my gleeful garden.
that worked!
Started coloring, and that also worked except the colors run, I think in between the glitter particles or something, you can see that well with the dots on glitterpaper  I meant to use as a backdrop ...discarted this idea.
Also the detail in p.e. the snail got lost and redrawing them wasn't a big success.
I think you need to use basic shapes...

This is my Lawn Fawn collection, Not at all big or comprehensive, so coming up with something new every challenge, is a challenge in itself, but that makes me more creative I guess....or I hope lol. 

I recently got some Wow embossing powder with glitter, maybe I can recreate the glitter images this way? the blue looked cool, the pink one not so much, I colored the monsters in with the versamarker.  Oh and I don;t know how this happened, but my heat gun blew all the embossing powder all over my desk and lap in a moment of, well I can honestly say, insanity...not thinking things trough...not lol...

So back to Youtube for more ideas, and who has more techniques than the awesome Jennifer McGuire and her pop up stamping inspired me to make the purple card.
Not the same but I took some of the elements for my card. Didn´t want to do the dimension as my background wasn´t very pronounced. I used Wow silver pearl embossing powder for that instead of tone on tone inks.
One tip a whole big background stamp works best as it´s very hard to line this up 3 times the same...just a note if you want to try this.
Lawn Fawn´s scripty love and the background is  from sharp backdrops. I thought the arrows would go well with the hearts , like Cupid's arrows or something...
The hearts are from Memory box but they looks somewhat like a die Lawn Fawn has, I don´t have it.
