Flower tutorial using Diamond Dust

Good Morning and happy Monday. I hope your weekend was enjoyable.
Today I would like to share with you how I use Distress Ink and Diamond Dust to get a really glitzy flower. First I choose the flowers I'd like to spice up, My Distress Ink and my H20 brush filled with water.
Dip the brush in the Distress Ink and I dab the tips to get the color you want. I needed a brighter color blue and here you see I started off with a pale blue flower and ended with exactly the color I was looking for.
Next I use a white glue, in this case I chose to use Scotch adhesive and dabbed the tips. Taking a spoon I sprinkled the Diamond Dust on the flower and let dry.Here is the results. Pretty glitzy right? You can add less glue and less Diamond Dust for less glitz I tend to get a little crazy. LOLHere is what I needed my glitzy flower for.
I hope you have enjoyed today's flower tutorial and that I have inspired you. Have a Glitzy day!
Hugs Bonnie :o)

OH, so THAT'S how you add the sugar crystal (looking) stuff to your flowers! Where do you buy that huge jar of glitter?? It's awesome sized glitter for tops of flowers. I've never seen that here :( Maybe I can buy it online??? :) But would love to know where you get it and if they have an online store. THANKS!
