Sparkle Like Barbie - Copics on Glitter

Hey there,

Barbie dolls came out the year I turned twelve years old (I know, I'm blessed to be very mature) and it was a delightful surprise that Santa brought me one for Christmas when I didn't even know who she was.  I thought she was absolutely fabulous with her dresses, shoes, purses and numerous tiny accessories to match.  She even had jeans and pajamas, for Pete's sake! My mom and all the ladies on the block were so enamored with her that I hardly got to hold her that day.  And the rest is history.  Barbies went on to be the most stylish and popular ladies ever. My two little girls had a collection of over 70 of them (some Kens, of course) each having a name, an occupation and a life to be admired.  Their dream house, cars and RV rivaled any I ever owned. I used to take my first Barbie down from my closet, all wrapped in her special case, and my youngest daughter would reverently stroke her hair with such admiration and wonderment.  I think my original Barbie is worth a ton now, but I will never sell her!

This weeks Free For All Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers was to celebrate Barbie's birthday by making a card showcasing an image with her in mind  I colored this beautiful Elizabeth Crafts peel off sticker image with copics because I think she definitely has luxurious Barbie hair.  Copic coloring on glitter is so fun and very forgiving.  The result is sparkliscious. Here's a link to how it's done.

Here's what I used:
  1.  Elizabeth Craft Peel off Sticker
  2.  Copic Markers
  3. Spellbinders oval die
  4. Bow die 
  5. Designer background paper
  6. Pop dots
  7. Tombow monoglue

  1. I really enjoyed reading your post. My sister started the Barbie collection in our home - two of the four of us sisters were interested. And over the years, I collected so many clothes and accessories and friends (Midge, Tuti, etc.). Your card is so fun. The image looks very Barbie-esque. The Copics over the sparkle looks fantastic. Thank you for this very fun and nostalgic post and for sharing with us at Time Out Challenges.
