Die Cuts R Us Store Product Spotlight...

Set A: Lavender, Pink, Red, Orange, Lemon, Melon, Olive, Turquoise, Sky Blue, Black, Gold and Silver

From the makers of COPIC, atyou Spica glitter markers/pens come in 24 transparent sparkly colors that are split up into 2 sets. These markers contain a pigment based, non-toxic and acid-free ink. It is archival and has a non-clogging tip.

These pens are perfect for adding any amount of sparkle and shine to your craft projects, layouts and cards.

One of the best features about these pens, is the almost fine point tip that allows you to color and get into the smallest of detailed spaces without having to have a base color.

In my sample using The Greeting Farm Birthday Anya, Anya's entire outfit is colored using colors from both sets: Chocolate, Blossom, Gold and Pink. The coloring and sparkle give her outfit the perfect shine to fancy up your card or project.

;) Here are some tips from my own personal experience from coloring with one of my favorite mediums...
When coloring with your atyou Spica glitter markers...
- You do not need a base color.
- You don't want to over-color in the same spot! It will fuzz up your paper/image.
- I recommend that you either use a dabbing or dotting method when coloring small areas... and line-coloring for larger areas, in order to prevent fuzzing and/or tearing your paper/image.

The Copic atyou Spica Glitter Marker Sets are on sale now ($24.99)!!! So, hurry now and purchase your new set from the Die Cuts R Us Store!!!
