Flip over pattern with chain, eye mask and crown. Lightly trace along lines on pattern with chalk. Position pattern, chalk side down, at neckline then press into place. Holding with one hand, run a finger over lines transferring chalked pattern to fabric. Continue to add chain pattern to extend to shoulder of T-shirt. Remove pattern.
Using same method, transfer triangles and fleur de lis patterns to shirt where shown.
Squeeze a puddle of Glitter Bond onto foil. Use paintbrush to apply an even coat into center triangle. Immediately pour on Purple glitter. Use finger to lightly press glitter into adhesive. Repeat step with fleur de lis. Pounce excess glitter onto scratch paper then pour back into bottle to be reused another time.
Paint Glitter Bond into crown then pour on Emerald glitter. Add glue to center third of mask and glitter. Pounce off excess glitter.
Test flow of Scribbles paint on paper towel using an even pressure on bottle. Add dots along second chain from neckline then sprinkle on Purple glitter. Let dry about 30 minutes then carefully pour off excess glitter – the paint may still be wet so be careful.
Add Silver glitter dots along last chain, add Green glitter, let dry then remove. Add Scribbles Silver Glitter dots along first chain and fill in first triangle.
Add Scribbles Gold Glitter dots to third chain, one side on mask and a triangle. Use purple Shiny to fill in remainder of mask and detail on crown. Let dry.
