Hello readers! Welcome to new followers, please, pull up a chair, sit down, stay a while!
Today being the first of the month I need to draw your attention to the new challenge over at Visible Image. Gosh is this year rushing past or what? Seems like only yesterday that I was telling you about moving to Wales, and here I am, 2 months gone already and I still have boxes in my lounge to unpack. Just goes to show how 'vital' the contents are!
Oh yes, the NEW challenge. Well, I can't say that I was overly thrilled when my lovely 'boss' told me what the theme was. In fact, I probably did a visible shudder when she mentioned the word. For those that know me and my crafting style you will have realised that this challenge was indeed a proper challenge for me!
Here we are then, my inspirational piece for the 'Make it Sparkle' challenge. I think I did pretty well considering
'I DON'T DO GLITTER!!'
This is a proper glitter fest isn't it? It is such a shame that the photo is not showing just how glittery this card is! I used a lovely aurora borealis glitter glue over silver embossing powder. The moisture in the glitter glue 'pulled' some of the paint colour up from the Brusho background and gave a lovely additional colour to the glitter.
So stage by stage, I first painted a piece of card with rich purple and red tones of Brusho paint. Once this was dry I stamped the Bronte Script in red dye based ink all over. Using a clear embossing ink I then stamped the lovely INKognito heart and sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and heat set. I also did the same around the edges of the card.
OK, this wasn't sparkly enough so I added Cosmic Shimmer Aurora glitter glue to all the areas that were silver embossed.
When this had dried I noticed how the glue had been affected by the Brusho paint and was actually really impressed with the result. A glitter convert? I reserve judgement for the time being.
As I said, it is a shame my photographic skills can't cope with the immense amount of sparkle!
