and today is the start of another weekly challenge at Crafts4eternity, unfortunately I didn't make it for last weeks challenge but I am back this week for our theme this week which is
"GLITTER & SPARKLE"
So as I said in my title, Get out your bling and pop along and join in, you can make anything you like as long as it fits in with our theme.
I stayed a bit safe, and at this time of the year, a bit predictable as I went with a Christmas theme but at least that's one card made.............
My only issue was getting my sparkle to sparkle in the photo and that unfortunately was impossible, so I have added a couple of close ups that hopefully give you a better idea..
I love snow and in particular snowflakes
Main image is Tim Holtz Blueprint snowflake heat embossed in white with rock candy glitter added, wooden snowflake painted with picket fence distress paint covered in rock candy glitter, silver snowflake charm painted with P.F. D.I. and then finally a Papermania shimmer dot.
Every stamped snowflake has a shimmer dot in the centre, even the tiny ones which hopefully you can see here, I told you there was bling. The background paper which is from lily of the valley Krafty Christmas pad was sprayed with Goosebumps clear texture spray, which you can justabout see,prior to me toning the kraft paper down with picket fence distress stain.
The addition of hessian and cheese cloth add more texture and hopefully add to the natural look and feel of this card.
The card has then been edged with picket fence distress paint and finally the sentiment is a Tim Holtz Christmas word band tied on with natural twine with a dash of picket fence paint.
So come on over and join us and if nothing else if only to display better photography skills than me.
You could be our randomly chosen winner, who this week will win their choice of 3 digi images from the Crafts4eternity collection.
