Can you see it?

Hello bloworld

How amazing am I at the moment, regular blog posts - am astounding myself as well!  I'll run out of things to say - no wait, it's Sarah here so that'll never happen!

So this post is all about the new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and this time we'd like to see your Glittery / Shiney / Blingy creations please!

Our sponsor for this month is the wonderful place that is Joanna Sheen and a £10 voucher is up for grabs.  Can you guess I've shopped there more than once!

The sponsor for this challenge is Emerald Faeries and the prize is two digis.

The Design Team were lucky enough to be given images to work with - have to say this is the first time I've used one of these digis and loved it!  So easy to colour and so sweet and without further ado here is my card and the reason for the post title.

I added glitter to most of the spots on the backing paper and the faeries wings, but not sure you can spot it - so can you?  Oh and the flower is glittery: glitter - tick, now I come to think of it the grommet is shiny - tick, but no bling, oh well!  Two out of three ain't bad - hmmm wonder if that would make a good song lyric!

So front shot of card:

Detail shot of image:
 Trying to show the glitter:
I used:
Emeral Faeries image: Ashee, coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
Nestie for matting and layering.
Glamour dust on wings and 3d gloss on mushroom.
CC Designs die for border - teardrop
Flower, patterned paper and grommet from my stash (Using It Up!)

So why not pop over to the challenge and join in, we'd love to see you!  Oh and there is a Design Team call going on at the mo as well - go on give it a go, you could get to work with a bunch of lovely creative ladies and moi!


A challenge, or two:

Sketch N Stash - challenge 78 - Michelle's Sketch

Flutter By Wednesday's - #185 - bright colours - I know there is a lot of pastel, but hopefully the mushroom and flower qualify?  Feel free to remove if not.

Stampin' for the Weekend - Challenge 24 - out with the old - my 'olds' are the paper, flower and grommit
