Glisten and Sparkle

Hi everyone!
I was so thrilled to be asked by Nikki at Indigo Blu to do a post for the challenge. My background was a 'mop up' of DI Peacock Feathers that I had been using for another project. I then stamped this delightful image and embossed with 'bright gold' EP. I added some sparkly sequins, gold 'glitter glue', and using ds tape around the edges, I sprinkled on some holographic glitter and then mounted the panel on to a matching turquoise card
It is quite difficult to pick up the sparkle in a photograph, but it is very sparkly IRL

When this set arrived, with some others that I bought on a Facebook group, I was a bit overwhelmed as it is much larger than I thought. However I used the folder to do the embossing, and stamped the flower into the centre. I stamped it again on a scrap and coloured with my Promarkers. I cut the flower and 3 leaves from this one and shaped and layered them, although the scan does not show the effect very well. I used 3 favourite colours, R766, R555, and C426, and the added a touch of Y524 to shade the leaves.

Merry and Bright

Hi everyone, I hope you are all getting the Festive Season feeling. Time is beginning to run short, and I still have more things to make.
Today's card uses a very pretty piece of watercolour card that I coloured with Brusho's. I trimmed it to size and rounded the corners. The sentiment is embossed with an EP called Christmas colours - basically green with specks of red and gold. I have added a diecut snowflake and some bling and stars.

Cracking up!!

Hi Everyone,
I have been having a lovely messy time decorating this set of little milk bottles.
I started by coating with gesso, then a pretty teal/blue paint, followed by crackling medium, and then an off white paint over the top, which crackled quite nicely. I also overstamped with a crackle stamp by Indigo Blu. I then decorated by winding some sparkly blue thread around the neck, diecut leaves and flourish and a pretty flower.

I had this lovely 12x12 scrapbook paper, and decided to utilise it for a card. I cut out the image and laid it over a strip of vellum, some music tape, and some sparkly thread. The striped background is from the same sheet. This is my third entry for

Christmas tags

Hi everyone.

There are a number of Christmas challenges about at the moment, so I thought I would join in with this tag. I stamped with versamark and embossed with detail white ep. I added some sparkles to the centre of the larger snowflakes, and drew 3 lines with a white Sharpie paint pen.
