The Craft Barn Fortnightly Challenge - Bling It Up

I'm really not a bling and glitter sort of person, so the fortnightly challenge on the Craft Barn blog to use "super sparkly, shiny, glitzy bits" in colours of purple, turquoise and green was indeed a challenge.

I started by stamping snowflakes with Versamark on a square piece of card and embossed them with clear powder. I then sponged Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks over the card. Sandwiching the card between two pieces of copier paper I ironed over them to melt and remove the embossing powder to leave the white snowflakes. The tree was then stamped and embossed with a glittery embossing power and coloured rhinestones glued onto the branches. The square was then matted onto a piece of pale mauve card. A sentiment was stamped onto card that had also been sponged with the same Distress Inks and die cut and attached to complete another Christmas card. That makes a grand total of two!

The Peacock Feather Distress Ink on the background of my card has registered as blue in my photo but it is turquoise in real life and I haven't really been able to capture any of the sparkle. 😞

Lovely card. Sad but true- the blingy sparkly bits are practically impossible to photograph. Thanks for persevering and joining the Craft Barn Challenge xx
