Are you ready for a bit of sparkle? This week’s TSG challenge, TSG 114, is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the week: Ann. She is challenging us to add glitter, glitz and bling! Well, you just know that this challenge fits me to a T! :)
I’ve been drooling over this mushroom image from The Fairy Best stamp set since I first saw it! Such a cute community of mushroom houses and the perfect opportunity to give oodles of Copic markers a workout.
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock, colored with Copic markers and cut with a Labels Nestabilties die. I used the Clouds Border die and Tumbled Glass Distress ink to sponge the cloudy sky. To finish I added Glossy Accents to the mushroom spots and dusted with Crystal Fine Glitter. I also added dots of White Opal Liquid Pearls to the edges of the main image.
So what do you think? Is that cloudy background fabulous or what? I have the feeling that this might be a go to technique for future cards!! :)
