You Are A Fabulous Work of Art--Sparkle and Shine Challenge

October 1, 2015

It's time for a new Challenge at Sparkle and Shine!  We can't wait to see what you create using the inspiration photo!  

For this challenge we are sponsored by the amazing Pretty Pink Posh! Her shop contains tons of beautiful sequins all colors and sizes along with amazing dies to help you create! The winner of our challenge will received a $25 gift card to her store!

When I looked at the inspiration photo, the first thing that caught my eye was all the beautiful colors!  I knew just what I wanted to do.  I started my card with a white base.  I cut a piece of watercolor paper with my SugarPea Designs-Zig Zag Rectangle Dies.  The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! set, "Work of Art" and was stamped with black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then, I used lots of different Tim Holtz Distress Inks (listed below) for my project.  The stencil is called "Splatters" from Tim Holtz.  I just moved it around and used my blending tool to add all the splatters. 

I added sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for lots of sparkle and shine! 

Hope you are able to join us in this challenge. Check out all of the beautiful cards from the design team on the blog here!
