Thanks A Bunch--Sparkle & Shine Challenge

November 1, 2015

I can not believe it is November 1st!!!!  This year has flown by!  I sure wish I could make time slow down.  SO much to do, so little time!

 It's time for a new challenge at Sparkle & Shine!  We are excited you are here and hope that are inspired! For this challenge, please use the photo inspiration below when creating your projects. You can create in any way that you like as long as we can see the inspiration in your design. 

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 receive a $25 gift card to her store!

I had such a great time creating this   I love, love, love the jewel tone colors.  First, I used watercolor paper and created the first layer using a blending tool and Twisted Citron (Tim Holtz) Distress ink.  The next layer was created using Wilted Violet Distress Ink and then embossed it using the Taylored Expressions-Weathered Embossing Folder. The sentiment is stamped using Altenew Label Love stamp set and Momento Black ink.  

I created the flowers by coloring sheets of watercolor paper with the different Distress inks.  (Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, Blueprint Sketch and Twisted Citron)  I stamped the flowers with Momento black ink using the WPLUS9-Doddle Buds set on these sheets that I created.  I used the WPLUS9-Doodle Buds Dies to cut out each flower and leaves.  Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins were added for sparkle.  Wink of Stella was added on the flowers for 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!
