‘Blingtastic’

>> Tuesday, 20 October 2009

I think this is probably the most sparkly card I have ever made!  I went to Bluewater shopping on Sunday and John Lewis have the most gorgeous Christmas decorations in pale green, pale blue and silver.  I knew straight away I wanted to make a Christmas card using these colours and I found some glitter card in my stash which fitted the bill perfectly.

I’ve used a lovely sketch from this weeks ICS challenge for this card.  My Bildmalarna image is coloured with Tombow pens and distress inks and is mounted on silver mirri card.  The sentiment is from Penny Black and the snowflakes are a mixture of Sizzix dies and punches.

I’m also going to enter this card in these challenges:

Secret Crafter: Dig Deep (I bought this stamp last year but this is the first time I’ve used it)

Stamp Something: Bling
