Truly Scrumptious - Swirls & Pearls

>> Wednesday, 16 February 2011

Hello, thanks for stopping by today. I hope your week is going well so far. Mine didn't get off to the best of starts as I lost the diamond from my engagement ring yesterday :( I'm not holding out much hope of finding it and the insurance will cover the cost of a new one but it can't really be replaced for sentimental reasons.

It's time for a new Truly Scrumptious challenge and this time we have a theme - "Swirls & Pearls".

I think this is my favourite Sarah Kay image and she has been coloured with aqua pens and distress inks. The papers I used are Prima and Melissa Frances. The swirl is cut from some double sided sticky stuff and then sprinkled on some Angel Dust art glitter. It was incredibly fiddly but it made the swirl quite subtle which I like.

Hope you can join in our challenge this week.

What a shame about your ring hun, it's awful when you lose something with such sentimental value.

Love your card, the image is really sweet and your subtle sparkly swirl is gorgeous.

Nicki, xx
