Sparkling Bride

Welcome!

There is a new challenge at Crafting By Designs with the theme: Winter, Glitter, Sparkles

Our generous sponsor is Sami Stamps.



I used Lily Bride to create my sparkly card. (I just love all those pretty brides!)
It is summer in South Africa, and quite hot at the moment, so I just went for the sparkle!
Brides always sparkle, come winter or summer!

The bride was coloured with pencils, cut and layered on sparkle card and fixed to the card. I then used some glue to add lines for the ultra fine Crystal glitter.

I'm adding my card to the Sami Stamps Challenge #33 - Add a little Sparkle

Joy!

Welcome!

And another ATC!
Not bad, since that is what I want to focus on some more!


The image I found here: Magic Moonlight

 I partly covered the ATC base with patterned paper. The image was layered on black & kraft. The writing was done with a white pastel pencil. Some black & gold twine add a final touch.

I'm adding my ATC to the following challenge:

Sparkly Child

Welcome!

Another ATC!

I found this lovely image here: Magic Moonlight


The ATC base was covered with scrapbook paper with a little sparkle. I cut 2 pieces of paper from my stash in similar colours, stamped some dots with Versamagic Turquoise Gem and Hero Arts Tiny Jubilee Dots. Tiny punched flowers and Waterfall Stickles add the final touches.

Make it Sparkle

Welcome!

The new year has started and many ideas have been running through my head. I had the idea of creating more ATC's and doing all kinds of creative stuff. Well, at least I've started with the ATC's

At Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge blog there is always something to inspire.
In fact, one can actually peek at upcoming challenges and be ready, so hopefully I will be.

The challenge this week is 'Make it sparkle'. Well, that is quite straightforward, add some glitter and bling, and it sparkles...but, I wanted to think a bit further. What else sparkles? Eyes? Eyes seeing beautiful things or flowers or something special.

That is what my ATC is all about:


The ATC was started with a cut base card. I cut the 'eyes behind the veil' from an advert leaflet and covered the whole base. Then I added some stamping with a tiny doily stamp and Starlite Black Brilliance & Versamagic Cloud White. The ring was cut from another leaflet, but it didn't sparkle enough, so I added 3D glue and Crystal Ultrafine glitter. I punched some flowers from soft rose paper and added some glitter and rhinestones after sticking them down.  

I'm adding my ATC to the following challenge

Get Ready!

Welcome!

It's a new challenge at Crafting By Designs!

Our theme: Get Ready For Christmas.

My card using the beautiful Elaine Cox Christmas bird from Sweet Pea Stamps:


I used pencils to colour the image and added some glitter with a gelly roll.

Sadly, Sweet Pea Stamps closed, so in a way this is a great way to say thanks for all the pretty images through the years!

Come and join the challenge!
