The Mixed Media Card Challenge - Sparkle

Time for a new challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge, and this month it's all about Sparkle, with an optional element of Gems.

I started with a Gelli plate print which I'd made with purple, blue and green paints and a stencil, mask and bubblewrap.  I stamped the flower in Versafine Onyx Black, then stitched along the base.  The stitching wasn't great so I just pulled the threads around and glued them down.  A few blobs of Stickles on the flower heads, and if you look closely you can see three tiny AB gems.  I mounted the panel onto sanded and distressed Core'dinations card, then onto the card base.

Pop on over to the Mixed Media Card Challenge blog to see more fabulous inspiration from the design team, and join in.

  2. This is all shades of gorgeousness! I love the tiny twinkle of sparkle and the way you've distressed the cardstock for more visual interest.

  3. The texture is divine! Adore your image panel - especially the gold Stickles!

  4. I want to reach out and touch, Shirley ... so much yummy texture and shimmery shine! Hugs, Anita :)

  5. Everything about your card - from the images to the techniques - has me captivated! Work of art!
