Happy New Year everyone! Isn’t it mad that it is 2018 already??? It seems no time since we were all worrying about the year 2000…
Lin is hosting our first challenge of 2018, Bling’s The Thing. We would like to see lots of bling, ie, glitter, gems, or anything else that’s sparkly.
As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the Bling’s The Thing theme.
For 2018 we have relaxed our rules a little and no longer have a limit of 15 entries into our challenge, but we still require a permanent link to our challenge post in your post – please don’t forget to do this, as if you don’t your entry won’t be considered.
I used a My Craft Studio cd to create these lovelies having a good old gossip – originally they were both facing the same way, but I flipped the one in blue using Craft Artist Professional.
The base card is a 7 x 5 card, and onto that base I layered a mat of shiny art deco paper I had in my stash. I printed out two copies of the topper sized to fit, and layered one copy onto the card. I cut the second copy down to show the smaller topper only, and layered that onto some irridescent mirri card. I attached that topper onto the base topper using foam pads to raise it slightly.
In the corners I used some self adhesive gems to add a bit of bling, and then for sparkle, I used a quicky glue pen to put some dots all over both dresses, and the jewellery. I then sprinkled glamour dust over it all. Sadly, the glitter hasn’t shown up that well in the photograph… #sad.
I haven’t put a specific sentiment on this one – but there is room to add a happy birthday or best wishes at the bottom or top. I’ll decide what it should be when I want to use it, as that gives me some versatility.
Good luck with the challenge this time…!
