Thought I would play along with a couple challenges today - Glitz Designs and Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenges.
Both challenges this week involve glitter. I'm generally not a huge glitter fan....it's just generally messy and I have enough mess that I don't really need more. But then I thought why not use my Wink of Stella pen? Happily that's exactly what the ladies at Simon Says Stamp are showcasing this week. I love it when a plan comes together!
I used the Sunshine in My Soul papers. I have to say this is one of my favorite Glitz releases from last year, and I think the most underated. It was a mid-season release last year so didn't seem to get as much play as the others, but it is just so pretty.
I really wanted to showcase this sunburst pattern pattern paper. If you look closely at it you can see some bubbles/circle bokeh like pattern on the paper. I used the Wink of Stella pen to go over those circles. Another mostly solid blue paper was used as the base/mat, and then I die cut the alphas in yet another gold paper. The alphas were run through my 1 1/2" sticker maker. While they were still stuck to the plastic, I added glitter to them with the Wink of Stella. Then I adhered them to the front panel.
Some dimensional adhesive was used to attach the front panel to the card base and then some clear and gold sequins were added for a little extra pop. I really like how they play with the glittered bokeh circles.
It rained all day yesterday, so I'm hoping that the sun really does come out today!
