and the theme I have chosen for the week is
Sparkle and Shine
I would like to see some glitter, gems, or gloss etc.
Don't forget - you don't have to follow both the sketch and the theme unless you want to, one or the other will do just fine.
I chose this theme to challenge myself as much as everyone else because, as anyone who knows me will be aware, I rarely use glitter on my cards. This is the card I have made
Fairy Dance has been coloured with a combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers, I also coloured some white Seam Binding to match. I have used Ice Stickles on her wings, around the outside of the image and on the butterfly embellishments. This is the first time I have ever used stickles and I love them - will now have to buy some more! There are also some small gems on the butterflies and on her crown that has also had some gloss added.
This is the inside of my card that has been decorated to match the front
