Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at 'For Fun' challenges, and the theme is:
ANYTHING THAT GLITTERS
So, you need to make your creation sparkle - use glitter, gems....anything that will make your project glitter!
Here's my creation
The image is called Mer-Mae by Some Odd Girl....isn't she cute! I coloured her with my Promarkers and added some stickles (waterfall.) I used my nesties to cut out the scalloped circle in blue glitter card, and found a BP with 'bubbles' on it too. I added a sentiment, some pale blue gems and a thin ribbon, and finished off with some hand-cut bubbles in white pearlescent card. I did have trouble getting anything to stick to the glitter card, and had to resort to Pinflair in the end, it was the only thing that worked!!!
After taking the photos my dear beloved 4 year old decided he rather liked this card, and pulled the mermaid off and creased her beyond repair!! So, as I wanted to send this to my friend (Happy Birthday for yesterday Claire!) I had to re-do the mermaid.....and here is the 2nd version:
I actually think I prefer the colours in version 2, so what began as a disaster turned out to be a blessing in disguise!!!
Here she is before I added a little stickles to her.
So, if you feel the need to bling it up and cheer yourself up, why not pop over to For Fun Challenges and join in this week. Don't forget to check out the fab DT creations while you're there, and pop onto their blogs to see how they came up with their ideas.
