Easter Joy

This week’s challenge on the Penny Black Blog is all about “glitter”.    

This is my sparkly interpretation---- 

The base of the card was created from Fern Green cardstock and stamped with Majestic Composition in Pear Tart Memento ink.  I love these large background stamps.  They add such a nice textural design.

Butterfly Suite and Sparkle were stamped twice on watercolor paper with black pigment ink and heat embossed with clear powder.  I wanted double impressions so I could have an extra set of butterflies and the center of the flower for layering.

After water coloring the images, I cut a small opening in the music collage and popped it up on foam tape to create a window to view the sentiment.

Here comes the “glittery” part of the challenge……

Wonder Tape was used around the edge of the white cardstock to hold the ultra-fine crystal glitter.  Before attaching the flower and butterflies to the card they were sprayed with Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz.

To bedazzle the center of the flower, I applied Yellow, Fruit Punch and Lavender Stickles.

If you have a “glittery” greeting, be sure to enter the challenge – there are great prizes!!

Have a sparkle-filled day,
