Reminder The Flower Challenge #25 Add Sparkle


Its time for another card to remind you that The Flower Challenge has only 10 days left for this challenge which is all about 'Sparkle'. Sparkle can be adding sparkly things to the card front, sparkling up the sentiment, background sparkle or sparkle on the coloured image.

I could not resist using the big background stamp from The Ton again. I so love these big flowers especially as it gives me a chance to look at shadows and highlights in a large version. Also the Zigs combined with the Nuvo brush make colouring so very easy to experiment with.



Here I have added the faintest bit of the dark pink on the end of the petal and on the tip then use the palest pink to pull the colour out a bit then the Nuvo glimmer brush to spread the colour, wiping off extra colour onto a paper towel.

Check out that sparkle on both the petals and the sentiment. The sentiment I die cut in pink funfoam and the silver adhesive glitter paper (ahhhh I am getting low, what to use on everything but don't want to run out). I just love this adhesive glitter paper, the way the thread flows on it and the ease of cutting and adhering when using it.


This sentiment I cut out of the flower first so I now have a very pretty pink sentiment to use somewhere else and I have inset the funfoam so it lines up perfectly.

Stamped and white embossed the small sentiment on black card stock and added with a piece of foam adhesive to lift it slightly.

Another large card to send to someone just to let them know they are 'fabulous'

Okay now that you have seen my card its time to go check out the rest of the Design Teams beautiful inspirational cards and see if we have inspired you to add to our Challenge.

Challenges:






I think I would describe myself as Clean and Simple
and this card is a typical example. One layer, watercolour,
die cut sentiment, sparkle thats me.

Before dropping down to the comment form, I spent quite some time examining this beauty up close. You've painted this bloom perfectly, and the bit of shimmer on it is incredible. The sentiment pops in more than one way, too. What a gorgeous card, Aileen. You've outdone yourself. LOVE this. Bev
