what a change a week makes! Last week it was still chilly (I was buying scarves!) and this week we have warm breezes floating through the house. It won't last long but oh my I'll enjoy it and the promise of summer to come. During the week I seized a quiet moment to finish off colouring a flower for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge. This week Nikki wants you to Just Add Glimmer. Glimmer paper ideally but think lots of glittery, shimmer and shine.
As soon as I saw the new black glimmer paper in the SU! Holiday catalogue I knew I had to use it.
The flower and the glimmer leaves were going to dominate the card front so I wanted to keep the mat underneath white but I also wanted to add some subtle texture. Embossing the striped scallop thinlet turned out to be the perfect solution. Then it was a simple process to put all the base layers on and add the flower, sentiment and sequins. Now that I've finally got to the point of finishing this it will be in the post quick smart as it's a very late birthday card!
Hope you can join us this week and don't forget to check out the glimmer filled inspiration from the rest of the DT.
