For the first time ever I checked out the Daring Card Makers Challenge Blog...not sure why I have missed it in the past. Anyway, this week their challenge is "Sparkle & Bling" and as I am in the groove making Christmas cards, the theme fitted perfectly.
For this card I have used four Magnolia stamps. I masked twice to create the main image. I firstly stamped Tilda and her masked her and stamped the bauble, then I made a mask for the bauble and stamped over the who thing with the background stamp. The main image is coloured with ProMarkers using the following colours...
Ruby (Hat & Under Dress)
Vanilla (Socks & Over Dress)
Pastel Blue (Shadow)
Metallic Gold (Bauble)
To finish off the main image I added Sakura clear glitter gel pen to Tilda's hair and also Stickles "Diamond" glitter glue to the whole of the bauble, and boy does it sparke...although it is almost impossible to capture that on the photo. I have also used Stampin' Up Choc Chip cardstock, KI Memories Love Elsie "Noel" paper, and DCWV "Christmas Wishes" 6x6 paper pad. The final touches are a Magnolia "ticket" sentiment, a heart pin, a "made with love" heart charm, some Stampin' Up Choc Chip taffeta and some more bling.
I loved this challenge and will now add the blog to my list, and check back weekly.
