Crafts and Me Challenge Blog - Wednesday 28/4/10

Over at the Crafts and Me Challenge Blog the challenge this week is for "sparkle".  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers.  For those crafters that know me I don't do glitter very much as I hate getting messy but I do love the Sakura Clear Stardust pen for adding as much sparkle as I want to projects.  I have highlighted areas of this gorgeous Sweet Pea stamp hair, clothes and also the backing paper.  The shimmer isn't showing much on the photo but it's more than I normally do but this kind of image allows for it.  I have falled so in love with these Sweet Pea stamps thanks to a fellow crafter!!!  I have used backing paper from my stash, distressed the edges of the image and punched card with Tim Holtz's Faded Jeans Distress Ink Pad, added a peel-off, some flowers and a ticket sentiment from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Crafty HO's - April showers bring May flowers
