Craft Your Passion Challenge - Guest Design Team Position - Week Four

Well, the time has come for my last post as a member of the Craft Your Passion Guest Design Team for October.  The month has flown b but I have been able to use some lovely digital images and have seen some lovely creations by the Design Team and all the bloggers entering the challenges.  Thank you for this opportunity.

This week the challenge is a Technique Challenge - Add glitter and sparkles.  For me the glitter part is certainly a challenge as I hate getting messy with glitter so I have cheated somewhat and used some glitter paper I got for my birthday and put this through my Tim Holtz's embossing folder for some added texture and I have also used some Papermania Glitterations.  I love these but I don't think they can be that popular as not very many places sell them.  The image of the ballet shows is by the talented Corrine.  Click here to go and see more of her work.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers.  I did start off with the ballet shoes pink as well but they just sunk into the card so I added a very light lilac over the top and I think that this works better.  Most of the backing papers and card are scraps BUT I was naughty and started a new piece of paper.  It was one I won in some blog candy earlier in the year and is Henbury Lane and it is one of the glitter papers and is so sparkly so it was perfect to use.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Digi Doodles - Keep it simple
Moving Along With the Times - Use Promarkers and anything goes
Stamp Something - Use a digi
Pink Friday - Pink card or project
2 Sisters - Anything goes
Totally Gorjuss - Sparkle
I Did it Creations - Anything goes.

I love the embossed layer on this card. It really makes it pop and the colouring on your image is subtle but contrasts beautifully with the bold embossing. Love it! x x
