On the first two cards I have added some Gold Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium. I have used a harlequin mask and scraped the sparkle through and wiped little flecks of the Sparkle Medium around the card - certainly messy - and certainly proved a nightmare with the flash on the camera!!
On the front of the three cards I have used one of the toppers, added four layers of detail clear embossing powder (as I don't have an UTEE), left it to co cold and cracked and then inked over with Tim Holtz's Tea Dye distress ink pad. The cards have been finished off with a variety of items like fibres, ribbon, Craftwork Cards sentiments, Papermania Glitterations and Card Candi.
I am entering these cards into the following challenges:
Lexi's Creations - Monochromatic
Ooh-la-la-Creations - Sparkle and shine (first two cards)
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Allsorts - Animals
