Happy Friday! Are you all looking forward to the weekend? I sure am, because I just happen to be making my way to Alaska tomorrow for a quick visit with my daughter who is expecting her first baby any day now! Talk about adding a little sparkle(r) to your life, huh?! Speaking of sparkle, I'm making my inaugural participation in an AEI♥U Challenge, and this one just happens to be all about the sparkle!
I wasn't really sure how or where I was going when I set out to sparkle-ify Avery Elle's Fabulous Florals set (and they are fabulous), so I played around with the idea of creating a stamped background using a couple of the stamps in black ink. Then I took a look through my glitter drawer and couldn't take my eyes off a tube of green glass glitter. Since the glitter is fairly coarse and therefore heavy, I filled each of the open leaves with Ranger Glossy Accents and then sprinkled my glitter on top. I was thrilled with the staying power of the Glossy Accents and the sparkle of that awesome glitter!
Wanting my sentiment to hold its own against all that sparkle, I embossed it with clear embossing powder after stamping it in Versafine Onyx Black ink.
I hope you've enjoyed your visit today and take a minute to check out the AEI♥U Sparkle Challenge! A list of supplies used on my card is listed below.
