Allsorts challenge week 442 - Glitter

It is my turn, once again to host the challenge over at Allsorts and this week I have chosen the theme of Glitter.

This can be glitter card/paper - glitter glue - powdered glitter or glitter pens
Not gems or pearls, as the glitter item

Our sponsor this week is Baker Ross and they have this lovely prize for one lucky winner.

We also have this Tattered Lace Die as a second prize

Here is my card.

The stamp is Woodware - Flower Stems
Stamped with Memento - Tuxedo Black
Coloured with glitter powders and a Quickie Glue pen
Most of the glitter is Art Institute
The very plain green is a Pearl glitter.
The backing card and borders are glitter card.
Paper - Kanban
Computer generated sentiment.
I did have a terrible time taking a photo, then I had a 'lightbulb' moment...
I took the photo in the dark, I think I had the flash on and it worked pretty well to show all the glitter.

Have a good week and thanks for popping by.

using the glitter as your colouring medium was a great idea, your card really sparkles.

Sandra H said...

Beautiful card Kath as always your colours are gorgeous and the stamp is full of lots of flower heads love the glitter too! take care x

Christine L said...

Oh WOW Kath... your card is fabulous - I have a weakness for glitter and love the different colours you used! And clever girl for photographing in the dark... I'll have to try that as I get fed up when I've used lovely glitter and it doesn't show up.

Did you hear on the news that some children's nurseries are now banning the use of glitter?????? That's awful!! They reckon it'll be polluting the oceans... Hmmm... there's a lot worse polluting them before we lose our glitter... it brightens our lives!

Have a lovely weekend..

It's not a case of when are the Elves arriving but when are they going. Being packed off to Santa at the North Pole as we speak for him to deal with. No Elves are going to be under my roof this yr . No way! Hugs Mrs A.

Hi Kath, thanks for your good wishes. I am on the mend now, thankfully the pain is easing gradually, although think it will be quite a while before my arm is back to full strength.
I zoomed in for a closer look at your card and Wow, the sparkle is gorgeous!! I love the image and the borders are so perfect with it. It’s nice to see some flowers - roll on Spring!! :-)
Hope you are well
have a good weekend
Love and hugs, Sue B xx
