All That Glitters

*I know how it looks, but all that glitters ain't gold* - Biffy Clyro. Ahhh, gotta love the guy.

Sorry, I was getting distracted by the moozik there! Onwards..

Time for a new challenge at Passion for ProMarkers. Why else would I be here!! It's Tuesday. ;)

We want to see all that sparkly stuff. 


It can be anything from Stickles to loose glitter, American Crafts glitter tape, Spica pens. Show us your sparkly stuff!!

Here is the gorgeous Shoe Fetish from Redonkulous. This is the first Redonkulous image I've bought and coloured up. I love her. Such fun to colour. I should mention however, that as of 14th May.. Redonkulous was rebranded as Redonkadoodles. New blog, FB page and shop to check out. Same fab images, different name. That is all.

This card was created as part of a commission. The lady loved pink, and shoes. I think this card puts that across, no? ;)

I used some papers from My Minds Eye, in pale pinks and a black/grey doily print. The image is pretty large and so takes up most of the 6"x6" card. I've added a lot of stamping around the image panel, Whimsy Stamps and some swirls and stuff. 

Some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, a rolled rose cut with a MFT die, some delightful little buttons that I've attached using some pink button twine from The Ribbon Girl and some washi tape bling up most of the card.

Now for the glitz. The most obvious is the American Crafts glitter tape. I've also added Gold Stickles to the center of each of the stars on the large shoe. As always, there are dots of Liquid Pearls and Stickles all up and around the cluters of flowers and buttons too!!

Hope you likey.
