Good morning folks, here I am bright an early with my DT card for our new challenge over at PanPastel UK Challenge where our theme is 'Glitter and Glitz'. You don't have to use PanPastels to enter the challenge but of course we'd be happy if you did. :-). Apologies in advance for the awful pic, we don't seem to have had any light to get a decent photo for weeks now.
Now for a change there isn't a lot of stamping on this project. I was playing around with PanPastel colours and loved the combination of Diarylide Yellow, Ultramarine Blue and Permanent green. My truly horrible photography skills have bleached out a lot of the colour in the pic but in real life these 3 colours are totally scrumptious together, adding the yellow creates a fab lime shade. Anyway the backgrounds were created in a matter of minutes by simply applying the panpastels with a sofft sponge and blending them together.
The focal image was made using a beautiful dreamweaver stencil from my not-so-secret Santa Annie :-). I applied creative expressions black glue to the stencil carefully removed it and sprinkled on Beadazzles in Macarena. I wasn't sure if the black glue would work or not so it was a bit of an experiment lol. The colours haven't shown up to well in the pic but they have a lot of copper in which contrasts beautifully with the greens. You can't beat Beadazzles for a some serious glitter and sparkle lol.
I left the tree overnight to dry and to complete my card I added stickles in midnight blue and more beadazzzles (this time attached using red line tape. The butterfly is a stamp from Chocolate Baroque, stamped on acetate and embossed with black and glittered on the reverse. The sentiment stamp is also from Chocolate Baroque.
