We have a great challenge for you at Stampin' Royalty today! The Challenge for this week is a Recipe Challenge -Bring on the Bling!! - Rhinestones, Glitter, Sparkles!! Be sure to check out all the Design Team samples for some awesome inspiration and we would love to have you play along.
Now let me first tell you that this card is REALLY shimmery IRL! The whole card was misted with some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint that had beeen mixed with alcohol and sprayed on. This gives it a nice soft glimmer.
If you click on this photo to view it larger you should be able to see some of the shimmer. Boy is it ever frustrating when you can not get a good picture-promise it is soooo pretty IRL,lol! The base of the card is Soft Suede Textured card stock. I created a flagged piece by using some Beau Chateau Designer Series then added a Marina Mist decorative edge by punching the card stock with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. Lastly I created the "flagged" end by using the 1 3/8" Square Punch. The main image piece is from the Beau Chateau Side Notes (these are amazing accents to add to cards or scrap pages)
I lightly watercoloured the flowers then stamped on the sentiment and little bee. I created this card especially for a very wonderful friend of mine who has a thing for bee images:) Of course I needed to add some "bling" so I used a strip of Rhinestone Jewels.The ribbon flower was created using Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake Seam Binding and a Antique Brad.
