Welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge Wednesday! Today's challenge is to use glitter or rhinestones - anything shiny and blingy! - on your project! Please be sure to check out all the great projects from the rest of the design team over on the Belli Blog.
Once again, I've got this one covered!! I used a new toy, the bird Nestabilities dies, to cut the two birds out of Grungepaper. I painted them with Making Memories Manila paint and then topped that with a coat of Shimmerz Angel Wings for my first layer of sparkle. When they were dry, I painted a layer of glue on the smaller one and covered it with some Martha Stewart Snow Glitter. I dabbed the larger bird with my Versamark pad and covered it with Powder Keg's Glue Powder. I heated it and then sprinkled on some Powder Keg White Pearl embossing powder and heated again to set it.
The background paper is SEI Love Birds and the stamps for the sentiment and the polka dots are from Papertrey Ink. The twill is from Stampin UP! and the crochet trim is from Hobby Lobby. The rhinestone brads are from American Crafts and the rhinestone hearts are from Amuse.
This card covers several challenges (so many of our Belli Challenge participants combine multiple challenges for their entries - it's rubbing off on me!!):
Caardvarks - sketch
Crazy 4 Challenges - use polka dots
Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge (SSNOTIME120) - use something new (the bird Nestabilities and heart shaped rhinestones)
