Flower Shop

Our sponsor this month is Scrappy Tails!
The Prize is an electronic gift card for $25 to the lucky winner.

The challenge this month is to
Add Some Glitter.

We know glitter is hard to photograph, so if we can't see it, please let us know what you glittered and/or what you used.

Here is my project-
 
 
 


I chose these images from Flower Shop Stamps & Dies, by Scrappy Tails for my card. I used Copics to color the image, and the matching dies to cut them out. The background is made by blending Tea Dye & Vintage Photo Distress Oxides. The Wood Floor die by Penny Black makes a great floor, and the sentiment is from Little B's Handwritten collection. I had some brown glitter paper in my scraps, and it worked perfectly! There is also some Stickles on some of the plants, which I couldn't get to show up in the picture!

I chose this image from Coffee Shop, by Scrappy Tails for my card. I used Copics to color the image, and the image was cut using the coordinating dies. The papers are from the Avery Elle Sorbet Collection, and the seam is hidden by the white Glitter on a Roll by Recollections. That white glitter strip sure took on the pink of the background paper! The Coffee Talk die cut is from Cas-ual Fridays, and the sentiment is from Sugar Pea Designs Caffeine Addict Stamp set.
