Crafts & Me #17 Glitter

Its a sparkly one this next fortnight over at Crafts & Me and we are challenging you to use GLITTER!  Not hard given the time of year - mind you its not hard ANY time of year!

For this challenge I was colouring in The Gift by Molly Harrison but checked the DT blog and my teamie Tracy who's hosting had also chosen to do The Gift and also in the blue colours I'd picked out lol!   I hastily cobbled together another one haha!

Sooo this one is KRISTA by one of my favourite artists Hannah Lynn. 

She's coloured with promarkers in my favourite blues (Cool Aqua, Sky Blue and Azure) and I've used a sakura stardust clear pen to accent the hair.  I've used glitter card punched with a martha stewart doily lace punch and the blue card I sprayed with crafters companion iridescent spray & sparkle (Which says is non toxic but smells like nail varnish so spray outside unless you want to choke lol!)  I've embossed with the divine swirls embossing folder.  I also sprayed the flowers with the the crafters companion spray (by which time I really was choking!)
Starry background paper is a freebie from Bearly Mine Designs HERE.  I've drawn round the edges of the larger stars with the sakura pen and used stickles glue around the edge of the card.  The harlequin paper is a daisy and dandilion one which I've distressed with scissors and some broken china distress ink.
Sentiment is another by Stamping All Day (I do love their little text stamps!) which I've embossed with Moonglow Morning Glory Azure Teal

Hope you can come and join us for our sparkly challenge!

So you changed your image ha, couldn't take the competition, lol. I love this image Vix and the blues are my favourite, oops, and the glitter. Fabulous colouring as always. I forgot to mention on my post that used a bit of the moonshadow embossing powder on the edges of my doily and then added a little sparkle, you'd be proud of me.
