Farm Fresh Friday - Glitter and Glue

Hi All,

Well, back to The Greeting Farm - what can I say?  Well, I was browsing through all my Anyas, and decided that Ballerina Anya was the way to go! Isn't she cute?  You can find the post for this week's Farm Fresh Friday challenge HERE - the challenge is to use glitter and glue...anything sparkly and/or sticky!

I decided that pink was a MUST!  My card base is Whisper White CS, layered with Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White, and DCWV All Dressed Up DSP.  For the horizontal layer, it is a Pink Pirouette piece, then a Basic Gray piece, followed by a Basic Black piece, which was punched with an EK Success edge punch.  I tied some Black Gingham Ribbon around that layer, and I added 3 pink Twinkle Brads from CloseTo My Heart to the corner.  Everything is so sparkly and glittery! 

For the main panel, I cut out a Pink Pirouette circle with my Classic Circle Nesties, and sponged some Basic Gray ink onto the bottom, then layered it onto a white circle.  That was layered onto a Basic Black piece cut out with my Blossom Nestabilities.  I sprayed some Glimmer Mist all over that circular layer for some shimmer.

I stamped Anya onto Neenah Solar White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured with Copic markers, cut out, and mounted on with Dimensionals.  I coloured her tiara and shoes with Atyou Spica Glitter Pens for even more sparkle.

I have never done such a sparkly card in my life! That's why these challenges are so good - push you out of your comfort zone into something interesting!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
