~~~~~~~Sparkle and Shimmer~~~~~~~

Do you ever just get an "urge" to do something?
Well, I had an "urge" to do a clean and simple card.
I saw the challenge at CAS on Sunday was Sparkle and Shimmer...
so that is how this card "came to be"!!


I have a nice "collection" of Elizabeth Peel Off Stickers....
these AREN'T regular sticker stickers...lol
They are an outline sticker and so fun to use!!

I "peeled" off my flower and stuck it on a piece of scor-tape paper.
then you apply a very fine glitter to the sticky part...
I used a transparent "warm glitter"...
then you can color it in with Copics or brush markers....
I chose to use my rarely ever used SU markers.....
and "colored" in my flower right on top of the glitter....
Colors used were Only Orange, Basic Black (for the center), Pool Party,
Coastal Cabana, and Crisp Catalope.
I was happy these markers worked so well, saving the wear on my Copics!!

Before adhering the finished flower to my card, I stamped my
"splatters" using a SU Gorgeous Grunge stamp with Only Orange ink...
I love that the "sticker" ends up being transparent enough
that the "grunge" shows through under it!!

I added some rather large Teresa Collins sequins, a bit of twine and it was done!!
I kind of like it...simple but effective I think!!

Don't forget to enter my  MAY blog candy above...a great prize this month!!

Also there is a "new kid in town".....
be sure to check out the Dies R Us new challenge blog
I will be "debuting" there on May 15th...BUT...
the challenge is going on right now!!
