Bundled Sparkle

Hello to you. I am sharing this card I did for the Scrap'n Stamp blog, which is all about the sparkle, just in case you were wondering!

Scrap'n Stamp has daily challenges if you are looking for challenges to do. Today is day 13, which is Sparkle, and that is me.

And there is a lot of sparkle on this card.

First I am using Gina K Design In the Navy cardstock for my cardbase. I also cut an extra piece for the Stickles application, as it can distort the card and I did not want my cardbase distorted. I then applied the Stickles gel to the extra piece of cardstock and set it aside to dry. It takes quite awhile for the gel to dry, so be sure to leave enough time, or do the night before.

On cardstock I stamped the Penny Black image using Memento Ink and proceeded to colour using Copic markers. I used B12, B14 and B16 for her scarf, buttons and boots. 

For the birds chest and the bird seed bag I used B00. On the birds wings I used a layer of E23 and a layer of B14. 

On the coat and hood lining, and the mittens and her stockings I used R22. For the outer coat and hood I used R20, R22 and R14. On her face I used E00 and E51 with R20 on her cheeks.

I used my Copic blender to lighten the toe of the boots. And, to finish I used a Sakura gold glitter pen to colour the white cardstock between her boots and legs. A tad in that area is also the scarf, so the blue colour.

 I then fussy cut the image on the edge of the black stamping lines, to get a clean edge. To finish off I ran around the edges of the image with my black Copic as I dislike white edges. 

I then die cut the gold glitter cardstock using the Penny Black die. I also cut a piece of fun foam with the same die. I coloured the edges of the foam with the B14 Copic, along with a half inch on the flat surface of the fun foam, which allows the blue to peek through on the final card. The pieces were glued together using Nuvo Adhesive.

Once the Stickles were dry I glued the navy piece to my card base using Nuvo Adhesive, then attached the top panel, again using the Nuvo Adhesive.

And, just in case there is not enough glitter I die cut the Miss You sentiment from the gold glitter cardstock and coloured it with a Martha Stewart glitter marker that I have had for eons. It has liquid glitter inside the pen, which leaks when you least expect it, hence I only use the pens when it does not matter if it leaks, and this is one of those times. I glued the sentiment to the card front using the Nuvo Adhesive again.

Well, I think I have sparkle covered. I do think that a red glitter panel would look fabulous too and would be great for a Christmas card.
