Sugar Bowl Challenge #14


Here is my Sugar Bowl Challenge for the week. This was a fun one as it was to follow a sketch by Judy, however you were supposed to include some sparkle, glitz, shimmer, glitter, etc. You get the drift. Well that was no problem over here as G.G #2 (Glitter Girl #2) was my nickname at a recent scrapbooking retreat. Well for this card I used Shimmer Blue Cardstock, Glittered Pattern Paper, Foil Backed Rhinestones from Stamping Bella, and tons of glitter. I used the Sugar Nellie Stamp called Reflective. For this image I tried something a little different. I colored the sky area with a medium blue and used my mineral spirits to blend it. I wanted her to look like she was standing on a ridge looking down into the valley. Hope it looks like that to you.
