Glittered ‘n’ Groovy

We want to see you get busy with the bling,sparkles or glitter this week at Craft Your Passion for our ADD GLITTER/SPARKLES challenge.Who doesn’t like a bit of glitz in their life?So head on over and join in the fun. There are some digi stamps to be won and why not grab some inspiration from the fabulous DT creations while you’re there?!

For my card I chose to work with Cool Girl from Lauretta’s Digital Stamps.I couldn’t think of a more perfect,girly image to give a shimmering make-over.

Here’s a closer view.I really struggled to capture the glitter on camera.Sometimes it works and sometimes it just doesn’t 😦

It’s showing up better on the image but the floral patterened paper and the flowers are glittered quite a lot too.I wonder if the camera’s homing in on the image and that’s why it’s not showing?If anyone has any tips/ideas on how to improve the results please could they share their secret with me?

There’s a fabulous prize on offer from our sponsor :

Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps And More are giving the very generous prize of 5 digital stamps or digital paper sets to one lucky winner!!

Here’s another view of the Window Treat Box I made just to give more of an idea of the details on it and how the lid is held on:

When I saw this adorable image of Five Pumpkin Friends from Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps And More I could see straight away how I wanted to use it.I found the instructions on Splitcoast Stampers for this cute Window Treat Box.The instructions are easy to follow and there is a video for support if you’re still not sure.The only difference is I cut my aperture to fit the image using my Fiskars paper trimmer.

I thought I’d go for a rustic feel rather than the traditional  Halloween colours as it seemed to suit the pumpkins so well.Although I’ve used the image in a Halloween theme I think you could use them for any Autumnal occaision.I found the sentiment from a selection at Birdscards.There’s a lot more too not just sentiments but images too – and they’re all free!
