First up is the Be Inspired Challenge for the Cuttlebug Challenge. For this week we were challenged to use glitter in our creations. Our sponsor this week is Sweet-N-Sassy stamps and I used the butterfly image for my card.
I colored it in with my markers and then ran it through my Xyron upside down so that the adhesive was applied to the front - or colored side - of my butterfly. Then I covered it in ultra fine clear glitter. Oh it is sooo shimmery!!
For the base I used the Harlequin die and cut out the harlequin shapes from a multitude of glittered papers from a DCWV stack. After adhering them to my black base I added gemstones at the points and then attached it to my base with dimensionals.
What do you think? It's very bright and colorful and definitely not my usual style. One minute I adore it and then the next I think it's too much and too busy.
Be sure to visit the Cuttlebug Challenge blog for more info on this week's sponsor and to see the rest of the design team's creation.
