"Glitter it"


One of the latest trends seems to be adding a little sparkle to your cards, now I love a bit of bling!! and couldn't wait to get my hands on the new "Wink of Stella" pens.  The pen seems very similar to my Sakura Stardust pen but I am thrilled with the added sparkle to my cards.

This card is for the Wednesday challenge over at the Simon Says Blog, I have added lots of sparkle to my card.  
I have used a new Memory Box die called Ringo Tile to make a stencil, I then sponged on different Distress inks over the stencil and then added a "Wink of Stella" to the Distress colours.  Not easy to see in the photographs but it really has a gorgeous sparkle.  Next I cut the sentiment with my Silhouette and added some gems.



The weather has turned cold again here this weekend, we had been rather spoilt over the past couple of weeks and now we are all back to jumpers and coats!!  I hope its a bit warmer where you are.

Love the sparkle and the lovely colour palette Sally! It's still hot on our end, but at least mornings and evenings are cooling off a bit.

Love all of the sparkle on your card, Sally! I have been adding lots of wink of Stella too recently :)

What a great look with using the die as a stencil. A very pretty card Sally. I like the Wink of Stella pen - I think it goes on a bit easier than the Sakura Star dust pen

All the sparkle is awesome Sally! Love how you made your own stencil! It's been sunny here but still cold:(. We are hoping spring doesn't skip us completely!
