Make it Sparkle Tiddly Inks Challenge

Hi everyone!! Today, we are kicking off another great challenge on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog called Make It Sparkle.

This theme was lots of fun! I used Fall Queen for my digital image and added lots of glitter elements to make her sparkle.

First, I blended Black Soot distress ink onto a white cardstock base. The light actually gives the impression of a mirror, doesn't it?

Then, I created the aqua sparkle background with my Ray of Sunshine cutting plate using Scor-Tape and Glitter Ritz microfine glitter. Hopefully, I'll be able to share a tutorial with you soon.

Lastly, I colored Fall Queen with Copics and added Stickles to her headpiece and belt. Since the image was fairly large, I decided to heat emboss the sentiment on the largest pumpkin using clear embossing powder and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I fussy cut the image and popped it up with dimensionals. Three orange sequins with a dab of glossy accents on each finish off the card front.

When you have a minute, please check out what the rest of the team has created to inspire you. Now it's your turn to make a project sparkle!

Thanks for stopping by!!
