Jan. 25 Challenge Pearls or Bling

Well, Hi another week has flown by already and it's Wednesday January 25. That means it's time for another challenge from Whimsy.

This week the challenge is Pearls or Bling.

This challenge pretty much lets you do just about anything as long as you have added pearls or bling to your project. So I hope that your up for the challenge and will make a card or project and play along for a chance to win a free digital stamp from Whimsy Stamps. Here's the card that I have made for this weeks challenge. I used a digital image from Whimsy Stamps by Chrissy Armstrong called Daisy Butterfly. I colored the image with copic markers using a feathering technique to get the 2 colors on the wings to blend together and then added some stickles for a little glitter effect.

The saying is so true I could not resist adding this sentiment to this card.

Here is a close up of the flower that I put in the corner of my card. I used Kaiser Craft flowers, and in between the bottom and middle layer of flowers I added some ribbon to help the flower have a little more of a dramatic effect. Then I added some pearls to give the flower a center and a few punched out butterflies with some stickles on them for a little extra detail.

Supplies: Daisy Butterfly from Whimsy Stamps, Copic markers, Spellbinders: Fleur de Lis Rectangle & Fancy Tags, Kaiser Craft Pearls, patterned paper & flowers, Technique Tuesday sentiment stamp, Martha Stewart buttery punch, ribbon, Ranger Star Dust Stickles & purple distress ink.
