Day 27 - Sparkle and Glow

I had a great time creating this single layer card... even though my hands looked like they belonged on a Smurf by the time I was finished!  I masked off the "window panes", sponged on lots of blue ink, stamped some trees and birds then added lots of glitter, shine and sparkle.  I was aiming for a wintery night with frosty windows and the soft glow of Christmas lights.  I don't know if that's exactly what I achieved but it's close enough to keep me happy!
 

YOUR TURN: Pull out all those bottles of glitter, glitz, sparkle and shine and create a card that glows and twinkles with holiday cheer!

I love this Beccy - definitely worth you resembling a Smurf! Great idea with the lights - so much more realistic. Living in NZ which has Christmas in summer, I can only dream of a White Christmas!!

Gorgeous card Beccy and it looks like a wintery night outside whilst warm and cozy inside. The tree lights look wonderfully effective too. Thank you for your continued inspiration this month, even if you did end up a bit like a Smurfette!

Beccy said...

Hi Donna,
The "lights" are rhinestones. Before adhering them to the card I used a dauber to rub on some ink in a matching colour for the "glow". I know they look as though they are actually shining in the photo, but I think that's just the flash from the camera.
Cheers,
Beccy
