I hope you'll join us for Challenge #88 at Shopping Our Stash. The challenge this week is all about BLING! Use your oldest bling: rhinestones, Stickles, glitter, etc. I love adding bling to my cards! But going with the oldest, I had to dig out my small collection of Art Institute Glitter. The little vials of colored sparkle have not been used in a very long time. (And with the mess I made, now I remember why!)
Here's the outside of my card:
I started with a black card base and then a white layer. I added a strip of washi tape across the white layer. The xylophone image is from Paper Smooches: "Knick Knacks". After stamping it in Memento ink I colored it in with Bic markers and then very carefully, one section at a time, added some glue and then colored glitter. I mounted the white image panel onto black and then popped it up with dimensionals. Oh, I added some Crystal Effects to the "sticks", although you can't tell from this photo. The sentiment is also from Paper Smooches: Sentiment Sampler.
Because the card base was black I also added a white layer to the inside of the card:
I used the Top Note die to cut the layer and added a sparkly Jolee's note sticker in the corner.
Off to stamp some more!
