This month we were given a few pieces of "bling" from Mon Ami Gabby to play with, so I thought it would be fun to incorporate some of the samples into my design this month. I had a few strings of the Diamond Mesh that came in some lovely fall colors, so I used two of them to trim the bottom of the dress.
The three "flowers" on the left were cut from a piece of Flower Diamond Mesh which was made with clear flowers. I was able to color them by using Adirondack Alcohol Ink Sunshine Yellow.
My background was done using the Dry Embossed Flocked Backgrounds technique, with the Sizzix embossing folder (Rays), some Sun Dazzle Sparkle N Soft, a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet and Memento Cantaloupe ink. I love making these fun, fuzzy backgrounds. Adds a lot of texture to your projects. You can see the embossed pattern more clearly in the photo below.
I was thinking sparkly and blingy went well with this lovely image. I stamped her in StazOn black, then she was fussy cut and colored with watercolor crayons using a waterbrush. I added Celestial glitter to the wings and flower centers and then Bridal glitter to the dress using a Sakura Glue Pen.
I used Gold Mirror Cardstock to add even more shine to the card, although it does make it difficult to photograph! The sentiment was stamped in Versamark then heat embossed in Black Detail. It was then cut and embossed with a rectangle die cut. The circle behind her was cut and embossed with Spellbinder's Classic Circle die. The background was layered to another piece of the Gold Mirror Cardstock and then I assembled the card using Tear-ific Tape and dimensional dots. Dimensional Glue was used to attach the "flowers". Full instructions can be found here, in the SNS Gallery, if needed.
Hope you've enjoyed my project today, and that you'll check out the rest of the Design Team's projects. Remember to leave a comment for us all, to be eligible for the Grand prize win!
