Glitter and Shine

Hello.  Welcome.  Today was warm and mild day I took advantage to go out in the garden and do a bit of tidying.  I had absolutely no help from this guy

Say hi to Bob.  He was having a very relaxed day.  Now and again he would get up, nibble on something, check the girl bunnies were still in their cages, then lie down again somewhere else.  Usually where I wanted to work or walk.  No help.  

I wanted to use Unity Stamp Co. Beach Girl which I was lucky enough to win in the GIU blog hop.  Thanks Unity.  I started with paper from Basic Grey Serenity collection.  I used Memory Box Shine stencil and Stormy Sky distress ink.  Then I bumped the stencil and used Salty Ocean distress ink.  I stamped Beach Girl on white card and coloured with watercolour pencils.  I cut her out and added her to the background.  Then I thought it needed some bling so I went a little crazy with the glitter glue dots.  I think I might be using this stamp a lot.

  1. Gail, This card is Breathtaking! I love Angie Blom's stamps but I don't have this one and now I NEED IT! (grin) And I absolutely LOVE what you did with that stencil... I am so CASEing this one!!

  2. Great background, Gail, especially with the stencil/bump technique. Your glitter glue dots remind me of the sun sparkling on the water--well done on that, too. The image is new to me (lucky you!) and you have done her proud!

  3. Thanks for joining us at the Take It Make It Challenge.
