Totally Gorjuss 4th challenge - bling!


This week at Totally Gorjuss it's a nice easy challenge - we want to see your bling! I think we all love playing with sparkle and blingy bits don't we? Well I do! Hope you'll all join in with us this week :o)

I've used one of my favourite gorjuss girls, coloured with promarkers, with lots of stickles on her wings and I've set some gems into the stickles while it was setting. I found some glitter card that I'd forgotten about, then embossed some yellow coredinations with my new stars embossing folder and sanded it down a bit... then I decided it didn't quite go so I had one of those 'wonder if this will work' moments - I scribbled on the stars with a sakura clear stardust pen and then grabbed a damp baby wipe (nearest thing to hand at the time!) and rubbed the stardust lightly to leave a bit of a shimmer. It doesn't show up brilliantly in the pics but it's quite effective in 'real life'. The green cardstock is DCWV, the flowers were cut with woodware daisy punches, then sprayed with spray adhesive and sprinkled with glamour dust, with a big gem centre. The sentiment is a download from Pink Petticoat, and finally the gorjuss girl is matted onto my new nellie snellen dies - they only arrived yesterday and I just couldn't wait to play with them!

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:


Ooh, I almost forgot to mention it - I spotted earlier that I'd made the top 5 at Stamp Something - how fab is that?! It makes up for the fact that no matter how many challenges I enter, I never win the random prize! Well, I tell a lie, I won Just Magnolia once, but nothing since - never mind!
