Crafty Cardmakers spotlight - glitter & sparkle


Time for a new spotlight challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and this week we're doing glitter & sparkle - a favourite of mine, so I had fun with this :o)

I've used one of my new LOTV stamps, I do love these bears and I really have to get some more of the Christmas ones, so cute!  I've coloured him with promarkers and added extra shading with koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador.  Added sparkle to the image with glamour dust, although I realised too late that I forgot to add a little snow sparkle under his feet - I'll do that later!  I've used nestie circles and nellie snellen frames to cut out and mount the image.  The papers are MME (I need more of these, love them!) and are all sparkly, I've used shimmery blue & pink cardstock, and embossed one piece of the blue with a cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder.  Added a computer generated sentiment and some punched snowflakes with pink stickles in the centres.

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