All That Glitters...



This week on Stampotique Designers Challenge we are running with the theme Bling Bling hosted by twinkly DT member Kim Prince.

I'm not a sparkly person normally (although my wedding shoes were pure silver sparkle trainers), so this was a bit of a challenge for me. But thats what its about ay.



I used my favourite splashy background technique along with my Big Bee stamp.



As always, Carol and Jim over at Stampotique Originals are offering the chance for one lucky participant to win a gift certificate for $30!!!!!!!!!! This challenge being the second challenge of the month its Stampotique stamps only please, but it goes to show by this card, you only need one stamp.

Talking of which, this months GCCC#2(Gingersnap Creations Creative Connection) is to use Only One. Take a look, its amazing what you can create with a solitary stamp image. If you take part in the Gingersnap challenge though, make sure you read all the details BEFORE posting , unlike me lol.(see main post topic clause in the GC post - doh!)

Gorgeous - even if you don't "do" sparkly, you do it very well!! Silver sparkle trainers?? Wasn't a big white fluffy meringue style wedding, then?!
Saw your card in the latest Stampers Sampler, Take Ten, or was it Gallery? Had so many this week, I've got confused. Anyhow, congratulations!!

Lovely work Jo, even if you don't like sparkly, it works a treat. I love your bees, I know they are going to rate as among my top 10 stamps of all time.
