A bit of bling is the thing

Hi there everyone and welcome to the latest Crafty Little Fairies challenge for which we have a theme of 'sparkles and bling'. Now I am more of what you would call a subtle bling person…..I love a bit of glitter (OK quite a lot of glitter!) ad some pearls and gem, but I am not an all out 'blinger'! So for my card I have just added a little bit of glitter for a touch of sparkle. This was very east to do as I just doodled somwswirls with a glue pen and then sprinkled away….hopefully they look OK.

My image of choice for this card was a beautiful Rachelle Ann Miller stamp from Crafters Companion and I had to say I just loved colouring it in as it fulfilled two of my colouring obsessions -a cute little animal and the never ending challenge of hair. When I start on hair, I am never sure how it is going to turn out, but I think I did OK this time.

The cuddly toy was also fun to colour as I could play around with my blender pen to get a bit of a furry texture going on.

Finally, isn't the backing paper gorgeous? It was a freebie from a magazine and was designed by a lady called Jennifer Ellory. I am not sure if you can actually buy papers designed by her….if anyone knows please can they send me a comment as I would love to get hold of some.

And finally some other challenges to enter this week:

So that's my little card for today, which I hope you all like, and I hope you will come and join us over at Crafty Little Fairies for our September challenge.

Bye for now.
