PIP Challenge 1826 - Sparkle N Sprinkle

Anyone challenged by the warm weather? Despite warmer than normal temps here, there was a lovely lake breeze that made the days pleasant and me grateful for living where I do. However, come winter someone might have to remind me I said that...

Time for a new PIP challenge sponsored by Sparkle N Sprinkle, where there's a sale going on. Buy 3 digital stamps, get the 4th free. Rubber lover, digital or clear they have what you desire. A crafter's paradise for all!

Sparkle N Sprinkle provided me with Lovely Magnolia Digital Stamp Set (also available in rubber.) Since I was short on time, I aligned and printed the white magnolia, two leaves and sentiment on a laser printer in color. I changed the sentiment to print in green just because I could and I love green.

While this makes a lovely panel, I took Copic B000, Pale Porcelain Blue to deepen the blue already there. Then I mixed Diamond Glaze with Amuse Stardust Sparkle Spray and painted two coats over the blue ink. It added dimension and a soft sparkle (like flower petals have) to the overall look. Here's a close up though I'm not sure I captured it very well.

Trimmed and adhered to a black panel and layered with green and blue panels to a white card blank measuring 8 .50" by 4.00" , which fits a business size envelope.

Do yourself a favor and check out  all that Sparkle N Sprinkle have to offer. You can call it research, just in case you win the PIP challenge and $15.00 gift certificate to Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Happy crafting!
