Good morning. It's the first of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts and this month the theme is
Glamour & Glitz.
I have two projects to share with you for this challenge.
The first is a set of notelets and a thank you card that I made for Jack to give to his Y6 teacher as his leaving gift.
It is disappointing that the photos don't show the gorgeous 'bling' on these cards. I started by 'squidging' various distress ink colours onto a non-stick craft mat and then spritzed the inks with Pearl Glimmer Mist and then 'squidged' some linen textured cardstock over the inks to create a gorgeous shimmery backgroud to stamp the elegant Penny Black Love Blush image (3815J) with archival black and then heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Pearl.
I also then sprinkled the flower heads with Star Dust stickles and glittered the edge if the cardstock with stickles too.

My second project is an easel card and I have used another beautiful Penny Black floral image - Gossamer (3865K) this time I 'coloured' the image with wet glue and sparkly glitters.
