PB at Allsorts - Glamour & Bling

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.
This also used:
DP's - free download from
Satin ribbon from Hobbycraft
Adhesive gems
Sentiment - Creative Expressions

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.

This also used:
DP's - as before
Martha Stewart large Daisy Border punch
Wild Orchid mini rosehead flowers
Gorgeous Pin from Posh Pins
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards

There are some fabulous prizes up for grabs this month - pop over and take a look 

Don't forget that you have all month to join in the fun.

Thanks for popping by.
Have a wonderful day.

Debs, these are gorgeous. I love how you got the shine to show up in your photos, something I have trouble achieving. Thanks for your kind comments on my blog.
