Sparkle and Shine Challenge #29

It's May! You know how the saying goes - April showers bring May flowers - which is why the Sparkle and Shine inspiration photo is absolutely perfect for this challenge!

Here is the card I made from the inspiration photo:

I had fun with this card. Here's how I made it:

  1. Create a circle mask by die cutting a circle onto masking paper. Use the negative as the mask.
  2. Using a blender tool, blend Distress Inks onto the card base. (I used Peacock Feathers and Evergreen Bough). While the ink is still wet, use a dry paint brush and brush on Perfect Pearls powder just before removing the mask. Spray Perfect Pearls Mist in gold onto the paper.
  3. Stamp flowers, leaves and succulents and then die cut or fussy cut them. I used Altenew Vintage Florals, Simon Says Stamp/Altenew Layered Flowers and Simon Says Stamp Cups and Succulents. All ink is from Altenew. Adhere to card base.
  4. Stamp sentiment with Versamark and heat emboss in gold. The sentiment is also from Simon Says Stamps Flowers on My Mind.
  5. Don't forget to finish it off with some bling. I used pearl gems from Eyelet Outlet.
