Glitter and Sparkle at Imagination Crafts

Good morning lovelies - this is a scheduled post as I am still away - the first of two today.
Over at the imagination-craftschallenges blog a new challenge is starting today and the theme is Glitter and Sparkle. This has to be the perfect excuse to get that sparkle medium out and show us what you've made. You don't have to use Imagination Crafts products to enter the challenge but only those who do will be eligible for the £40 to send on Imagination Crafts products!

Here's what I did:










I started by brayering some jade sparkle medium onto paper and allowing it to dry. Then I used red berries sparkle medium and the poinsettia Imagination crafts mask and created the main background. On another piece of card I did a further three complete poinsettias and once dry cut them out and formed the focal 'flower' with them. I matted the background onto the brayered sparkle medium and then made the card up. No need for glitter card any more! The poinsettia in this card was partly inspired by the tag from week 4 of the funkie Junkie 12 tags of Christmas - follow the link below to see Linda's gorgeous tag - its fabulous xx
