Totally Gorjuss - Anything Goes With Glitter

Happy Saturday Everyone

Wow - 1st December already - where has this year gone too?

A nice big "HELLO" to my new followers - thank you so much for choosing to follow me, I am just totally flattered.

This week over at Totally Gorjuss our theme is "Anything Goes With Glitter" and up for grabs is a £10 voucher to spend in Joanna Sheen's store.  As always, go and feast your eyes on the wonderful creations the talented DT ladies have made to whet your appetite over at Totally Gorjuss.

Here is the card I have made:

I love Mo Manning's fairy images, they are just amazing.  I promise you there is oodles and oodles of glitter on this card; I'm afraid I'm a bit rubbish when it comes to taking pictures, I can just never get a good shot of glitter - any ideas would be gratefully appreciated.

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Mo Manning - Winter Fairy Talva
Silver Card:  From My Stash
Large Snowflake Die:  Memory Box - Bianca Snowflake from Dies to Die For
Medium Snowflake Die:  Cheery Lynn - Snowflake 5 from Dies to Die For
Smaller Snowflake:  Cheery Lynn - Snowflowers Set 2 from Dies to Die For
Tiny Snowflakes:  Cheery Lynn - Snowflakes from Dies to Die For
Corner Die:  Cheery Lynn - Lace Corner Deco C from Dies to Die For
Ribbon and Lace:  From My Stash
Diamante Spacer:  The Hobby House
Rhinestones:  The Hobby House
Snowflake Charm:  The Hobby House

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E00o / R20 R30 (cheeks) / N0 (shading)
Hair and Everything Else:  C4 C3 C2 C1 C0 C00
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

I have outlined the image and edged the papers with Weathered Wood Distress Ink
I have sprayed the snowflakes first with Stick and Spray before dousing liberally with Glamour Dust
For the image I used a Quickie Glue Pen before covering with Glamour Dust
I have stitched around the card with my sewing machine

A final picture of the inside of the card so you can see how I have followed the layout through:

And tah-dah - there you have it.

I hope you will come and join in the fun with us over at Totally Gorjuss.

Have a great weekend everyone and thank you for your wonderful comments.
