Just poppin' in for the Gina K challenge blog hop. Our challenge this time was to pick one of the backrounds from the sidebar on Stamp TV and make a card.
I chose the 'shimmering backrounds' although its really hard to see any shimmer in this first card.....
I ran white cardstock through my snowflake cuttlebug folder and the used glitter gel pens to highlight the texture.
I then used a label from the Lovely Labels 2 set for the main image - stamped in navy. Phrase and snowflakes are from the 'Holiday Hospitality' set - phrase stamped in navy and snowflakes in light blue.
My second card is much more colorful and I was accually able to catch some shimmer in my photos - I used an oriental lantern texture folder and more glitter gel pens to color the lanterns.
I used another label from the 'Lovely Labels ' set stamped in red and edged with black for a faux layer.
The phrase is from the 'Inside and out' set and the koi from the 'By your side' set.
The koi is colored with the glitter gel pens too.
I added tiny red rhinestones to the label design and larger red rhinestones to the card.
All for me tonight - make sure and stop by the other DT blogs to see their favorite techniques....
