Don't Colour It - Glitter It!

It's Pixie Cottage challenge day today and we have a sketch and the theme of mother/special lady this week. I've used the sketch and the 'special lady' for this item would be the bride - well, every bride is special, aren't they?


Instead of colouring the image I chose to use micro fine glitter and it really sparkles in the sunlight. The colours I used are Black & Silver for the groom and the bride's dress is Pearl with Red Rose for the bouquet and her headdress. A simple, quick but really effective way to use an image.


The stamp I used is called For Ever and Ever by ArTish and it's available to purchase here.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Ladybug Crafts - Celebration

Oldie but a Goodie - Wedding or Anniversary

Pixiedust Studios - Lace it up

Tellen's Place - Sparkle and Lace

Tuesday Throwdown - Sparkle or Bling

My fellow Pixie Cottage teamies have once again made some beautiful projects for the challenge. Please pop over to take a look at them.
Thanks for looking, Sharon xx
