The lovely folks over at the Pinkfresh Studio blog are hosting a challenge with the theme of “Shimmer & Shine!” The challenge is to incorporate sparkles, glitter, metallics or other sorts of shimmer and shine into any paper craft project.
Pictured here, you can see one of my entries for this challenge. It’s a floral greeting card featuring a stamped focal image by Pinkfresh Studio. The floral accent stamp and papers are also by Pinkfresh Studio.
Strangely enough, even though I own approximately one zillion different paper craft supplies made by Pinkfresh Studio, I somehow do not have any sparkly Pinkfresh Studio supplies. How is it even possible that I own NOTHING they’ve manufactured that includes gold foil, glitter or sparkles?
Weird. Weird, but unfortunately true.
So, I added a bit of glittery, sparkly washi tape by Graphic 45 to my project. This is my all-time favorite washi tape, and I think of it as being a must-have craft supply.
I also used a purple metallic Sakura Gelly Roll pen to add even more shimmer. Sadly, the metallic shimmer didn’t photograph well when I took pictures of this card. If you look really closely at the scalloped edge around the stamped image that says “I am so proud of you”, you can kinda see it. A little. Sort of? Or maybe not?
But you can definitely see it if you actually hold this card in your hands and look at it — and the shimmery metallic purple color is gorgeous!
