Craftyscrapper Challenge #11...

Hi! The new Craftyscrappers challenge is up. With Diwali just around the corner I am sure you have guessed what the challenge is. We want to see your creations for Diwali this time around in our gallery.

Our sponsor for the challenge is:

Participating in the challenge can let you stand a chance to win amazing prizes as defined below:
    • FIRST WINNER: a clear stamp set along with craft goodies.
    • SECOND WINNER: assorted die cuts.
    • THIRD WINNER: assorted embossed cards pack.
This is the card I created for this challenge:

I put rows of thin double sided tape on a piece of white card stock, peeled off alternate backing papers and poured some orange glitter over it. After tapping off the excess and buffing it into the tape, I repeated the process with pale blue glitter. The result is a beautiful, glittery panel. 

I stamped one of the images from the Persian Motifs stamp set by Altenew on some watercolor paper with Versamark and heat embossed with Platinum EP by WOW! I used Abandoned Coral and Broken China distress inks for coloring my image. To add some shimmer on the image, I tried a trick which worked wonderfully. I diluted Metallic Silver acrylic paint by Hobby Ideas and applied a thin coat over the image. This paint is rather watery and dries translucent. It is a great and economical way to add shimmer if you don't have the Wink of Stella pen. Here is a closeup:

The sentiment is from Craftyscrappers. I stamped it with Versamark on a piece of black paper and heat embossed with Platinum EP. 

I adhered the glittery panel to a orange card base that I had in my stash. I cut a circle out of some translucent paper with the X cut Stitched Circle dies by Gina Marie and added it behind the sentiment panel. I trimmed the sentiment panel and adhered it directly to the card base. The colored image was die cut with the coordinating die. I added dimension to it by cutting out four more die cuts from scrap card stock and staking them together. Here is a closer look at the card.

The final touch was the addition of some white half pearls from my stash.

I hope you liked my card and are inspired to create something beautiful. I look forward to seeing your creations in our gallery. Please do visit the Craftyscrappers blog for some amazing inspiration by my super talented team mates.

Entering my card in the following challenges:

I was inspired by the way the colors on the bird echo the colors of the background, the die cut highlighting the focus image and the sentiment on a black strip.
