Lots of Glitter


The challenge this week at Southern Girls is to use glitter. Easy Peasy...except I added stickles to my mushroom house and the red ran! Aaaargggghhhh!  So second attempt I used Sparkly fluff and Diamond dust instead . Hence the chunky bits on my mushroom house.  LOL!  The door is covered in Glossy accents, the fairy who lives in here polishes her door regularly...unlike me, I have dog paw and nose prints on mine!

This cool image is another from Make it Crafty....I love these houses!   




 The paper and flowers are Prima and I've distressed and glittered a doily . Believe it or not I found some cute little mushrooms in my stash.....no idea why I bought them but I found a use for them !!!!
 So now, head on over to the Southern Girls challenge blog and see what my talented teamies have been up to, and why not join in our challenge. Don't forget we have two prizes up for grabs. You have two weeks to produce a project with glitter!  Easy Peasy! 

I'm entering this card in the Make it Crafty Challenge which is distressing .

Love this little house! your flowers are fantastic and i can't believe you had mushrooms to match! 'oh and to answer your question, yes, I painted and stickled EVERYTHING! A bit time consuming, but I think the look was worth it and the paint was pretty thin so that dried pretty quickly it was the stickles that took forever.
Have a great day!

Hi Viv, I have heard about you from my friend Tracy and I am so happy I can finally see these gorgeous cards you are making! I just love how you coloured the mushroom but as for the distressing technique my absolute favourite part is the torn paper you distressed and glittered behind the doily. I can just imagine this being used as a treasure map! heehee Thanks so much for joining the Make it Crafty technique challenge. hugs xxoo
