This Thursday Challenge 10.

Hello everyone

This weeks challenge on This Thursday, its all about is entitled Blings the thing, so we want to see sparkle, shimmer, glitz, metalics anything blingy.

Now I will warn you two of my peices are much more sparkly in real life than in my examples, shame that I could not get the sparkly bits to show up on my photos.

My 1st peice

I wanted to do something that was blibgy yet subtle although the two probably are mutually exclusive, The beads are a lot more sparkly in real life .

My second peice I edged with copper leafing pen, I also edged the grungebaord letters . I added clear sakura glitter over some of the details in each of the papers. . The ribbon is shimmery. So again anopther subtley blingy peice/

However nothing subtle about example 3

I used a terracotta mist over a whit slide mailer. Then silver embossing poweder in various areas and various depths. I stamped the butterfly stamp into the thick area of embossing powder. Then coloured areas with copper leafing pen. I cut 4 strips of friendly plastic and adhered to front of mailer. Then heated, and dragged friendly plastic comb through in three directions

The inside I made friendly plastic corners. Then I cut up sections of friendly plastic in large bits for the top and 3rd slide sections and small bits for the 2nd and 4th sections. Heated and then pulled it around with a needle. Then embedded multi coloured gems and pearls into each section

So that is this weeks examples Hope you like them.

Oh my goodness, each and every one of these is lovely. I really enjoyed seeing something different done with a microscope slide holder. The first piece is very classy. Beautiful work all round.
