Crafty Gals Corner - Challenge #108 - Add Some Sparkle

It's time for another challenge with us at the

This week we are letting our creative juices flow with
Challenge #108 - Add Some Sparkle

The sponsors for this challenge are:

Faery Ink
Faery Ink   
prize: 3 Digital Images

Star Stampz
prize: 3 Digital Images

Today I have used the Belle Chibi digital stamp from Star Stampz, one of our generous sponsors this week.

Our challenge this week is to "add some sparkle" and I think I went a bit crazy with the sparkle, from layers of sparkling glitter papers to rhinestones and lots of Wink Of Stella.

I coloured the image with Copic markers (details below).
Once dry, I added Clear Wink Of Stella to her dress ... then I thought she would like a sparkling background, so I went around the background with the Wink Of Stella too.
She is wearing sparkling diamond earings and her dress is adorned with sparkling jewels too.

I used a die to cut the sparkling layers framing the image.

Your Favourite Flower (AND WHY)
My favourite flower is the rose.
It's such a beautiful flower, long lasting blooms and usually a delightful scent.
More importantly, they are such a hardy plant that survive in rugged conditions,
need little care and repeatedly reward with wonderful blooms, year after year.
