New Challenge LHOSM 'Sparkle'

Hello my lovelies,
I hope you are all well and having a lovely relaxing Sunday. Phil and I were supposed to be heading off the Peak District for a couple of days this morning, but due to the storms we are expecting we have cancelled, never mind I will just have to stay indoors and craft instead J
Anyway enough mumbling, and on to the task in hand, we have a new challenge at LHOSM, and the theme this week is to see some sparkle. We are sponsored by the lovely
Ribbon Girls.

I had a good look through my crafting boxes, but didn’t really have a sparkly embellishment so I decided to go with Glamour Dust and ended up making a right mess. I have used two of the luscious new stamps from the new Winter Wonderland collection called ‘Puppy Love Tilda, I have masked her with the Peaceful Christmas Tree, which I have stamped 3 times and sprinkled some Glamour Dust over them .  Tucked behind the image is some cheesecloth.  As always I have coloured the images using Copics and a few highlights have been added using Prisma Pencils. All the embellishments, ribbon, pearls and Lace are from the Ribbon Girl, please see below for a list of the materials used.  I took the centre out of the Daisy and replaced it with a flat back pearl, covered it in glue and sprinkled some Glamour Dust over it. I wanted to add some colour to the rose which started off as cream so I coloured it with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink before covering it with Glamour Dust. Just peeking out to side of a flowers is my favourite Magnolia Swirl die.   More Glamour Dust has been added to the trees and to the Slender Firs which is a Magnolia DooHickeys Die.

 Copics I used:
Skin: E31, 21, 00, 000, R31
Hair: T8, 6, 4, 2, 0
Dress: R89, 85, 83
Present: W7, 5, 3, 2, 1,
Trees: C3, 1, 0. E44, 43, 42, 40

 Background: W5, 3, 2, 1, 0

 Pencils: Dark Umber, Black

 I hope that you will join us in our challenge to be in with chance of winning such a wonderful prize.
Thank you for popping in.

  1. Oh my goodness Gina, this is just beautiful honey!!!!! I was laughing at your comment about making a mess, I managed to blow half of my frantage out of the pot I store it in, with the heat gun, last week and I can tell you, that was a right mess hee hee! Anyway, I love what you have done with the rose! It looks amazing! Actually the trees are fab too, I love your beautiful colouring and the masked image is fantastic. Take care. Cuddles Jay xxx
