Bloggers' Challenge #35 - Color Combo


Whew...Purely Pomegranate, Brilliant Blue and Old Olive...colors that I would never put together on my own! A true challenge! But, I am happy with how it turned out! I was also excited to try out the new Fine Cosmos glitters I received in my last order. The picture really does not give you a good image of how much the paper GLITTERS! It is very sparkly in person...a lot like our Dazzling Diamonds, except in color! Woohoo!

To make the "glitter paper", I laid down lines of Sticky Strip on Purely Pomegranate cardstock, then poured Rose Pink glitter on top and shook off the excess. I stamped the butterfly with Purely Pomegranate ink on Glossy White cardstock and cut out...very vibrant! I used dimensionals to pop it up a little.

These challenges are so much fun...I love how they stretch me creatively! Enjoy!

I love the glittery paper you created. Using sticky strip to get straight, even lines is a great idea!
