A Touch Of Sparkle ...

As anyone who has read my previous posts will tell you I love glitter and sparkle and it just happens that Jean carries a whole range of products that help me maintain my glittery and sparkly reputation.  Today I want to share with you a little wall hanging project I made

First I stamped this beautiful Lost Coast image and coloured it with my markers

I then stamped another image, cut out the letter 'r', covered it with shimmerz paint and then layered it over the top of the original stamp. Set that aside to dry

Next I took a chipboard minibook that I've had in my drawer for a while in the shape of a postage stamp. The front cover had an inset panel that I removed and I used this as a templete to cut out a panel in another piece using a craft knife. I painted all the pieces with regular scrapbook paint

When it had dried I painted a combination of Shimmerz paints and Pixie Dust Blingz paint all over the front panel and when that dried I used a baby wipe to sponge another layer of Blingz.

I then stacked the three layers of chipboard together to make a sturdy frame, trimmed the stamped image to fit and because it was a slightly different shape to the inset panel I added some strips of patterned paper.  Then I added a row of the dewdrop glass embellishments all around the frame, added a couple of the Kaiser rhinestones to the bottom corner and made a hanging loop with wire and some beads I had in my craft cupboard
