Crafty hands DT - Sparkle and Bling

Good morning everyone, hope you're all well.

First of all, the birthday celebrations yesterday went fabulously, and I will be back later with a little more about that.

But for now, I am here with my CraftyHands DT post. There were loads of stunning entries for the last challenge, which was "vintage" and I'm hoping the current challenge will produce equally gorgeous results. We're looking for "Sparkle and Bling". Now I know you're all brilliant at that one!

Tonya at CraftyHands is providing the prize for this challenge, and look at the lovely goodies you can win!

Now, for my project I decided to try something a little different. So I started off with a blank coaster/beermat, and set out to make a wall decoration.

First of all I covered the coaster in pink and green iridescent paper, then added a LOTV mermaid image I'd coloured and fussy cut.

I then added a frame cut from rainbow miri board

And finally a cluster of flowers in the corner and a purple and green ribbon for hanging it with. Naturally, the mermaid's scales and wings needed the Stickles treatment too...

Due to the nature of this project (as in, the whole thing sparkles and glitters), it has proved impossible to photograph properly... It's actually very colourful, and not as dark as the pictures suggest.

Ok ladies and gents, now it's your turn! Go grab your glitter and dust off your gems and make us something that sparkles!

My fellow DT and I are looking forward to visiting you, so make sure you go see the beautiful makes they have prepared for you before you get stuck in.

May your day sparkle!
