Starting Gun Sounded - And We're Off

That's right - The Sparkle and Glitter, The Rick St Dennis Challenge Blog is now officially open.

Our first challenge is an old favourite of many - ANYTHING GOES but with a twist - It has to SPARKLE and GLITTER.
We are lucky to be sponsored by the lovely Teri, the owner of Delicious Doodles. Teri is being very generous and one lucky winner will get to choose 4 images of their choice from her shop.
The rest of the EDT have worked their glittery socks off and there is an amazing amount of gorgeous inspiration to be seen. We have worked with both the images of Rick St Dennis MFA and Delicious Doodles. Just click on the links to be taken to their shops.

I have done two cards
My first one using a Rick St Dennis image - Elegant Sparkle. This is going to be only available to one of the winners. A Limited Edition.

Coloured with promarkers with touches of gel pen. Would you believe it? Three different coloured glitters. Unheard of for me lmao.

My second card is using Olyvia from Delicious Doodles.

Again coloured with promarkers. This time limiting myself to just white glitter on the image, but the silver embossed swirls and sentiment has some glitter added to the embossing powder.

Ribbon, lace, flowers, gems, feathers and homemade pin all from stash.

Looking forward to seeing all the entries over at our new venture. Please come and say hello

I'd like to enter one or two challenges with these cards
