This month's Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge is a color challenge based on the following image from Design Seeds.

I've chosen the new Swirls rubber stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle and tried a new technique (to me) called Blurred Lines technique. You can find the tutorial here, although it's super simple to do. Stamp your image with pigment or dye ink and go around the edges with a damp water brush (or one of those blender pens). I went around the lines as well as on the right side of the heart, using the color from the stamped image to color it in. Can't get much quicker than that! I tried this with several different types of inks and the results are slightly different each time, even if the ink pad is by the same company.
I also added a bit of bling by adhering a strip of 1/4" and 1/8" Tear-ific tape to the side and covering with Navy glitter. For even more sparkle, I die cut a strip of Super Adhesive Sheets with a Lifestyle Crafts border die and the I heat embossed it with Sparkle embossing powder. The cool thing about this embossing powder is that it's basically clear on steroids - lots of glittery goodness added in. So whatever color the background paper is, it will show through - just super sparkly.
You have the entire month of August to play along with our color challenge. I can't wait to see what you create with these fun colors.
