SNS Creative Challenge
We want you to use a digi in this month's Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge. Now you can use any digi image you wish, but if you use a Sparkle N Sprinkle digi image from either artist (Michelle Perkett or Beccy Muir), you will receive a free Michelle Perkett digi just for entering. Pretty cool, huh and a great way to build up your digi collection.
I've used Michelle Perkett's Serena, Just Breathe Mermaid. Her skin and hair are colored with Copic markers and her tail is covered with Sparkle N Sprinkle Eggplant and Flaming Orange glitters. The flowers are covered with Sparkle N Soft Mimosa and the leaves have Luau Green velvet glitter on them.
The image is die cut using a Spellbinders nesting die, as is the coffee filter behind her. Using the Coffee Filter/Embossing Powder technique was a really fun way to add texture and shine to this project. In person, it looks like colored wax paper and is quite easy to do and work with. (The tutorial shows how to create flowers with this technique, but I wanted it to look like part of my underwater scene.) I've used Cerulean, Concord, and Amethyst Spray embossing powders.
The panel behind the coffee filter layer was created with the Debossed embossing technique. (Ink up your folder with VersaMark, run it through your die cut machine, then add embossing powder and heat set. The debossed areas from the folder will now be embossed with embossing powder.) Amethyst Spray was used here. The sea shells and anchor are dies from MFT and I've also added a touch of Cloud Nine velvet glitter to them for a touch of sparkle.
You have the entire month of April to play along with us and you know you have a digi (or two) sitting around. So go ahead and enter - you can win some fantastic products from Sparkle N Sprinkle. Link your digi creation at Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenges blog.
