A bit of sparkle….well I kinda run with that theme and ended up with a lot more sparkle than I had planned !

I have seen a few people doing the technique of reverse colouring (not sure if that is what it is called, but it is what I am calling it ) And thought I would give it ago.

I stamped some of the beautiful flowers from the More Spring Flowers Stamp set, masking some off to create floral bouquets in the opposite corners. I had planned to use white embossing powder but decided to mix things up and use gold instead.

I then took my Mijello Mission Gold Watercolours and watercolored around each arrangement, I thought the yellow and orange would work well together. I painted quite intensely and added a few layers around the flowers to make them pop.

I was going to leave it there, but me being me decided to add some grey “shading” to the flowers and leaves.

I then die cut Simons Painted Kindness die several times from Neenah card and one from some glitter card and adhered them together to add some dimension.

This, I thought was going to my “Bit Of Sparkle” but I then decided to add some thin black strips of card along the edge of the piece, and then just decided to add some glitter card strips…hey whats some more sparkle right ?

I then added MORE sparkle by adding some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen and Some Studio Katia Clear Droplets.

And there we have my Bit Of Sparkle card 🙂
