Allsorts Challenge Saturday - Bring on the Bling

Good Morning to you all,

Welcome to another Saturday and to the Allsorts Challenge day.
I hope that you have all enjoyed a lovely week and have had a share of the gorgeous weather.
Today we have been asked by our lovely team member Helene and she has asked us to show everyone a project using some Bling!

This is a project that we did yesterday in class and all the projects were based around Shrink Plastic.  Well, we did have some fun chasing the shrinking pieces around the table!!

I hope that you can see the Bling! I have sprayed the blue card under the lace panel and the scalloped circle with stick and stay glue and dipped it into my ultra fine glitter, this produces the best glitter card and always matches perfectly with the other card stock that you are using on the project!

The card is a 6" x 6" square so you can see how cute the stamped images are.  The lace is one of Joanna's newest dies and I know this is going to be a favourite of mine so I apologise now for the over use! It is called Harriet and we are very pleased to have them on the website - don't delay if you are interested as they are proving very popular! The bunting die and the flourish are also Signature dies from Joanna.  We also have a 10% discount off all of Sue Wilson dies on the website until midnight tonight just quote the code SUE22 and this will be sorted at the checkout for you.

We used translucent shrink plastic for this card and I stamped two really gorgeous stamps from Stampendous - the Teapot and the cups and saucers in midnight blue Stazon and then coloured the pieces before shrinking with Spectrum Noir pencils - these are a great medium for using on Shrink but you need to remember that you need very little as the colour intensifies when you shrink.

Today we have my gorgeous Neice's birthday party at the shop and so she is inviting 8 of her friends to get crafty so looking forward to this.  I hope that you are looking forward to a lovely weekend.  Don't forget to pop over to the Allsorts Challenge blog to check out the other team members fabulous work and maybe take part to win some fabulous goodies.

Must dash, need to get ready for our little ladies coming in,
Thankyou, as always, for popping in and please leave a comment if you have time, it is always lovely to hear from you.
I will be back on the blog on Tuesday so please pop in,
Bye for now
Jo xx
