Bling on an Easel

There are a couple of challenges I really want to join in with this month having a day at home while the plumber sorted out the boiler gave me time to play with a few ideas. This is what I came up with.

Card stock coloured with Alcohol inks yellow, orange and green. Glitter girls fan embossing board provided the shape cut out just a single side using the other half of an A4 sheet to make the easel. Pennyblack stamps T for Transparent 30-032 enjoy life and Transparent 30-024 enjoy. Stamped in black momento and coloured with Sakura glitter pens. A large flatback gem stuck in the oval shape from the board, edges of the fan given a distress stickles coat, it might not show on the photo but it adds glitter in real life. Double sided sticky pad anchors the fan attached to base and covered with gilding flakes.

The challenges this is entered into are:

The Stampman Easel cards. Sorry Jill and co did not use your stamps this time.

Sir Stampalot Bring on the Bling

Penny Black at Allsorts Glitter and Glitz. There is a DT call for the challenge interested designers should just put DT by their name when entering the challenge.
