The Theme at
Add Lots Of Glitter N Sparkle/
A Sparkly Charm

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet who are offering
a $10 Gift Certificate for their store.

Bugaboo Stamps who are offering
7 Images from their store.

Sunsational Stamps who are offering
3 Prizes of 5/3/1 Images from their store.

My Project this
week is:-
Grow Old With Me - 
4 Square Digi Stamp
from Bugaboo
(One of our sponsors)

To begin with I used a Large 20cm Square White Card
which I Cut out the Center of it,
and backed it with Clear Acetate

Next I printed the Image out
  twice on White DC Paper
And coloured them in using my Promarker Pens
Soft Lime
Meadow Green
Leaf Green
Lush Green
Lipstick Red
Berry Red
Raw Sienna
Cool Grey 1
Cool Grey 2
Cool Grey 3

I then cut out the 2 Squares with the Flowers 
on from 1 of the Images.
And rounded the Corners with 10mm Corner Punch

I cut around the edge of the Image with a 1.5cm Border,
Then I used a Flower Patch Corner Punch 
(Martha Stewart)
and along the Edges I used Daisy Lace Edge Border Punch
(Martha Stewart).
I then covered them in Iridescent Glitter Glue
(Glitz It)
to make them Sparkle

Along the Lines in the Image I covered them with
Holographic Silver Strip Peel-Offs
For each of the Squares I added something different
For the 1st one I added Iridescent Yellow Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
to the Center of the Daisy.
and around the Edge I used Tinsel Silver Embossing Powder

For the Second Flower Square I again used 
the Tinsel Silver Embossing Powder
around the edges.
And in the center of the Poppy I used 
Holographic Black Glitter
(Glitter Magic).

For the 2 Squares with Writing I added
Holographic Black Glitter to them.

And for the one with the Bubbles on I added 
Holographic Silver to them
(Glitter Magic)

Once I had done this I backed it on to a 
Sheet of Grey Marbled Parchment Paper
(gifted to me)
and I then left it as a 'loose page'
in the Card.

Along the Left Edge I added a 1cm White Holographic Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery)
using the same Ribbon I Handmade a Bow
which I finished off with a Red Square Gem Brad

To finish off I added 
2 x 1omm Crystal Dotted Rhinestones
and 4 x 5mm Red Dotted Rhinestones
to the Corners.
