Sparkle & Shine Challenge #3

Hey everyone! It's the first of the month which means that it is time for another challenge over on the Sparkle & Shine Challenge blog. The first challenge this month uses this photo as an inspiration piece...

What a cute idea huh?! Love those Peeps around the edge peeking through the glass.  This is the card that I came up with...

I started by smooshing multiple colors of Distress Ink onto a panel of watercolor paper. Then I die cut and stamped the sun. Once that was done I lightly traced the inner edges of the rays onto my background. That provided me with a "guideline" of where to place the sequins. Once I had all of the sequins in place then I adhered the sun with some foam tape to pop it up a bit. 

The colors on this next photo are off because I ended up taking this photo indoors at night, but what I wanted you all to see was the shimmer on the word 'smiling'. After I die cut the letters out of white card stock then I colored them with Copic markers and a Wink of Stella glitter pen.

Make sure that you check out the Sparkle & Shine challenge blog HERE, we'd love to have you participate! 

Distress Inks: Picked Raspberries, Peacock Feathers, Evergreen Bough, Broken China, Ripe Persimmon
Stamps: Papertrey Ink 
Dies: Papertrey Ink (Blue Skies, Headline Alphabet)

Thanks for taking a peek!
