It's the first Wags N Whiskers Challenge

Today is the first ever Wags N Whiskers challenge. This week the challenge is being hosted by Karen and it's called Make 'em Sparkle.

I chose to use Zoe and Gemma's Snow Fun. I stamped it on Neenah Solar Crest White Ultra Smooth Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copics. I painted over many elements of the image with Shimmerz to add depth and sparkle. Both Zoe and the snowman's hat were coated with Marvy Liquid Applique and glitter before being heated and puffed up. I also added lots of Flower Soft Polar White to the ground for sparkly snow. I added random sparkly spots to the image panel and white ferns behind the snowflake with Stickles Icicle and added a tiny gem to the center of the Martha Stewart punched snowflake. The glitter card stock is Doodlebugs, the tree design paper is MME, and the final pink mat is Basic Grey. I had some sewing machine issues, but forged ahead! So, just ignore any imperfections, ok?

Head on over to the Wags N Whiskers blog and check out the challenge and join in the fun! Have a great day!

Another work of art! The sparkle is perfect! I was told one time (and I've never forgotten it) that imperfections make the card just that much more enduring! Then I apply my own logic. . .imperfections in coins for example make them sky rocket in what they are worth. So there, your card is super! Best, Curt
