Glitter and Chipboard at Heart Song Inspiration

for my Party Time Tuesday post, please click here.

I love this new challenge over at Heart Song Designs Inspirations this week - use glitter and/or chipboard on your papercraft projects. Leah has so many wonderful images that are perfect for this challenge! and of course she has a cute freebie available if you would like to grab it over on the blog.....

I have been trying to get better about using some of the amazing papers in my long neglected stash.... yes, you could also say 'hoarded' stash, 'cause my precious Daisy D's are included in that... sigh.... I still miss that company SOOOOO much..... anyhow, I decided it was time to pull out some of the Basic Grey 12x12 Phoebe papers that I have been saving for goodness knows what, but oh my, they are pretty to look at! ;)
I watercolored the bird song image, outlining the flowers in shimmerz paint. the music notes were also painted with shimmerz. a tiny bit was added to the bird's wings. stickles dot the flower centers. the chipboard bird & flowers were inked and then covered in stickles for some extra sparkly shine. a touch of stitched ribbon, some dew drops, and SU! rub-on senti finish the card. simple, but I think fun!

do stop by the Heart Song Inspirations blog to see the other projects created by the fabby DT! and then add your own creation to mr. linky! :)

Fabulous card Jennifer!! I love this image, and your watercolouring is great! And you're right... Stickles and Shimmerz are the way to do glitter lol! I only have a couple of Stickles, and neither of them were pink grrr!
BTW... I recognize those red embellishments my fellow Brave Girl! ((Hugs))
