All that Glitters & Shines...

..yes my latest card creations are all about glitter, gold and all that sparkles! My parents celebrate their 5oth Wedding Anniversary next weekend and I wanted to make a card that highlights how special a Golden Wedding Anniversary is. I used the "only" wedding stamp I own - Tilda & Edward the Loving Couple from Magnolia's Wedding Collection 2010 and combined it with lots of metallic gold paper and some fairytale rosebuds to which I added a little Crystalina Kindyglitz - I'm actually pretty pleased with the finished product ;)- what do you think??

I usually use my warm gray copics for background shading but this time I used them to colour the brides dress and they worked a treat... came up with the antique "off white" look I wanted to create

I also splashed around a lot of KindyGlitz on this card too! - this stamp is a new one, added to my collection a couple of weeks ago - she is Brigitta on a Tree Stump a Swiss Pixie from C.C. Designs - the white card I made from Quill's Galaxy Board in Galactic White it has a glitter finish to it. It is a little hard to see in the photograph but it does glisten & shine in the light - I love it!
The copic colours I used were inspired by some other examples I have seen using this stamp and the bright coloured Prima flowers sitting on my shelf. The Thankyou Stamp is from Stampin' Up's Oval All collection and I used a scallop punch to cut it out. I added rhinestones to my flower embellishments, then coated with a bit more Kindyglitz - maybe I over did it with the glitter?? - LOL!! but whenever I think of fairies - I think glitter!!
