I am back in 'create' mode after spending last weekend at Hobby-X at Gallagher Estates, Midrand, South Africa. I spent some luverly bucks and came home with even luverlier stuff! LOL! can you see the smile on my face - who say money doesn't made you happy?!
Today I am here to share with you a card I made for Bugaboo's Bingo challenge. Here is the Bingo board for you to chose from:
and here is my card using glitter, stitching and a Bugaboo image:
I coloured the beautiful Bugaboo image, called Beautiful Blocks - Life in Color using alcohol markers, and then, using a needle and gold/black machine embroidery thread, sewed across the feathers. (the thread was given to my by my dear friend Irini who sadly passed away 2007. It is from Greece and was given to her by her grandma - it is so old that it's starting to disintegrate and I thought I had better start using it before it rots away completely!) Don't you think that the feathers look like little rainbows?
So that took care of the Bugaboo image and stitching parts.
For the glitter part, I added crystal glitter glue to the butterfly and its trail (perhaps you can just make it out on this detailed pic)
That then took care of the 'glitter' part!
Do you see how easy it is? Click HERE to link to the challenge on the Catch the Bug Challenge blog, add your entry to the inlinkz, and YOU could be the winner of some fabulous Bugaboo images, just like this one.
I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
USE IT TUESDAYS, #39, 'ANYTHING GOES' (the gold/black thread is my hoarded item)
