Dazzling Diva Challenge #57

Hey! A new year..a new challenge. I’ve not half struggled getting back into the swing of it all. Wednesday means the challenge is up..and it’s this inspirational photo.
I went a little mad!
To make this I’ve used Golden Glimmer, and used a file from the Silhouette online shop.

Golden GlimmerIt took a little while to construct. First I cut out the Glimmer Gold with my Silhouette Cameo. I then backed it with some acetate to give the front of the card some stability. I traced some similar sized circles so I could create a back piece for the shaker part. For the stamping I’ve used some Winnie & Walter stamp sets; The Big, The Bold & You and Big, Bang, Bling.

I stamped the sequins and the sentiment before adding foam pads around the outside. Sprinkle in some glitter, mini-beads and sequins and stick it to the back of the inside of the clock. Then I simply cut out the outline of the shape in black cardstock and attached it to the top of the clock so the card could stand up.

I used my new light tent that I got for my Birthday- and despite it only being an iphone and I’ve still got to tweak the set-up, it’s not done badly considering it was pitch black outside.

Back to the challenge!challengepicDo join in..it’s simply an inspirational challenge- whatever inspires you from the picture. Link up here– it would be great to see how you can use metal craft sheets, but it’s not a requirement. Just add the tag Dazzling Diva Challenge #57 if you’re linking up from an online photo gallery or simply link up your blog. There’s a $15 voucher up for grabs- so get creating.


Winnie and Walter are having a big Birthday bash over at their blog here
I’ve added this into the sketch challenge.
See the circles and the two banner shapes- they look a little like clock hands don’t they!!!

I’ll be back soon xx
