Furry Friends GDT Card for Gingerloft Challenge

A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate enough to have this card selected as one of the top three over at the Gingerloft Challenge and as a result the lovely Tami asked me if I'd be interested in being GDT for this week. Of course I said yes!

This weeks theme is Furry Friends and I've chosen to use an image from the Gingerloft Store called Fairy with Unicorn. I hope you like what I've created for your inspiration and will look forward to seeing your entries. This post is a little photo heavy cos I've tried to capture all the sparkle and shimmer, remember if you want to see the images larger, just click on them.

Taken with a flash to show shimmer

I started of by colouring the background of the image with Distress Ink, I then coloured the fairy and unicorn with Promarkers and made them pop a little with some stickles. The whole image has then been blasted with Diamond Glimmer Mist.

Taken in natural light to show depth of colour

The BP was created using Distress Inks and Glimmer Mist. I stamped the sentiment from Sweet Pea Stamps directly onto the card using Stazon.
