Lucy's Challenge #4 - glitter



My HA Flickr friend Lucy is holding a challenge at the moment and it involves "glitter".  So I made a card, using her method for stitching, (see video here) her style of card and design.  Just wanted to practice! so entering it into her challenge.


Supplies Hero Arts Anytime Messages CL129, Hero Arts Digital kits Winged Friends and Flutterbies,
MME Wild asparagus 6x6 cardstock, Kraft cardstock, machine stitching, copics, pop dots and stickles.

I made a batch of these butterflies and winged friends a little while ago and added Ranger Industry Stickles for the glittery goodness. 

I also used the tip that Kathy Racoosin gave in her blog on the 3 November last year (Tuesday Tipster) which was to run a black marker down the edge of the cut image to get rid of the white.  It really does work a treat (see top photo) and I do it on all the cut out digital images that I use.. Thanks Kathy!.

Lucy - thanks for the amazing daily inspiration.  Thanks everyone for stopping by.  Hope you all have a great week.
