Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #32 - Glitter

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good week so far. I've made a card for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge where this week the theme chosen by Jane is glitter so I had to do it as glitter seems to have to be on all my cards just about! The image is 'The Handbag' soon to be in the digi shop and it's marker coloured and then stickled in gold and copper. I've cut the image and mat out with nesties labels dies and then sponged the edges with vintage photo ink. There's a little slit at the top and bottom made with a craft knife to thread the ribbon through. Background papers are BG Wisteria paper for the green and BG Bitter Sweet for the chocolate. Added an embossed diamond punched edge and it (looks like I've mis-aligned it now that I see the photo uploaded, oh well!) on the Wisteria and scored a criss cross grid on the chocolate paper. The card blank is pale green pearlescent card which has a lovely shimmer to it and I also doodled some dots around the choc paper with a clear sparkle gel pen just for good measure! I'll add a sentiment later on the right side under the ribbon, not sure who this one is going to yet. Well TFL and have a good day whatever you're doing. Chris x

Hi Chris, love the new image. Where do you find the time? I have been trying to improve my colouring inspired by your beautiful work, but I need a lot more practise. Which markers do you use?
Glad you like my bags, though I only sourced them, they are made by Marge Elliot in Derbyshire.
Kind regards
Mayjasper
