BasicGrey Challenges 30 - Sparkle

Hi everyone, hope your weekend is off to a good start. A new challenge on BasicGrey challenges today which is Sparkle and also it's the announcement of our new DT members Christine, Gio, Lou and Sandra so welcome to you all girls, it's great to have you with us! There's some wonderful inspiration from my DT friends for the sparkle challenge and a great prize from our sponsor Simon Says Stamp so I hope you can join us.

I've made a little canvas which has some BG Wassail paper for the background, a Crafty Individuals printed image from a Christmas pad, some metal corners, gems, paper poinsettia flower and lace, then a layer of beeswax coated in perfect pearls for more sparkle.

Enjoy your Saturday and thanks as always for your lovely comments.

So you have been hard at it over your new melt pot then ?!!! Wow, this is just gorgeous and what a fantastic and different technique. Love the image you have used, very vintage looking.

Can't believe we were there this time last week - how time flies.
