Whimsy Challenge: Sparkle!

Another Whimsy challenge is underway over at the Whimsy Stamps Challenge Blog. This week we want to see your cards sparkle! You can bling it up, use glitter, shimmery watercolors or paints - whatever says sparkle to you!

Today's card features one of my favorite Whimsy stamps - the polar bear. It's a 6x6 card this time, and I already had a white square adhered to the card front waiting for completion. I pulled out some scrap snowflake dsp from my scrap tray for the mat under the image, and used one of my snowflake stamps to add some heat-embossed sparkle. I found some kaleidoscope iridescent ep at my local Fred Meyer, of all places, in their craft section. It's hard to see, but the snowflakes are multicolored as you move the card around under light. Plus, I painted the bear with some Shimmerz for more blingy sparkle.

I also picked up a trick from another blog on how to make your image hang out of the frame you're cutting with your nesties. I don't remember which blog, but I know I've seen it on at least two blogs. This stamp is a big image, so learning this trick was a big help for my limited collection of dies.

Now you're off to the Whimsy challenge blog to see more inspiration from the design team, or you can click on their blog links over on the left. Thanks for coming to look at my card, and have a great Monday!
