The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Let The Sparks Fly

Hi everyone!  It's time for another challenge from The Sisterhood of Crafters.  Darlene is our host this week and she has challenged us to "let the sparks fly" on our projects.  So, grab those sparkles and glitters to show us how you let the sparks fly!

Sometimes you just can't get a decent photograph no matter what you try.  That was the case with this photo.  You can't see the glitter and sparkle but, I assure you, they are there.  I'm thinking I may need some new bulbs for my lamps or my digital camera is slowly giving up.  I've had it for quite some time.  Anyway, the bow has glitter on it and when the light hits it, it gives this little sparkle.  The gold rectangle is cut from glitter paper but the kind that is smooth and doesn't rub off.  I like that.


Stamp Set:  Thankful Life (Stampin' Up!); Ink:  Elegant Eggplant; Cardstock:  Elegant Eggplant, Sugar Cube; Patterned Paper:  Glizty Glitter Cardstock Stack (DCWV), Golden Grove (KaiserCraft); Other:  Glitter Ribbon, Stitched Rectangle Stacklets (Taylored Expressions), Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (Stampin' Up!), Tear Drop Circles (Spellbinders)

  1. Beautifully crafted Marsha! Yes, it's very difficult to photograph the sparkle in our creations! Sounds like you a new camera or lights might be a good think to ask Santa for! LOL Happy Day my friend ... hope you are well ... thinking of you!

  2. Very pretty! What a wonderful sentiment, too. I'm sure that this card is even more beautiful IRL. Quite often if I use something sparkly on my cards, I will try a photo at an angle so it can catch the light better. Have a great day!!

  3. One can just imagine the sparkle coming off that awesome card Marsha! Sometimes to get that sparkle on camera, I take the pic at night, tilt the card and let the light shine on the bits that need to be highlighted. Hugs Gwendolyn
