Crafting Musketeers December Challenge #20 – ‘Use Bling’


Hi Everyone

MJ here and hoping that you get to read this and enter this fab challenge.  I have been having Blogger probs but looks like it’s sorted now…..woo hooo!

So this month’s challenge is to use bling so get all those glitzy, shiny embellishments out and go for it!  The more bling the better…..or is that just me? x

This month has been sponsored by the lovely Jackie Western at Party Nights Creations 



Here is a little bit about them.

" We make good quality, affordable wedding stationery, greeting cards and jewellery.
Please check out the blog for further details and if I can be of any assistance then please just give me a shout!   "

Here is the prize , which will also include some die cuts and gems and a bit of ribbon.



I fancied a little colouring for this challenge so decided to use the Crafters Companion Scruffy Little Kat stamp range together with my Spectrum Noir Pens and pencils (which I would be lost without!).

I stamped the image in Memento ink and coloured her in.  The list of pens I used will be at the bottom of this post.


Dec 14 Bling Challenge


I took an 8” x 8” white card, matt and layered with centura pearl card and a printed backing paper from Scruffy Little Kat CDRom that matched bubbles on stamp.  Then I die cut the image with a matching back panel.  I added a punched border wrapped with ribbon and glued all elements to front of card.  To finish (and this is my bling) I stuck some aqua coloured gems in the bubbles of the stamped image.
