ATC theme this week is 'bling' which immediately made me think of using diamond glaze & glamour dust (I love the sparkle and dimension you get with this combo) so looked through my stamps to see what I could use and this big bow on the magnolia present just shouted out to be 'blinged' up LOL.
So nice and simple, just paper pierced the wrapping with a bit of scrap dp, coloured the bow as normal with a red promarker before adding the diamond glaze and glamour dust over it. Then the background looked a bit bare so I coloured a pale blue circle around the present as a sort of spotlight then stamped some random snowflakes around the edges. Inked the edge in red before matting onto an ATC sized bit of silver mirri card. then just in case that wasn't 'blingy' enough i added a few more gems to finish! The 'no peeking' written with ATB tape writer using a strip of scrap coredinations card which after sanding still didn't stand out enough so I went over the letters with a brown pen. Punched ends with SU word window punch.
Talking of ATCs I received one back from the swap that Shary hosted a few challenges ago - and I received Maria's cute one in the post yesterday, which you can see on her blog here! It was fun, would love to know who got mine!
