TLC287, My Flower Sparkles

Well it's been a few days since I posted. Been way to busy lately with life things and not fun things. I have although made a very lovely birthday card for my hubby which I'll have to take pic's of and post. Hopefully by this weekend. I think I'll lock myself up in my craft room and have food brought to me this weekend LOL, LOL. This card above I did for an SCS challenge this week that I couldn't resist. It's Sparkle Stained Glass technique. It's quite easy except for all the waiting for sections to dry before moving to the next color of glitter. I suppose more experienced glitter guru's can master this without waiting out the drying time. I stamped the design with Stazon and then filled in little sections of crystal effects and sprinkled glitter. For the flowers I used a toothpick to spread out the crystal effects in the center so I could use a darker pink and then a lighter pink for the edges. I also used two different greens on the leaves. I made a mistake :( on SCS when describing how many colors I used on the flowers as it was actually four. I didn't have lace to match and liked this white lace so I made a concoction of alcohol ink and what I stamped on the lace and mushed in a small bowl with water. Turned out looking like tea dyed, might have just been easier to get a tea bag outta the kitchen huh :). Thanks for looking.
