Glitter & Bling Challenges

I like a little bling, a little glitter here and there.  So this project fits two challenges that are going on right now.

From Smudgy Antics - GLITTER and GORE
From Left of CenterBling It Up / Sparkle

Who could ask for such a fun challenge?  The Designer Teams at each blog have some superb projects that you must check out!  Get over there, find your creative bone, and join the challenges.

I tried to glitter it up without getting too out of hand.  I hope this is gorey enough, think I got the glitter and bling/sparkle part. 

So grab your beverage, relax, and pop some "eye" candy....


This is an 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" scrapbook page.  Base is Basic Black card stock from Stampin' Up! (SU!)

I used Versa Mark and a hand print stamp from Smeared Ink Rubber Club, that is in a set called Prints offered in March Rubber Club.  I then heat embossed with Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder (SU!).

I spritzed Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angles and Red Mulberry from Maya Mists onto Glitter paper along the top.  Then let the mists dribble down for effect.

Saying is written with Signo White Pen.  I spritzed finished page with Pink Pirouette Smooch Spritz.  There are rhinestone jewels in upper left and lower right corner.  I used a black Sharpie to make darker.

Appetizers are Rick St. Dennis from a digi called Zombie - Soft Centers.  I re-sized image to enlarge heart box (4" x 6") and then printed onto Neena paper.  Copics used to color in and then fussy cut.

I did use Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter (SU!) on the eyeballs.  On the organs, I used a Versa Mark Pen and then heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.

For the wine glass, I used Oval Framelits (SU!) to cut out the shapes on Vellum card stock.

I used Bravo Burgundy and Elegant Eggplant markers (SU!) to color in the blood.  Then smeared Crystal Effects over liquid and added Dazzling Diamonds.

Wine marker ring is a stamp from Inkadinkado from a set called Creepy Creatures Cling.  Copics to color, Crystal Effects with Dazzling Diamonds, and rhinestone jewels for eye centers on skull.
