A Sparkly Process

Today the Guardian of Glitter was in the lab experimenting with the new sparkle flakes the Lady Commander of Copics and I had recently harvested. She was working on a more stable form of glitter bomb powder...one that wouldn’t explode everywhere with each use. Despite the Lady Commander’s protests that it wasn’t an issue to be finding various flecks of glitter in everything for the next 16 months after using the stuff, I was adamant that a new formula be created. Upon hearing a loud explosion which rocked the entire Guild Hall, I rushed upstairs to ensure the Guardian of Glitter was intact. As I carefully cracked open the lab door, a puff of pink glitter emerged from within. Nikki stood in the middle of the room, her scarf in tatters and hair askew. “Eureka!” she exclaimed, holding up her beaker.  



This was created for the Creative Card Crew’s “Sun Moon or Stars” challenge that is happening now! Create a project using a sun, moon or stars and you could win a $15 gift voucher to Scrapping Center!
 
I started this card by stamping Amelia from The Greeting Farm’s “Fuzzy Wuzzy” set and colouring her with Prismacolor pencils. I then cut the letters out using the Winter Woodland cartridge. The stars I cut using a border off the Artbooking cartridge and chopping it in half so that both halves of the border were bursting out behind the image panel. 
I then cast a spell of +88 sparkle, adding glitter to all the stars on the project. Even the background paper has glittery pink stars on it. (Click the picture to see all the glittery goodness).

On the inside I used the Lawn Fawn “Cozy Christmas” set to stamp the sentiment and added some snowflakes with the “Frosty Friends” set. 

The envelope also got the pink and teal snowflake treatment, leaving some space to write the address in the middle. This holiday card earned me +999 non traditional exp points for not using any red or green, which allowed me to level up (in a non traditional manner of course)!

This Christmas card will sparkle in the following challenges:

Using the sparkle flakes we had acquired from the cavern in Oakmont Glade, the Guardian of Glitter was able to create some new forms of glitter powder bombs as well as some nifty weapon enhancements. I was eager to try them out and not have to worry about having my lungs coated with glitter.

Ah . . . another entertaining adventure from the Crafters Guild. When you have perfected the glitter bomb, let me know as it can get glittery around here. Though everyone does look better with a bit of glitter, I say. Anyway, a very cute card and the sparkles must be stunning in real life. Thanks for playing with CSAYL.
