There is a new challenge blog on the block at J & C Creations and for their first monthly challenge they are asking us to use glitter. Now, before I discovered promarkers I never stamped and coloured, however there are very few cards I make now that don't feature a stamped image. So I thought it would be nice to have a change. This card features a layered glittered medallion in my favourite colour - pink! This technique was taught in the the first and only card-making class I ever took and after buying all the stuff (as you do!) it was good to get it all out and get messy! As usual, I wasn't impressed with my photo, the pink is quite salmony, but my actual card is more fuchsia pink, but you get the idea!
