“Secret Love”

Secret Love

I was asked, for the first time ever, to be a guest designer by
They surprised me with an email inviting me to be their GD
for the texture challenge (with a twist of glimmer/shine).
I gave this serious thought…like for 2 seconds…
then jumped at it with both feet!!!
I am really loving the texture of corrugated card at the moment and this time 
after covering it in tissue tape I gave it a light gesso wash…
I will definitely be doing this again as it makes a gorgeous background.
Then some torn and ripped papers, 
embossing and grunge paste make up the rest of the texture.
There is a little ink on the papers but I liked the way the colours played off each other,
so I haven’t added a lot.

The glimmer is on the heart, the beads, metal and rhinestones.
The heart is made up of an image stamped onto tissue paper and glued on,
embossed on one side with glossy accent highlights
and pearl glimmer mist sprayed over the top.
I just thought I would add this pic to show the glimmer on the heart piece.
Pop on over to the C2CU blog and be inspired by this months challenge –
the team have some awesome inspiration to share!
It is such an honour to be involved
and I thank the team for the opportunity to do something different.
Enjoy!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges…
