I keep an eye on the challenge themes at Quirky Crafts. They are, as the name suggests, always a little quirky. I get disillusioned with anything goes challenges - it's not a challenge! I like the fact that you have to work a bit to join in at Quirky's. This week the theme is all white. Tricky, but very fun!
I used modelling paste through a stencil, then compared my Cosmic Shimmer mist and Shimmerz Inklingz. (I've been attracted to Shimmerz but with the postage and the fact I already have some mists I haven't managed to justify buying. But some how these little Inklingz pots made me buy them...) Today was the first play with just one of the colours and compared to the Cosmic Shimmer it hits the mark.
The droplets are mist, the splatty splodges are Inklingz. It looks better in real life than it does in the photos, it's much more shimmery.
I pulled out a few white layers - card, mulberry tissue, grosgrain and satin ribbon and a die cut frame.
I finished off with some sequins, enamel dots and a wood heart painted white. I gave it a coat of shimmer too.
Perhaps the best photo of the shimmer... it really is shimmery! The alphas are glittery white thickers - a favourite that are running low - the i is made from a j!
Thanks for stopping by today!
