Imagination Crafts Challenges

Hi Folks
Hope you have all had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend.  The weather looks as though it is going to be pretty poor this weekend so lots of crafty time planned.  

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Imagination Crafts Challenges.  Our theme for this month is:
Love Is In The Air

Don't forget that to be eligible to win the prize of a £40 voucher to spend at Imagination Crafts you must use at least 1 Imagination Crafts products on your creation.  All entries are eligible for the honour of being chosen for a Top 3 spot.

Here is my inspiration project using the Flourishes stencil, sparkle medium and glossy card from Imagination Crafts.

I used the gold sparkle medium with the stencil on both gold and red glossy card.  When it was dry I cut some heart shaped apertures out of the red card.  This was then matted onto the gold card ensuring that the pattern of the stencil matched up.  I did leave the red card slightly raised to add dimension.  This was then matted onto white and then gold mirror card.  A rose, bow and some heart shaped gems finished off the card.

Here is another view where you can see the dimension (hopefully).

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your creations.  Just pop over to Imagination Crafts Challenges to enter.  Don't forget to check out the gorgeous creations from my teamies.
