Simon Says Stamps Challenge DT - Party!

Well, I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas!! We certainly did! Our children were overwhelmed with their presents and fell asleep exhausted from all the playing on Christmas night LOL! As it is that time of year when there are parties left, right and centre (if you're lucky - personally I haven't been to a single party! - that's being a SAHM for you LOL!) our challenge this week at Simon Says Stamps challenge is Party!! The DT are showcasing glimmer mists and glitter this week so if you have some we'd love to see it!! We have once again been given the most fabulous prize from our lovely boss Heidi of a $50 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp store for the lucky winner!!!

I have my lovely hubby to thank for my creation today!! I was sat at my craft desk umming and ahhing about what to make for the challenge when he plopped a bottle of Prosecco on my desk and said "decorate that, people drink at parties!!" LOL! Of course the rest of the ideas are mine :). Bubbling Tilda came to mind straight away!!! - bubbly! - OK so Prosecco isn't champagne strictly speaking but it is certainly bubbly!! I cut out several plain and scalloped ovals with my nesties to create the shape of the bottle tag. The paper is from Basic Grey's Cappella paper pad.

I have coloured Tilda with copics and added stickles to her wings and the bubbles and sprayed the entire image with pearl glimmer mist.

The swirl is a Magnolia Doo Hickey swirl and the bubbles were cut from acetate with circle nesties, sponged on the edge with white stazon and smothered in stickles.

The word "bubbly" was cut from white coredinations cardstock using Tim Holtz' vintage market die, inked on the edges with walnut stain distress ink, and the dots are gold liquid pearls. The chiffon bow was made with ribbon from my stash. No fancy angled shot today - bit difficult with a bottle LOL! Hope I've inspired you to join us this week! Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the teams' gorgeous creations! Thanks for looking! x
