Simon Says Stamps Challenge DT - Sparkle and Glimmer

Woohoo! Time for another fab challenge at Simon Says Stamps Challenge and this week our challenge is sparkle and glimmer!

The DT are all showcasing Tattered Angels product this week - we'd love for you to use them on your project if you have them but it is not essential! I loved making my project! I have used Tattered Angels glimmer mist of course but also two other products that I didn't even realise Tattered Angels made until I looked in the Simon Says Stamp store!!!

I would also like to enter my creation into the challenge at A Spoonful of Sugar as their theme is anything goes; Totally Gorjuss challenge, who's theme is not square and Papertake Weekly's challenge which is Bloom and Grow!

One of those products is the Tattered Angels mask I have used to create the gorgeous heart shaped lock on my little hanging cushion. I have used Sticky Back canvas and a generous spray of Rose Tea glimmer mist to reveal the gorgeous lacey design of the mask. I added lace around the outside and have sewn two hearts together before filling with cotton wool (LOL all I had to hand at the time).

I have added lots of my favourite things for details: part of a gorgeous Prima swirl; Prima butterfly and my new found favourite - a Tattered Angels key!! I have painted the key with picket fence crackle paint and then covered it in glue n seal so that it doesn't flake off the metal key (which I have to say is working brilliantly and I made this about three weeks ago now!).

I cut some rose leaves with a doohickey die from some more sticky back canvas and inked them with bundled sage and walnut stain distress inks. The ribbon was originally a pale silver and I've altered it with more Tattered Rose glimmer mist. The gorgeous flowers are all by Prima except the rose and rose buds. The beautiful button in the middle of the white flower is by K&Co from their Madeleine collection.

I left the back plain - you can see here the gorgeous detail of the full mask.

Here is the cushion hung in it's new home an iron bedhead.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Simon Says Stamps Challenge! Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the teams gorgeous glimmer creations! Thanks for looking! x
