Simon Says - Sparkle !!

We. the DT are this week showcasing Whiff of Joy stamps and also heat embossing. So, if you have any Whiff of Joy stamps and have the equipment for heat embossing, we would love to see them but its not conditional for this challenge.

I used  Willow with lamp - I love this image so much, she is so beauitful!!! I coloured her with Copics, stamped and heat embossed the edge with a Magnolia snowflake stamp in silver then inked the edge with Broken China distress ink and finally edged it with silver stickles.
The papers are from Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby Paper pack and the corners stamped with an old corner stamp of unknown origin. Behind the image is a piece of white vellum stamped with a Tim Holtz script stamp and again heat embossed with silver powder. The ribbon is some I picked up from my local market whilst in the UK,  the silver 'things' in the corners I picked up at the NEC and  the beautiful flower is by Prima.

Products used from the Simon Says Stamp store
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Vintage Shabby Paper pack
Silver Stickles
Prima Flowers

As usual the lovely Heidi will be giving the lucky winner a shopping spree of $25 (P&P free) in the Simon Says Stamp Store  Check out the "New In" page - you won't know what to spend your money on first !!!

The embossing is beautiful & I love that snowflake edging with the inking. The flower is quite stunning & sort of glows - draws the eye towards the lantern - don't ask me how but it does. I just love all the detail.
