Humble Pie Challenge: Bling Bling!!

Break out your Stickles, rhinestones, glitter, spritzes, glitter paper...whatever sparkles and shines in your stash, because we are asking for projects featuring lots of bling (at least two different kinds) for the new Humble Pie Challenge this week!


I pulled out this Humble Pie image of Maggie holding a strawberry. I stamped her on Neenah cardstock and coloured her with Copic markers. The papers I used are from the new Basic Gray "Sugar Rush" collection (available now at The Town Scrapper!!). I found this fabulous rhinestone swirl at the dollar store (I do love a good bargain!!). I also used clear Dew Drops which I coated with Christmas Red Stickles. It is hard to see on the picture, but I used a Copic Spica pen to shimmer up Maggie's eyes and also to add highlights to the strawberry.




This sentiment is actually from a digital set from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps ("Cupcake Sentiments")...but I felt it was just perfect for making this Maggie stamp work for Valentine's Day!!
So come and play along with us this week! You could be the lucky winner of a prize from The Town Scrapper, exclusive home to Humble Pie stamps!! Hop on over to Humble Pie to find out more details!

Blessings!

Melanie
