Fashionable Stamping's 100th Challenge

Over at Fashionable Stamping challenges we are celebrating our 100th Challenge so -

Welcome Everyone To FSC's 100th Posting

To celebrate our success and to say a huge thanks to each and everyone of you fashionable crafters for joining us each fortnight (many from the very first challenge) we are starting this auspicious occasion with a 'Blog Hop'.  There will be prizes on offer to go along with this weeks theme which could only be ...
'Glitz & Glamour'
Even though this will be our first Blog Hop lots of you will already be familiar with the concept.  If not here's how it works, click on the the name below and Hop to the next blog and leave them a comment.  You keep hopping until you have left all the Design Team a comment.
Leaving them a comment is important as each DT member will be doing a draw from comments on their blog's for the chance for you to win their fabulous inspirational make.  As well as one lucky winner receiving the €20 voucher to spend at our sponsor's store.
Below is the name of the DT member where you will Hop to and leave your comment (don't forget to leave one for me lol).  If you get lost you can always pop back to FSC and start over.
We have more news for you.
Starting from today FSC is changing to monthly.  Each challenge will now be starting the second Sunday of the month.
My card for this challenge caused me some issues as while perfect for a celebratory challenge the theme is a bit outside my comfort zone - however not to be deterred I remembered this elegant stamp I won from Craft Stamper some time ago and got to work 
The main image is coloured with a combination of Inktense pencils and H2O's  and is a bit more shimmery than the photo picks up.
 For the background panel I've sprayed with ink sprays and then added some texture with glitter paste through a swirly stencil - again tricky to see in the photo. I've used glitter card for layers and gems and liquid pearls to finish off.

I really hope you join us for our 100th celebration, don't forget to hop and I look forward to seeing your glitzy, glamorous creations....Happy Crafting, Esther xx

  6. Your couple is very Glam so I think you've passed the "out of comfort zone" challenge with flying colours! And just enough Glitz to be glitzy not gaudy... This would make a brilliant Valentine or Anniversary card.
