H2H Challenge - Going Girly!!

Okay - so this weeks really a challenge for me! I typically am not a very girly-girl when it comes to crafting. I tend to like more clean, masculine look and feel to my art. I certainly don't gravitate to 'bling' and 'glitter'. But a few weeks ago my daughter also challenged me with a request for very glittery- girly birthday invites for her seventeeth birthday. So...challenge accepted!

I am a little disapointed this picture doesn't represent how pretty and glittery this card is. But trust's stunning in person!!

I was able to achieve the airbrushed look by creating my own type of glimmer mist using Close to my Heart products! An empty spray bottle, rubbing alcohol, Pearl Paint and reinkers...was all I needed!! I will be back later this week with a step by step tutorial on how to make your own!

But for now, find your frillly, girls side and create a fabulous card or layout and then hop on over to the H2H Challenge blog and share your creation by Sunday night at 10pm for your chance to be chosen as the Fab Friday Five!! You can also check out the other design team member’s incredible artwork for inspiration! The links to each of their sites can be found on the sidebar of my blog.

Love it! You can tell how sparkly the background is.
I haven't tried my own glimmer mist yet, it's on my must do list...
