Sparkle n Shine

     Time for one more Progressive Challenge, this time for The Outlawz.  The image was drawn by Sandra VanBlaricum, a member of the Outlawz team.  Thanks, Sandra!

     I colored with ProMarkers, added both gold and silver glitter, then cut the image with a simple, square die from Spellbinders.  I used gold paint pen to ink the edges of the image.  The green, metallic paper is a recycling effort - those are candy wrappers which I deliberately rolled up and unrolled, then smoothed out using just my fingers because I wanted the wrinkle lines.

     Everything is mounted onto a confetti CS card base and I added one of my hand sewn bows.  The bow was originally done using white ribbon but I 'dyed' it with marker to get the gold color to match the bows on the baubles.
