SDC 224 - Sequins

Stampotique Design Challenge this week is,

Valerie has set us a challenge this week use  "Sequins in your project" this is what she said.

"Let's see where your creativity takes you.  Sequins come in every size, shape and colour and can be used in so many ways.  Where will they end up in your project?"

Now I'm not a sequin girl and happen to come across some by pure chance, that's why this project is so late as I was going to give it a miss. However as you can see I made it.

I've given boots a Christmas fairy makeover, pink and sparkly with angel wings and a halo.

Boots was stamped onto watercolour paper and then onto copy paper, the copy paper version was cut out to make a mask and the wings were positioned with a stamp positioner.

The image was then coloured with distress inks pale pink and blue grey, (totally not me).
These colours were chosen because of the colour of the sequins but as you can see I've layered it a few times, the bottom layer was left over from a previous project and has many colours  in it.
A touch of grounding was added and the sequins glued into place.
Tah Dah!

Better late than never.  If you would like to see more pop on over to the Stampotique Challenge Blog.
