Do You Stack Up Challenge #12 Shine On!

Do you see the shine and sparkle in this little snippet picture?  I went all out with the glitzy stuff on this card.  But more about that later.

It is time for another challenge over at Do You Stack Up!  And we want to see SHINE!  You know, glitz, bling, sparkle, shimmer, and I think you get the idea.

One of our sponsors for this week is Digi Doodle. They have got all kinds of images and even freebies at their shop.  They are offering a $10 Gift Certificate to their store.

Our other sponsor for this challenge is Digi Stamp Characters by Heather Ellis.  Heather has a shop on Etsy full of sweet characters of her imagination.
Heather is offering the winner three images of their choice from her shop.

Finally, I get to show my card!  I used the Whale from Digi Doodles.  I flipped the image once and made it smaller so the bigger whale would have a buddy.  Gosh, I'm so thoughtful....Ha!

The whales are paper pieced and look a bit grayish or greenish in the photo, but that's not the case.  I painted iridescent medium on top of the pattern paper to give the whales lots of shine.

The water background was painted using several different shades of blue acrylic paint.  One was a metallic blue.  I put some seaweed and coral in my seascape with two different green shades of Stickles.  The challenge is for Shine and everything I used on this card shines!  Even the 'bubbles'!

Lots of you love the glitter, so we are really hoping to see lots of entries this week.  I hope you have looked at the Design Team's work for inspiration as they have worked hard on this challenge.  Please give the challenge a try because we have some great prizes and you can't win if you don't enter!

Darling card. You could get a photo, text, photo if you tried on blogger - sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, so go figure! Anyway, I make one small and located on left, one small and located on right, then drag them up. You seem to have to add them individually for it to work. I am still learning about blogger!
