Gloss and Sparkle


I had made this card last week but didn’t post it at the time. The red border is very sparkly but I can’t make it show on the photo and I tried 3 times. The ladybugs also have glossy accents on them and there is sparkle around the butterflies too but no luck in making it show up on the photo so you will just have to take my word for it. I used a stamp set from GKD and distress oxide inks to stamp the images then I coloured the ladybugs using my Inktense pencils. Added the glossy accents for shine and dimension. I masked off the ladybugs so I could add the butterfly images before adding the glossy accents. It works for this challenge as it is CAS and sparkly.

    1. Thanks – I originally tried this for a different challenge and then realized I hadn’t followed the rules. Figured I could use it eventually if I waited to post.


  1. It’s beautiful! It’s so difficult to get a good picture showing the sparkle and shine, even out in sunlight where you think it will definitely show. It’s a very fun card, too.

  2. Such a cute design with the row of wonderful springtime winged visitors! You’re definitely not alone in having trouble with sparkle showing in photos, but it seems as though some on the butterfly wings is visible. Thanks for sharing your cute card with us at The Paper Players!
