Intergalactic Sugar Skull

Greetings! Today I'm sharing a card with what may be my favorite Sparkle Blend from the April 2018 release. It's called Intergalactic, and its filled with teals, purples, blues, and hot pinks. Some of my favorite colors! It's got regular sequins, stars, opalescent gems, tiny beads, and lots of other bits that you'll love looking at. I decided to make a shaker out of one of my all-time favorite Sugar Skulls. It's from Dilly Beans and if you've been a long-time follower of mine, you may recognize it. I thought the eyes would make great shakers.

If you'll notice, the right eye is right at the edge of the drawing, so I opted to cut a border around it so that I had room to apply my foam to close the shaker correctly. I kept the edge wavy to work with the wavy edge of the digi. I colored the image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I chose colors that matched very close to those in the Shaker Blend.

For my card background, I used Rose Bud Fireworks! Spray and Tuxedo Black irRESISTables spray for some added dimension and shine. I also used some corrugated turquoise colored cardstock, which I tore on top. I also used a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp set called CZ Designs Simple Sentiments No. 1. I love that set because it has a lot of funny and sometimes snarky phrases. 

The Intergalactic Sparkle Blend is a real beauty. The colors are so bold and I love the varying mix of round sequins, stars, crystals, and beads. Remember, you can only get Sparkle Blends at White Rose Crafts LLC, and each blend is Limited Edition. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
