A Touch of Sparkle

Whimsy Challenge this week was "A Touch of Sparkle". One of my favorites! I love to make things shiny and sparkly. This week I used the Lion from Whimsy Stamps. He is colored with Copic Markers and then sprayed with Glimmer Mist. The flowers were airbrushed and then also sprayed with Glimmer Mist. The Rhinestones are from Kaisercraft.

I am really enjoying using my Copic Airbrush system now. I have bought one of the pillar of Prima flowers in just plain white... then I can airbrush them to match the copic colors I use in my images. So much fun. I did end up getting a small compressor from Tower Hobbies.

It is a big day in our household today. Carlie starts Middle School tomorrow and today we get to go into the school, pick up her schedule and meet her homeroom teacher. She is excited and a lil nervous. I am too! Where has the time gone and when did my 'baby' grow up. I'm so proud of her. Jake starts school tomorrow as well, and then Mads starts next week. GASP! No kids at home for the first time in almost 12 years!!! Whatever will a Mama do???

I hope everyone has had a great weekend and is getting done with those back to school preparations. I will have another card for you this afternoon, too. So check back by.
