Let it Shine!

Now, all together, I do hope you are singing the Take That song! 
The title is our new challenge at Try It On Tuesday! Something shining is all we need - the Design Team have been busy and it's definitely worth taking a look at what they have been doing!

Okay, do you want to change song? I have made a card which might help!
I used some Brusho colours onto watercolour paper along with some Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powder - it gives such a great sheen!I added a little stencilling.
This was from the same sheet of paper which I only remembered to
photograph after I had done my stamping!!
I stamped Tracy Easson's Wonky Nellie Ellie stamp onto the paper! I  also stamped her onto some white card that I had coloured (can't remember how  - it's been around a while!)and stuck it on top of the stamped image - that way Tracy's fine details still shows!
I drew in some more grass and flowers and coloured the little hearts with gold pen.
As the top of the paper had mainly yellow on I just stamped my trusty old Rubber Stampede Sun with Archival black ink.
The words from Paper Artsy JoFY set 51 were stamped onto blue card and cut out.

I hope my card will make someone happy!

The Let It Shine challenge runs for two weeks, why not check out the rules and join in?

Thanks for looking, Chrisx

Oh I just love this. So light hearted and fun, what an adorable elephant image! The brushos background is beautiful and the blue palette is so cool and refreshing! A wonderful creation!

Still been working on the patio redesign. I'm installing planters and shelves and moving things around, all in hopes of being able to hide my bird and squirrel food dishes from the complaining neighbours. I feel bad for the poor squirrels, it's like a scavenger hunt every time they come because the dishes are in a new spot. lol. I hope you are enjoying your summer my friend, sending hugs :)

Your card is fantastic - love the colors. And your elephant - so cute! Do you know how to tell if an elephant is in bed with you? You can smell the peanut butter on his breath!!!!

Fantastic take on our theme Chris! I'm sure it will make someone happy!
I have used a stamp on my take- it is a cheap, no-name one.
Lots of hugs!
