DYSU #37 - Silver

Hello all! Well, the weeks seem to just keep flying by...and I cannot believe that it's already time for another challenge at DYSU!  
This week our challenge for you is Silver! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

2 Digital Images

Without further ado, here is my card for this week:

Well, let me tell you...this was a tough one for  me, this week!  I rarely buy any silver or gold (but, especially silver) cardmaking supplies and I was determined to use what I had..also, I was given this sweet image by Digi Darla to use so, I had to make it all come together nicely..So, I scrounged up what I had....silver glass glitter and this beautiful ribbon flower with a jewelled center which I thought would accent the glass glitter nicely...
I printed the digi onto Neenah cardstock and coloured it in with grey Copic markers...I then went over the wings, halo, harp, shoes, and waistband with Smooch Illuminate Top Coat to add some shimmery highlights.  Next, I cut out the image with Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 20, being careful to cut around the parts I wanted to go outside of the frame and then flipping those parts over the backside of the frame so as not to cut them off.  I used the Spellbinders die as a stencil and sponged the image with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Old Paper.  Next I cut out the next biggest Labels 20 on white cardstock and coated it with the SU! Glass Glitter in Silver.  From there it was quite easy.  I used a patterned paper from Crate Paper on the background, making sure to sponge the edges with the same Distress Ink then assembled the card.  If you would like to know the specifics on the supplies that I used, please look at the bottom of this post for a detailed Supply List.

I really hope that you will come and join us this week at DYSU, I'd really love to see what YOU would do to incorporate SILVER into your project!
