CHALLENGE #36 Add Sparkle with Aurora Wings

Eewwie  I love using Aurora Wings Digis.  They are elegant, sexy, dramatic and give so much playability for the artiste.  Do you like to use them?  If so, what do you like about them.  It is so wonderful how different we all are as creators, that we gleam different advantages from each digi that we are blessed to use.

This week, in addition to a great digi - my fav - SPARKLES!  Wahoo.  I get sparkly curly hair for a week. It looks like I've been at the Glitz, or some very glamourous event - rather than sitting in my studio arting and sewing my little heart out, our out in my back 40 plowing away my field or digging up sumacs or chopping down cherry trees (literally!) haha

So this week my lovlies, let us see your gems, your sprays, your glitter - anything that will make your creation shine and be totally exciting and exhilerating!  Pop it over to LOC and I will see you there.  Take a look at the Design Team - they are particularly awesome at their craft.  I know you will get so many inspiring mojoness from them.  Don't be afraid to sneak off a few ideas from their/my card...that is what we are here for - to help inspire, motivate, give your eyes some sparkle and your soul some excitement!  I hope we accomplish it this week!  See you there cuz I LUVVVVVV giving praise, seeing your flair and learning from YOU!

QUICKIE GLUE (That I outlined entire image with and then put on the following rub on Sparkles)

TUBE SPARKLES: (From Stash that I got at a small art store in a country town.  This technique can be done with any sparkles or glitter.  You outline any line with the QUICKIE GLUE and wait for it to dry.  Lick (yuk perhaps) your finger and dip gently into sparkles and rub sideways over the glue.  It will adhere to the glue and leave a precious coat of gorgeous sparkle.  This type of fine fine glitter is best though if you can find it.  It does look exactly like this and I have seen it many times but it does not come with a label name.
