Visible Image September Challenge Make It Sparkle

Morning lovelies, It is 1st of the month which means new challenge time over at the Visible Image Blog 
The theme is Make it sparkle and you could win £20 to spend on lovely stamps, just make sure you have used a Visible Image Stamp ! 

For my DT make I have used : 
And the Sentiment from Fae Stamp Set 



I have stamped onto Crafter's Companion Watercolour Card  and then coloured using my Spectrum Noirs- LV3,PL5,PL4,PL3,PL2,PL1. I then used my glue pen and went round all the stamped lines and sprinkled over some glitter. 
I am really happy how this turned out....especially as i am not really a glitter person. It is also a special card to me...I am not a very public person about my health, but among my various problems I have a condition called Fibromyalgia...is it a horrible lifelong disease, the butterfly is embraced as the symbol for Fibro  (a brilliant explanation can be found here ) and purple is also the fibro colour, the sentiment just seemed perfectly fitting too. 
Don't forget if you don't have a blog you can still enter the challenge, just head on over to the Facebook Group and enter via there :) 
Cannot wait to see your entries. 
Good Luck and Happy Crafting

  11. I never knew that huni! I do wish you had told me as that is one of my issues, along with the RA, ME and IBS! I always thought the yellow ducky was the symbol but I do love that butterfly - you have coloured and glittered it brilliantly. I hope you are having a good week and not flaring and I will check out that link as I've not heard of that - so thank you two times over Karen xx
