Sequins or Where My Mind Takes Me

Valerie Wilson is the hostess at Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog and her theme is "Sequins". Here's what she had to say about her challenge. 

 "Let's see where your creativity takes you. Sequins come in every size, shape and color and can be used in so many ways. Where will they end up in your project?"

Here's my tag with Stampotique's Karen (Daniel Torrente).

I will admit I was somewhat stumped with this challenge. Whereas I have lots of sequins in my stash, some kept somewhere safe, I rarely use them. In fact, most were still in sealed packets. After a bit of thinking, this is what came to mind. 

Karen was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko) and colored with Copic markers. When I was done, I added some flat and shaped sequins to the image, which makes Karen's outfit a bit less wholesome. 

A strip of red-liner tape was added below Karen's feet and a few sequins were added there. Then some Prisma Glitter was shaken on to fill in the space around the sequins. The image panel was matted with blue glitter paper from the Glitzy Glitter stack (DCWV).

Matching star-patterned paper from the Baby Boy Collection (Basic Grey) was edged with Distress ink (Ranger). Ancient rub-ons were used to add the sentiment, then matted on blue cardstock that had been punched with Ticket and Tag Duo Corner punch (Tonic). A variety of star and round faceted sequins were added to the tag, which was finished with some transparent ribbon.

Thanks for visiting today! 

I shall enter this tag into the following challenges:
