Winner!! Cute Card Thursday-Birthstones Challenge! Hologram Grapes MMSC109

Today I made a card using SU! Hologram Highlights for the glitter on the grapes. The image by Priscillastyles http://priscillastyles-store.blogspot.com/ was printed and heat set using a embossing heat gun then the background was sponged with SU! Basic Gray. The image was colored using Prismacolor watercolor pencils & the grapes were covered with SU! Crystal Effects. SU! Hologram Highlights were added by dipping a stiff bristle brush into the HH and running my finger across the bristles to create a "snowing" of the glitter over the grapes. Once the Crystal Effects & HH were completely dry I finished the leaves with more CE. The image was then cut using a Coluzzle & the card was assembled using paper from Reflections and DCWV. A Zig Silver pen and SU! Spray tool were used to mist the background paper with silver. The three background "ribbons" were cut from the paper with black organdy ribbon & Martha Stewart ribbon as the finishing touches. I hope this card will inspire you to join us in the different challenges this week.
