If the shoe fits new challenge

Its time for another challenge over at The Shoe & this week it is sponsored by Digi Doodle who are giving away a $10 voucher to spend. (hop over to the main blog for links).
This week, we have a photo inspiration
I have taken the orange & green from the photo to use & made this card.

I started off stamping a brocade stamp from Dimension Fourth & is part of their Paper Garden set which I bought when I recently went to Stamperama in Stevenge and stamped it in Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. I then printed off the Sunflower image by Digi Doodle & distressed the whole image using again Spiced Marmalade & Peeled Paint Distress Inks. I then used a black Marvy Le Plume pen & went over the image again to make it stand out & then spritzed the whole image with Dawn Bibby Golden Glitz Shimmer Spritz which has covered it in a gorgeous golden shine.

I added a gold piece of rik rak & sentiment from an Anna Griffin set & there you are. Hopefully you can see the shimmer as it is difficult to photograph.
