waves of bling

today i decided to make a card for the wee memories challenge 18 (WMC18): buttons, brads and bling! what a fun challenge!

i have been wanting to do the 'waves' technique for some time, but never had an opportunity. so i decided to make this challenge the time!

obivously (or maybe not...?), it's a sunset on an ocean. on the sun's rays, i alternated between glitter and the liquid glass applique to create an shimmery effect, what's brighter than the sun, after all?

i also added some bling in the valleys of the waves, and also added some distress to the crests of the waves with a white stamp pad to add to the depth of the waves.

i am really loving the color combinations of orange/yellow with blue/teals. i love that they're such opposites, but still they go well together. needless to say, i really enjoyed making this card - it was a blast!



  1. The waves look like leather, when distressed!!! Ok, we need scrappy time together!!

  2. Oh my goodness, love your waves! thanks for playing at Wee Memories.

  3. This is my first time seeing the waves technique - fabulous job! I thought the waves were leather too! Thanks for joining us over at Wee Memories!
