Make It Sparkle

That was the Clean and Simple Cards Challenge on SCS this week (CAS21). I decided to use the word sparkle from the Warm Words set underneath three sparkly chipboard stars in Fall-To Layout #46.

I first inked up these (retired) On Board stars with Whisper White Craft ink and dried them with the heat tool. Then I sponged two of them with Classic ink (Real Red and Pacific Point). I mixed Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds together in a paint bottle, covered the stars with this mixture, and let them dry overnight.

I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark ink and embossed with white powder. Next I drew a frame large enough to fit all three stars on the Night of Navy card. It was tough to capture the sparkle of the stars in my photograph, but I hope you can see it better when you enlarge the picture by clicking on it.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Super cute card, Vera! I’ve been wanting to use that FTL sketch, and haven’t had the time. You did a great job combining the sketch and the challenge!!

    I just got my GSG swaps and I wanted to let you know that I LOVE your card. It makes me want to get that die – and I REALLY don’t need it!! 🙂 It is a great card though – I’m glad you were in the swap!
