Today in celebration, I decided to make this card
For the Addicted To CAS - Sparkle challenge
Where Kylie is generously donating a $20 certificate to her Happy Little Stampers Store
How cool is that? Here are the rest of the pictures and I will outline what I used and how below.
First, I stamped the flourish tree from the Kirsty Wiseman 'Joy To The World' stamp set with 'Delicata' gold pigment ink and brushed over it with Perfect Pearls 'Perfect Gold' mica powder and sprayed lightly with water to set.
I knew that I didn't want the gold to completely overpower the design, so I opted to stamp the sentiment, a Crafty Impressions stamp from the 'Christmas Baubles Sentiments' stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink.
Next, in order to balance the design, I rubbed the Delicata gold ink pad down the side of the card and added a black card-stock strip to balance the design and brushed that too with the Perfect Pearls powder. Then I fussy cut the bottom of the stamped panel around the base of the tree for a little added interest.
Then I mounted the panel on top of the card base with craft foam for a little dimension and finished the whole thing off with some red gems, gold Stickles and some splatters of gold watercolour paints by Fine Tec which is a set of five different shades of gold and one silver.
That's it for today folks. I hope you join in over at ATCAS for a chance to win the $20 HLS gift certificate and have a great day of crafting! Thanks for sticking with me all this time. Hazel xx
