Hello and welcome!
I had a little time to play in the cave today and I made a card with a few challenges in mind.
I took 3 of the Essentials by Ellen Stitching Lines on the front of a card base, then masked off around them. I inked them with a collection of Distress Inks and then added blue Perfect Pearls. I cut the Simon Says Stamp "Joy" die out of white and Tonic Studios Chrome Silver Mirror Card Stock. I also cut two thin strips to outline the blue section. I stacked the sentiment up with several layers then added it to the outline die that comes with the set. Lastly I added a Carta Bella snowflake die cut from Tonic Studios Chrome Silver Mirror Card Stock and added a pretty gem in the center.
Here's a few more views - it's very hard to capture all the shimmer in this card so I took pictures from lots of angles:
I want to thank you for stopping by and please let me know what you think in the comments below!
I will enter this in:
This is stunning, Angie! The stacked and shimmery sediment and the snowflake and borders are dazzling! I love that you added the shimmer of Perfect Pearls to your panel. I just found mine again during my purge, so your inspiring post is very timely for me! Have a super Sunday! Hugs, DarnellReplyDelete
