You Were Born To Sparkle

Hi there!

Today’s card features the new Center Cut Star background stamp from Simon Says Stamp and the Born to Sparkle stamp set from Sunny Studio.  I just love the star shape of this background!

I started using Versamark ink and Hero Arts white embossing powder to heat emboss the background onto a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smoothe paper.

For the watercoloring, I used Champagne Gold from the Gansai Tamby Starry Colors set, and a pink Arteza Real Brush Pen marker.  I used a small Pentel Aquash waterbrush, but a regular small paint brush would have worked just as well.

While the paint was drying, I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark Black Onyx ink onto a strip of vellum, sprinkled it with Hero Arts Super Fine clear embossing powder, and hit it with my heat gun.

I trimmed the card front down to 4″ x 5.25″ and then wrapped the vellum piece around it, adhering the ends of the vellum to the back side of the card front using a Tombow Mono Dots Adhesive tape runner.

Then I used liquid adhesive to adhere the card front to an A2-sized card base and that finished up today’s card.

Thanks for swinging by!
