Retro Rubber Challenge #4

Black tie...

I am all about the sparkle today.  When Stampin’ Up! had the smooth spritzers from a few years ago, I bought the colors they had but never used them.  Today I decided to use the white spritzer on my black paper to jazz it up a bit.  I managed to spray myself with the spritzer a couple of times while I was at it! 

Anyway, I started with this wonderful stamp from the SU! evergreen stamp set and heat embossed it with silver.  I added the star in gold and love how the combo looks on the black paper.  Then I grabbed the spritzer and went to town.  I love the shimmer and shine.  The downside is that the spritz muted some of the embossed wording a bit making it look a bit muddled. 2 (586x640)I spritzed the base layer while I was at it and added a piece of brushed gold CS that I ran thru the linen impression plate.  I cut the image out using the Lil Inker’s stitched anytime tags and popped it up on the gold.  I felt that the card still needed a bit of something so I pulled the gold and silver thread out of the baker’s twine that I had and then put it all around the tag. 1 (640x605)I am really pleased with the overall look of this card.  It is definitely a better looking card in real life so I apologize for my photography skills!  I am entering this card in the Paper Players Black Tie theme challenge.  I hope you aren’t too tired of the many challenges I have been playing along with.  But they have been making me feel more creative!  I hope you think so too!

Thanks for stopping by today!
