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.
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.
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!
