Shine Bright

Happy Sunday All and welcome to my blog! Today I want to share a card I've made using two of Whimsy's newly released  clear sets - Shine Bright and Wish Upon a Star.  The back ground paper was created by stamping with the stars background stamp from the Wish Upon a Star set onto yellow DP paper using Morocco Memento ink.  The crackle background I made using a stencil and Liquitex Super heavy Gloss Medium onto heavy water color paper. I love this medium. It dries clear and you can create stunning effects with it. You will be seeing more of that soon on my cards. Once the medium was dry (it takes several hours to dry, best over night) I spritzed it with water and sprinkled on some Brusho in lemon, orange and scarlet - dabbing off the excess with a lint free cloth and let it dry again.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark onto black card stock and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then used VersaMagic Lemon Lime chalk ink to sponge the

Whimsy March Release Inspiration

Hi Crafty Friends! Internet problems kept me from posting part of my Whimsy release creations last week *sigh*. But I am back online...yaya :-)  (fingers crossed it stays that way) and would like to share my creations today. On my first card today I used the NEW Distant Friends clear set. To create my card background I used the XOXO stamp and the 'two little hearts connected with a string' stamp. Stamping randomly with purple and violet memento ink. Then I took a Copic multiliner and doodled the frame. One tag was cut out from black cardstock and the other from watercolor paper, misted with water and sprinkled with brusho. I love the effect that it created. I stamped the sentiment onto watercolor paper and layered it with black cardstock to match the tags. To embellish my card I used a single violet pearl and a mulberry paper butterfly. My second card uses the NEW Wish Upon a Star clear set. Can you tell that I'm in love with Brusho a
