sparkle & shine...

Hello friends!!   Have a little non-Christmas card to share today!  Will be posting this one to Color Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches


I recently got the Simon Says Stamp December kit of the month and so I inked up this fun sentiment that comes in the stamp set.  Some of the sequins are also from the kit.  The background was created by using a Memory Box stencil and some silver ink from Hero Arts.  I stamped the circle image and sentiment in brown ink and then trimmed it out.  You can't really see it in the photo, but I stamped the circle image over the top of the first one using watermark ink, applied Ranger Enchanted Gold embossing powder (also from the kit) and then heat set it.  Sprinkled around the sequins and I was done.  (ETA - I also posted this to the Simon Says Stamp flickr challenge found here)

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Simon Says Stamp #120 white; Stamps:  Simon Says Stamp; Ink:  SU! Chocolate Chip, VersaMark watermark ink, Hero Arts Silver; Sequins: Verve and Simon Says Stamp; Ranger Embossing Powder
