star of wonder...

Hello!!  Well... the weekend is here.  My boys get Monday off and they are super excited to not have to go to school!!  I'm excited that I don't have to get up early with my oldest!!  Have a card to share that I made for a couple of challenges:  SSS Wednesday challenge (use the color pink) and CAS(E) this Sketch.  I recently got the beautiful Star of Light stamp and die bundle from Stampin Up! and I have been wanting to make a card with it.  I started by stamping the swirly image on some watercolor cardstock with watermark ink, applying white embossing powder and then heat setting.  I then scribbled on a light pink ZIG marker and then blended it out with clean water.  The star was die cut from gold glitter cardstock and once my panel was try I trimmed it down, stamped the sentiment and then adhered the star using foam dimensionals.  The panel was then adhered to a light gray cardstock base.  I took a close up of the star and the background so you can see the pink color wash and the embossed swirl.  I have never played along with any of the Happy Little Stampers challenges, but I was on my friend Greta's blog and saw that the current challenge is anything goes with dies so I thought I would enter my card there, as well.



Hope you have a wonderful weekend...


Supplies:  Cardstock:  SSS fog, Ranger watercolor, MFT gold glitter; Stamps and dies:  Stampin Up!; Ink:  VersaMark and VersaFine Onyx Black, ZIG water clean color marker
