Let It Shine
Wow, another favorite class. This class focused on shine, glitter, metallic elements and such. I worked on two cards for this. The first one I used gold paper.
I got this at Michael’s by mistake. I ordered, what I thought was gold shinny paper and did the curbside pickup. It was hard to tell on the website what I was ordering, I guess because you can see in the photo it wasn’t shiny. It was metallic and had a nice cardstock weight to it. I think I’m using the back of the paper but I like it because it has more of a texture. I thought I’d try stamping right on this gold cardstock and I think it turned out great.
I believe I used the Cool Summer Night ink cubes from Altenew. For the flower in the back, Build-a-Flower: Hellebore, I used all 4 colors starting with the lightest, Sea Glass, as the base. For the flower in the front, Build-a-Flower: Morning Glory, I used the 3 darkest shades starting with Ocean Waves as the base then embossed in gold what would have been the darkest shade. That made the foreground flower slightly darker. I used one of the leaves from Morning Glory for the gold leaves, stamping them with Nature’s Wonders ink, and leaves from the Pen Sketches Flowers to stamp and embossed with gold for the black leaves. The whole card is mounted on a cream pearlized cardstock.
