Let it Shine Class - Altenew Academy

Today I'm totally in my comfort zone!  I love my shimmer pens, glitter, and sparkly goodness.  For this class, we were instructed to add glitz whenever and where ever you can, so I did.  One of my favorite lessons was water-coloring with Sparkle pens, like wink of stella or spectrum sparkle. For my card today I'm totally letting it shine!

Let's start with my stamped images: Garden Treasure was perfect for a card like this. Since I knew I was going to faux water-color I started by embossing each of my images in white powder.  Fussy cut them out and when to work on adding vivid colors to each piece. 

In this close up you can see most of the colors I used.  Volcano Lake (Blue), Moss (Green), Velvet (Red) and Persian Blue (Blue-Green)

To create the sparkle I used my Spectrum Sparkle pen to give my images a watercolor look, with lots of shine.  I added a bit of white gel pen for some fun. 

Lastly, I added the Frame Die in Gold Foil cardstock. 

Additional items include
Altenew: Vellum, 110lb cardstock, Oval Die from the Create a Wreath die set,  Clear Embossing Ink.
Other brands include Spectrum Sparkle Glittle pen Clear, Gelly Roll White 10MM, Hiedi Swapp Gold Color Shine.

Until next time
