Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #430


Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Use Plaid Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

We're Seeing Stars

 We are using My Favorite Things products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)

For my project, I am using Stars Above

 This set comes with many lovely sentiment and I love that there are great for coloring! 

I thank my stars

I white-embossed the images on Neenah kraft card stock at first and added some colors with Distress Oxide. It didn't look like much at first. Once I applied more colors and added the popped up star, it begin to take shape.

I thank the stars

I applied Nuvo Silver Glitter Drops to the star with an old paint brush. To highlight the silver scheme, I silver-embossed the sentiment and added silver DMC strings.

I thank the stars-001

Silver looks fantastic on appears almost molten for some reason. The inks also look gorgeous with a dreamy effect. Of course, the Virginia touches make this card shine (no pun intended).

What a super card, Virginia! The white embossing on kraft, as well as the soft sponging around the stars, really makes them pop!
