Shiny New Year- Shiny Cards Challenge
Greetings everyone. Today's challenge is all about shiny cards. I love a little bit of sparkle and shine, so this challenge was up my alley. Of course, it is rather hard to photograph sparkle and shine, so I hope the close up pictures will give you a better idea:
For my card, I tried to make it generic enough that it could be used as a wedding or an anniversary card. I started with the Random Lines Cover a card and stamped it onto a cream notecard with Versamark ink. I then sponged over all of the ink with Light Gold Pan Pastel chalk. The chalk stuck to the background to give it a nice gold shimmer, but the chalk did not stick to the notecard itself. To bring out the shimmer even more, I added some gold metallic paper for my layer as well as the rings. As a finishing touch, I added some rhinestones to one of the rings and added the Made for Each Other sentiment.
Here is another close up of the gold shine in the card:
