I have made a super sparkly card and the photograph just doesn't do it justice, so I've made a little video clip to share its full beauty.
I started this card by heat embossing the Lavinia Stamps "Star Cluster" using Wow! clear embossing powder.
Using a clending brush and "Blueprint Sketch" Distress Oxide Ink, I gently blended the colour from the edges towards the middle, going very lightly over the heat embossed stars so that the colour was hardly visible. I then gave the stars a light rub with a soft cloth to remove any ink that may have settled on the surface.
Using a fan shaped paint brush and a little bit of water, I added splatters to the area around the star cluster, then blotted with a piece of kitchen roll. This gives a lovely delicate detail to the background, without it being too obvious. I then gave it a quick blast with the heat gun to ensure the surface was dry.
I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Darcy" figure in Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink.
I then used the Lavinia "See a fairy, make a wish" verse with Versafine Clair "Twilight" ink, stamped in second generation to add text to the area around Darcy and the Star Cluster.
I used a piece of torn copy paper and Versafine Clair "Twilight" ink with a finger dabber to ground Darcy and to create the impression of the landscape behind her.
I used a gold shimmer gel pen to outline Darcy. I then used a silver glitter gel pen and a white Signo pento add a few dots of white and silver to the star cluster and to the wing area of Darcy.
I edged the card using "Chipped Sapphire" Distress Oxide Ink and then mounted on to a dark blue card then on to a white card blank.
Using a Quickie glue pen, I added a few dots of glue then added a very light sprinkle of Lavinia Holographic silver glitter. Finally adding a few holographic silver stars I've had in my stash forever.
