It's my turn to share a card at the Great Impressions Blog.
I love how this turned out. I used H257 Someone Like You and E492 Twirly Background from the Great Impressions Online Store. For the Someone Like You I used black embossing powder and then applied walnut stain and spun sugar distress ink over it.
Here is a picture of the background. The paper is from Simple Stories. I used spun sugar and the Twirly Background. There were a few spaces where only 2 twirls would fit so then I just stamped the 2 to fill in. Then I used light modeling paste with Tim Holtz's dot fade stencil.
The crown and wings are from the Tim Holtz die Heart Wings. For the crown I put gold embossing powder on it and rhinestones. For the wings I used dictionary paper and shaded lilac distress ink. I used glossy accents to glue down the Someone Like You and wings because there is modeling paste underneath, and I wanted to be sure it stuck.
I added a little walnut stain distress ink to the edges.
I am submitting this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Make It Sparkle--the gold crown with jewels
The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge--Use paste/gesso and a stencil
Thanks for stopping by! Until next time my friends...make everyday special! :)
