HYCCT27 Shimmer Stars



This is my last card for the Hope You Can Cling Challenge for Breast Awareness month. I managed to make all 32 cards with a different challenge or technique a day. All 32 cards with envelopes will be mailed tomorrow to the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas.

This is for the HYCCT27 Challenge Gettin' Glimmermisted Wit It. We had to use some kind of mist spray on our cards with some ink. I don't understand why it took me forever to figure it out. I went to Joanns & bought Shimmer Mist Spritz Silver & Gold. I will definitely be using this technique again.
I started with Brazzil Dark blue cs as the base. I sprayed the silver shimmer spritz all over the 2nd layer of the dark blue brazzil cs. (made sure I had my gloves on) I then used embossing tool to get the cs flat again & to dry it. I also used the versa mark ink pad of the stars, then used silver embossing powder & used the embossing tool. I added tiny adhesive silver beads to each corner. I stamped the sun with versa mark ink on the dark blue cs, embossed with silver powder, then cut out the sun carefully with scissors. I used a medium circle punch onto GP white cs, ran it through the CB swiss dot folder then attached a 3D dot. I also used a large circle punch on dark blue cs, then layered beneath the white circle. I added clear adhesive rhinestones around the blue circle. It's also raised with 3D dots. The sentiment is computer generated. I printed in dark blue ink on GP white cs, cut each word individually & adhered to the shimmer background.
