Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday!
Today I’ve got a card to share that I love love *love*! It’s a birthday card I made for a special friend whose birthday is today! He’s a filmmaker so I had a good idea of what I wanted to create and I’m *thrilled* that it turned out exactly as I wanted:
What do you think?! I *love* this!!!
I started with a Stamper’s Select White card base and stamped my sentiment from MFT’s At The Movies set using Versafine Onyx Black ink and Versamark ink. I then heat embossed it using Filigree Black embossing powder.
Next came the fun part – those spotlights! I masked off some areas with washi tape and used an ink blending tool to add Distress Ink in Black Soot onto the card, then followed in some places by Versafine. I did each area in turn and you’ll notice that even the ‘white’ areas aren’t completely white!
When all my inking was done I added the glitz! I sprayed upwards into the air with Studio Calico’s Mister Huey’s in Calico Shine, so I got a light mist of shimmer and shine, then repeated with Glimmer Mist in Graphite. I love the overall look – just like the misty nature of the appearance of light from a spotlight into pitch black, plus all the glitz and glamour of the movies too!
Well I hope you love this card as much as I do! And, more importantly, I hope the recipient loves it even more. *wink*. Thanks so much for stopping by today – I would love it if you would leave some love before you go on your way!
