Fireworks Fun


Hi, I had so much fun making this card! I used the masking technique and had a beautiful distressed blue panel. Then I stamped my design using masks. Then I scored along what I thought was the edge of my panel only to realize it wasn't!! I cut the panel out and mounted it on a white card border to rescue it LOL!

This stamp is one I bought ages ago because it cost $3. (My sister probably talked me into buying it at the scrapbooking store near her place!!) I think it looks like fireworks. I stamped in Versamark and used mica powder and Perfect Pearls to bring out the image. I've taken a great many photos to come up with this one! In real life it looks so much better!

I'm entering the challenge at CASology where the cue card is Fireworks.

I'm also entering the challenge at Simon Says Stamp & Show where the theme is Anything Goes.

Materials used: Summer Soul Fancy Pants Design stamp; Distress inks; Mica powders and Perfect Pearl powders; sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)

  8. Lovely card! I bet it glimmers wonderfully in real life. Mica shimmer is so hard to capture on photo. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show!

  9. Oooh, Cathy, this is wonderful ... the sheen in the night sky from the firework bursts is fantastic ... they're almost backlit! Anita :)

  10. Cathy, this design DID look like fireworks. It's absolutely gorgeous. Love your 'save' too. Always enjoy reading how a cardmaker fixed a perceived boo-boo. The mica's really sparkled, and it IS hard to photograph some of these glitters. I think you did a fantastic job, both on the card AND on your photography. TFS & hope it is cool in your part of the world. Hugs
