Sparkle & Shine

Good morning! I have a fabulous post today featuring stamps and sequins from The Ton! My project includes layered stamping from Round Diamonds. I would love for you to visit their blog to see this post,
share with friends, and spread some love! Feel free to use the social
media icons at the bottom of this entry to share/repost! ♡ ♡ ♡
For my first card, I tried some masking with the gem outline stamps and
did some watercoloring with Distress Ink markers in Pickled Raspberry, Mustard
Seed, and Evergreen Bough on watercolor cardstock. I added a top layer
using some Gansai Tambi watercolors. I added a bunch of splatters using
the same Distress Ink colors from ink pads and stamped “you are a rock” in Ranger
Archival Jet Black ink since it is waterproof. Of course, I added
matching color sequins. I finished it off with
some Wink of Stella in clear!

Can you see the shine?

For my second card, I decided to tone it down and use neutral colors. I created a multiple circles shaker card filled with Shotgun Gray and black sequins. The gems were stamped using Hero Arts Mid-Tone Shadow Ink in Charcoal and Ranger Archival Jet Black ink. I separated the “sparkle more & shine bright” sentiments and stamped them on opposite sides.

I finished it off with Glass Slippers sequins in different sizes and more Wink of Stella. It works so well with these gems since gems sparkle, right?! 🙂

You can find all the sequins here! There are so many different colors and sizes.

I can’t believe I’ve had over 10,000 views on my blog. That’s so exciting! Currently there’s a giveaway on my Instagram. I wish I could do it more often but shipping adds up for an unemployed student 🙂 Happy crafting, my friends!
