Next is Kelly. Her work is very attractive!
Hello Kelly Szafron here today with my project for the collaboration. I had a lot of fun making a sparkly card with products from Chibitronics and Sweet Stamp Shop! When my three year old daughter saw the card she claimed it as hers. The stamps I used are Sweet Stamp Shops sets “Royal Wish” and “Bright Star”.
To start with I stamped and colored the stars on a piece of bristol card stock (I find Distress Inks blend well on bristol paper). I then colored the stars with a sparkly Jelly Roll Pen and coated them with Glossy Accents. I stamped and masked the castle. When the Glossy Accents on the stars dried I blended three Distress Ink colors over the stars. I stamped the solid stars with the same Distress Inks that I blended. I then spritzed the background with a shimmer spray. I removed the mask from the castle and used a blender pen to color the castle with Distress Inks. I heat embossed the sentiment. I got so caught up in making my card that I forgot to photograph my Chibitronic circuit! I used white LED Stickers for the stars and a pink LED sticker for the shooting star. I used a Chibitronics Effects sticker to make the stars sparkle even more, please click the link to see the stars in action.
Thanks so much for visiting and be sure to come back tomorrow for inspiration!
