CASolgy Week 233 Glisten

Just popping in very quickly to share a card  I made for this weeks CASolgy challenge

and Happy Little Stampers whose theme is anything goes with dies


HLS AG with Dies Badge-1.png

Once again the weather here in Greece is very gloomy so it’s quite hard to see the glistening effect on this card but I can assure you it is there.


A couple of close ups



The sentiment is by Neat and Tangled and the heart shape is cut using my Cameo after stamping the heart and then scanning the image into the Cameo software. Instead of using the stamped image I used the programme to cut around the edge of heart using the offset tool . To get my gold glistening effect on the heart I used Ranger crackle paint let it dry then spritzed it with a mixture of water and perfect pearls in gold. After drying I added some gold leaf watercolour paint in a few areas and embossed with this wonderful embossing 3d folder by WRMK.

I really enjoyed making this card getting gold dust everywhere and unfortunately in the bottom right handed corner hence the black flower which I could have done without.

Do pop over to CASolgy and Happy Little Stampers the DT’s have some amazing cards to inspire us and the galleries are full of beautiful creative pieces.

Wishing you all a lovely Sunday
