Let it Shine

I've recently taken a class at Altenew Academy.  It's called "Let it Shine" and the tutor was Carrisa Wiley.  I totally enjoyed the class... all about adding shine and glimmer to your cards. 

I manged to combine a couple of the class ideas in one card

I used a glittery embellishment that I made myself... the frame was made with some Scotch glitter washi tape die cut.  I drew around the inside of the die and added the tape around it and then did the die cut.  This left a lovely frame around the panel.  I then stamped the flowers - the big one is from "A Beautiful Day" and the little ones are from "Peony Scrolls" with Versamark onto watercolour card and white embossed.   I used an old Wink Of Stella pen filled with water to paint on Altenew inks.  Fussy cut and added to the frame.  The pink background card was embossed with a wood grain folder.  The whole panel was then added to a pale grey card base.  I love the shimmery glow of the flowers in real life.  My sentiment is from "Label Love" 

I was really pleased with my results with this card. 

Thanks for stopping by today.   Monday is a public holiday - ANZAC Day - celebrating our fallen soldiers from WWW1 in particular, but all other fallen soliders as well.   Hubby will be up for he Dawn Parade at our local Returned Servicemen Association memorial.

Dawn this is amazing - love the glittery frame and how you made it. The flowers are gorgeous without seeing the shimmer, which must be amazing IRL
