Shimmer and Shine

My Aunt had an accident recently and I wanted to send her a cheery card to let her know we were thinking of her. I love the Sheltering Tree stamp set and after struggling with what my colour scheme would be, I finally settled in to make a card with pink and brown tones.

Now I really wanted to make the leaves on the tree stand out so there are a couple things I did to achieve my final look.

First I stamped the leaves three times. Once in Blushing Bride, once with Flirty Flamingo and once with Sweet Sugarplum.

Next I added some Clear Wink of Stella

And then I added some Gold Wink of Stella.

It is so difficult to see in the full picture above but when you catch it in the right light and at the right angle, the shimmer and shine on this card is quite stunning!

Thanks for popping in and I hope you have fun playing with your Wink of Stella’s!
