Masks and Glitter

These cards were also part of my February class. Such fun! And so easy to make it sparkle when all you have to do is layer different sized stars cut from different papers using the Stars Framelits. This same card could easily work for a graduation card or some other milestone.

For the background I simply used VersaMark and a sponge dauber and the and the Stars Decorative Mask. Then I heat embossed using our White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Using an Aqua Painter, I washed over the stars with Soft Sky ink. A couple "washes" makes it darker. But take care not to rub off the surface of your Shimmery White paper.

I have since discovered that the Multipurpose Liquid Glue applied with the wide end helps the paper to lay flatter (it curls during heat embossing and "washing"). I decided I really like the effect of the extra layer of Glimmer Paper. You can cut the large star from the center of that piece to save paper, a neat trick when using the more pricey Glimmer Paper.
