Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- Make It Sparkle

Hey lovelies, I hope you are well :) 

It is Wednesday which means it is time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.


It is time for a new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week the challenge is

Make It Sparkle

This week we are showcasing
Hero Arts You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store




I always work with white card but decided to go with black card for this.

 I used a background stamp (all items are listed & linked below) and stamped it with Hero Arts Ombre Vintage Pigment ink and then heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder. 

To give it some extra sparkle I then brushed over the top using Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen in gold.

 I die cut the piece using some square dies and also die cut a square from the center and mounted some gold card stock behind it.

For the sentiment I  heat embossed it and used Simon's Gold Embossing powder. 

Once everything was adhered to the card I finished off by adding some Pretty Pink Posh Gold Star Sequins. 

It was so hard to photograph this card but it has lots of sparkle and I love the effect from the Ombre ink. 

 So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
