This is the card I created for the challenge. I kept the color of the star as is since it complements the black sentiment. I inked the star using distress inks. I misted the star. I love the shine it created. Too bad, I cannot capture it in photo.
I applied Versamark ink to the sentiment, applied Ranger Sticky Embossing Powder, heat embossed it, and poured glitter to it. I am still having difficulty using the sticky embossing powder. It took me about 3 or 4 times of repeating this process before I was happy with the result. After the initial application of glitter, which didn't cover all of the sentiment, I brushed the sentiment using Versamark pen, then applied the sticky embossing powder. I guess the trick is not to overheat it, or else it won't be sticky.
The background paper was also inked with distress ink. I spritz this with water. I poked holes as a border using the We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy. I hand stitched the border using twine.
I embellished the card with sequins and stars. The 'you' is from an alpha sticker sheet by Lily Bee Design.
