November SOTM – Created to Shine Blog Hop

Welcome to the November SOTM blog hop!

If you are coming here from MY HEARTFELT SENTIMENTS , then you are in the right spot ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating Makers on Melinda’s blog HERE, we have about 10 Makers on this hop.

I did a bit of masking to create this card but I am happy with the way it turned out.

So to create this card, I stamped the image on two separate sheets of Daisy White. The first one I cut out the centers of the lights and used it as a mask to add color to the light bulbs. I used Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserve, Chipped Sapphire and Spiced Marmalade oxide inks. After coloring the bulbs, I used washi tape to mask off the glow lines and add the color. I them masked the sentiment “created to shine” and only used the “shine”. I stamped with black pigment ink and used Clear Embossing power. I used the Stitched rectangles to cut the Daisy White and then matted on Black cardstock. I then added a bit of shine by adding Diamond Stickles around the bulbs.
