This week’s Midweek Throwdown theme over at Operation Write Home is to Let Your Light Shine and to use something in your card that is a light source or uses a sentiment with the word shine or light, etc. (I only have one sentiment stamp with the word shine). I am in need of some Any Hero cards for my box to be shipped mid March. Not having any light bulbs or sun or moon stamps or papers (and I am a little bit burned out with the whole sponging/brayering thing to make my own scenes), I really had to put my mind to work (eeh!). I do however have lots of birthday stamps including candles (umm oh yea candles are a light source).
Whose light doesn’t shine brighter than our heroes? I used candles because that is what I have as a light source. So here is my card.
Star stencil from My Favorite Things sponged with Tim Holtz Picket Fence distress paint is used as a background on the card base. The candle stamp is from a birthday set I purchased from AC Moore years ago and is colored with copics (basic basic coloring) and a gold gel pen was used for the flames so they would stand out and then glossy accents on top to make them shine. The sentiments are computer generated.
Thanks for stopping by and I love seeing all your creations — you encourage and inspire me!
