Happy Birthday Sweet Stampin'!

 Good morning, it's party time at Sweet Stampin' - it's our 13th Birthday and we're inviting you all to join in the celebrations by creating a birthday card (or project!) - please remember we need to see some stamping on your entry- a digi stamp is fine as long as it's not pre-coloured! 

My image is a digi from Krista Smith, coloured with markers. The background is stamped and clear embossed using a stamp from Aall & Create, the sponged over with shades of blue distress ink, flicked with water and gold mica shimmer spray. The nozzle on the spray bottle is hopelessly blocked so I had a little brainwave (ok, doesn't happen often! and decanted some into an empty spray bottle, sprayed it experimentally and was delighted to see a fine gold mist on my background- not so delighted to find what else I'd managed to spray gold...including the image I'd just finished colouring....

Fortunately it mostly went on her dress and looks rather pretty, if you squint a bit you might just be able to see it on the image below :)

I fussy cut the image and placed it onto the gold glittery die cut (also Aall & Create).  The sentiment was stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.

I do hope you'll have time to join the party this fortnight- if you need some inspiration hop over to the challenge blog to see what the Sweeties have been up to.

Thanks for visiting
