Written In The Stars

This card is fairly simple but I really like how it turned out!

I ink blended the sky using Seedless Preserves, Blueprint Sketch, and Chipped Sapphire distress oxide inks. I love the detail in the sky once you spritz with water and let the oxide inks react!

The silver heat embossed stars turned out just as I had hoped, but what I think is an extra cool touch is the clear heat embossing I added to the black stamped sentiment. This is one of my absolutely favorite techniques for sentiments. You can see in the last picture how it gives the words a raised look and feel – I just think it makes a card look so professional!

I was originally planning on adding some of the animals that come with this stamp set but when it got to this point I decided that I really liked it just as it was. I think critters might have made it look too crowded. This was one of my more simple cards and I’m very happy with it. 😊

I also made this Heart Treat Box for the first time ever. It looks cute, but I have to say… it’s very small. I included the second photo to give an idea of the size. I guess it would be nice for giving something really tiny, like a single piece of candy. But I personally can’t think of many situations where I would find a use for this because of the size.
