Hello friends! It’s Caly with you today.  Thanks so much for being here with me!  We’re nearly done with the current challenge and hope you’ll make time to participate!  The current challenge is an inspiration board and is up for interpretation!

I saw the sparks in the inspiration board and went with the How You Bean and How You Bean Stars Add-On sets.  I stamped my jar and added the stars and stamped a few more stars for my card today.  I took my time coloring the stars to give them lots of shine and dimension.

Copic colors used:
Lid:  N2, N4, N6
Jar:  B0000, B32, B34, B37
Stars:  Y0000, Y00, Y04, Y18, E13, R21, R24

When done coloring, I die-cut the images and set them aside to work on the background.  On a white panel, I added Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink first in the bottom left-hand corner.  This is going to give our jar lots of glow.  Then I added Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide Ink and overlapped it with the yellow just a tad to blend the two together.  I finished by darkening the edges with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink.

To give my background lots of interest and shine, I splattered some Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust all over the ink-blended panel.  This is something I got when it was first released but I have been forgetting to use it!  I didn’t dilute it at all.  I simply dropped 2-3 drops on an acrylic block and picked it up with a brush to splatter it all over the panel.  It’s concentrated so the splatters and shimmer are intense and perfect for what I was trying to achieve. 

To finish, I first attached my images with foam adhesive.  For the sentiment, I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Let’s Bokeh set with gold embossing powder.  I love the look of sentiments when they are trimmed around the letters and don’t mind fussy cutting. 

I hope you enjoyed this card!  You have until Sunday, January 2, 2022 at 11:59pm PST.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Caly!


Wishing all of our Lawn Fawnatics friends a happy and crafty new year!
