Sparkle and shimmer!

I just love sparkle and shimmer. This project has lots and lots of it, trust me. You just can't see it very well in the photo.

I wanted to do a smoosh background, so I dropped some reinkers onto my craft mat, misted lightly with water and this is where the smooosh came in. Smoosh, smoosh, smoosh the tag and dry. Then I sprayed with gold glimmer mist. Oooooo, it is so pretty in real life. The bottom of the tag is punched with a Martha Stewart punch. Now I always get the back of my project messy when I do the smoosh technique, so I adhered it to a folded piece of artichoke cardstock. The green was just too flat with all that sparkle, so I misted it with the gold as well. Oh yeah, that's the ticket. I scored the top of the tag and the card so it would bend and open properly and then punched through all layers and tied the ribbons. So pretty. The image was also stamped onto a tag and clear embossed, then colored with Copic markers and AtYou Spica pens. I added some liquid pearls to the pin heads. This was cut/embossed using Spellbinders scalloped circle, misted with gold glimmer mist and then popped up with foam squares. What loveliness!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a beautiful day full of love and happiness!
