Shine Like a Diamond - Some Smooshing and a Flick of Gold Alcohol Ink

Sometimes I am drawn to stamps sets because I particularly like striking fonts, and the word "Shine" was positively singing to me when I saw the Shine Like a Diamond stamp set from Altenew.  The set comes complete with a huge 6 x 6 diamond patterned background stamp too, which I intend to experiment with soon.   This is not intended as a Christmas card by the way, so just look at the potential to use it a lot in that way too.


I did some simple smooshing using my Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks for this card, using Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade and Shaded Lilac.  Once the ink had dried, I flicked on some Pinata Color Alcohol Ink in Rich Gold.  The photo below shows this a little more clearly:-


Then I stamped and heat embossed in gold the large "Shine" sentiment and completed the sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.   

The cute glitter star is by Hot Off The Press and is from their Merry Christmas With Star set.  I layered this onto a star cut from Lavender Centrura Pearl card stock from Crafter's Companion.

I love the bright fresh colour combination of this card.  Now I just have to decide which "Star" to send it to !!


That's it from me for today.  Hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by amd please do come back.

Ciao for now and ................................."happy crafting everybody!"
