Embossed kraft with sparkles

Hi crafters. I have another card for the Simon Says Stamp challenges. I started by cutting kraft card stock with the Poppy Stamps Happy Bday POP Culture cut out die. This is a negative sentiment die. I then embossed the panel using the Kaisercraft Weave embossing folder. I rubbed my embossing ink pad over the raised bits and clear embossed it. I applied diluted Prima opal paint plus silver and blue paint to the surface and sprayed it with water. I rubbed off any paint on the embossing. The paint has a sheen in the light.

I glued some turquoise glitter cardstock behind the negative sentiment and sewed a sparkly twine around the edge. It seemed to need something else so I cut 7 Waffleflower Tiny Candles from the offcuts of kraft and painted them using the paints from the panel. I glued tiny scraps of turquoise glitter cardstock behind the candles as well as a few layers of scrap cardstock. I glued tiny bits of gold glitter cardstock behind the flames and added gold wax and paint to the flames

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: Dry embossing.

Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Make it sparkle.

Happy crafting,

Christine
