CASology #51 (Fireworks), Simon Says Stamp – 3 July (Patriotic)

I’ve a card to share tonight for CASology, where the cue card is ‘Fireworks’ … seems July’s full of opportunities for them … Canada Day, 4th of July and here in France, La Fete Nationale next Sunday (sometimes known as Bastille Day in other countries).  As this card is celebrating national days, I’m also entering it at Simon Says Stamp, where there’s a ‘Patriotic’ theme …

I wanted to have lots of celebratory sparkle on this card, so inked the TAWS image up with two sets of inks before stamping … first clear Versamark, then some of my new dye based ones.  Using the Versamark allowed me the time to stamp it all up before heat embossing with holographic sparkle embossing powder.  I did the same with the PS sentiment and then mounted the firework panel onto glitter card.   It looks reasonably sparkley in the photo (better if you click on it) but IRL it looks sooo SPARKLEY!

I’m off to see what pyrotechnical delights everyone else has come up with.  Thanks so much, as always, for coming by, your visits and comments are a delight!  Anita 🙂

    Great idea to ‘double ink’ them so you get sparkle and colour! Love the fun colour scheme, too! Thanks for playing along with us at CASology this week, Anita!
