...Technique Lovers Challenge #147

This is my submission for today's Technique Lovers Challenge at SCS. We were to use the Dazzling Diamond Dust technique on our cards today, and this is what I came up with. I started with a card base of River Rock that measures 5-1/2" X 8-1/2" folded in half to open at the right. The next layer up is a piece of paper from the Holiday Harmony Designer Series Paper line. It measures 5-3/8" X 4-1/8", and the edges are sponged in Purely Pomegranate with a Sponge Dauber. The focal image is Whisper White (3-1/2" square) stamped using the snowflakes from "Snow Burst" in River Rock and Purely Pomegranate. The entire panel is covered with VersaMark, then embossed in Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder...this gives the whole image some awesome sparkle! I matted the panel onto pomegranate (3-5/8" square), then onto river again (3-3/4" square). I used piece of the 15/16" Purely Pomegranate Satin Ribbon to tie around the center of the focal panel, then used Dimensionals to pop the image up off of the card base. I used the sentiment from "Peaceful Wishes" on the bottom of the card, and stamped it in Basic Gray. Clear Rhinestones were added to the center of the largest snowflakes and the ends of the sentiment using Mini Glue Dots.

That's it for today......promise!

Paper: River Rock, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White, Holida Harmony Designer Series Paper
